    Enough of all this AP rounds and asking dollar a round. Even AFT stated that it wasn't AP. If you ever open the copper jacket you will find a small steel pin. Stop wasting your money on fake AP ammo. Now real AP 5.56 ammo is M855A1 and that goes for $1 a rds. The only pro on the M855 ammo is that it is 62gr and my rifle likes heavier bullets.

    It should easily pierce fake armor.

    I prefer M193. I shoot steel targets at times and M855 will pock the surface.

    Yup. My first steel target has some ugly holes from m855. I just shoot what I can find easily. S&B m193 is my favorite. Super clean brass and shoots great every time.

    Brother, this is the current world we are living in... folks like to get more than what shot is worth.

    I agree with you, along the same lines of asking 700.09- 100.00 for an AR15... (pshhhhh)...

    Anyways, you are not buying that **** and are getting your ammo like me from reputable sources and not paying out the ass for them like others...

    Cheers bruh
