PMC - Full Metal Jacket - 62 Grain 5.56x45mm Ammo - 1000 Rounds


M855 ammo that's loaded by the same folks that supply South Korean NATO forces.

This PMC 5.56x45 ammo is loaded with a 62 grain bullet that is designed to be more stable over long distances than the more common 55 grain. This allows you to fire the rounds out of lower twist barrels (1:8 for eg) and maintain your accuracy. This full metal jacketed round has a muzzle velocity of 3100 feet per second and over 1300 foot pounds of energy. The green tip "penetrator" is often confused as an Armor Piercing round, but simply refers to the 7 grain steel core in the NATO rounds. This is a bulk 1000 round lot is ideal for range training, target shooting and competitions. Inside a case from the PMC factory, you'll find 50 individual boxes with each containing 20 rounds of 5.56 ammo that's ready for your rifle.

Perhaps no cartridge has as much controversy and longevity as the 5.56x45. Developed in the late 1950's to be a lightweight alternative to the 7.62x51 NATO round, the 5.56 was developed from the .222 Remington just like the similar in appearance .223 Remington. Care should be taken to never load the 5.56 in a .223 firearm: although it will fire, there is greater pressure in the 5.56 than .223 firearms are designed for.

Precision Made Cartridges manufactures not only ammunition for commercial export, but also for the South Korean military: a county whose military preparation can not be under estimated these days. By exercising strict controls over even the selection of raw component materials, PMC guarantees premium production that American shooters have come to embrace and appreciate. Brass cases are fully reloadable adding further value to this 1000 round lot that shooters and reloaders alike will prize.
