Anyone have any experience with the brand. I assume it's a 55 grain, so it should cycle better than those little stubby 42 grainers.
I went out to the range yesterday with these. I had to convince the RO that they were in fact frangible as they look and feel like regular 55 grain FMJ ammo.
but after much cajoling, I got the OK and they cycled perfectly through my PWS not a single malfunction as compared to the Fiocci 42 grain which gave me a 10% malfunction rate.
So, although they are a bit pricey even for frangible, I will be choosing the Silver State Armory (SSA) Ammunition 5.56x45mm NATO 55 Grain Barnes RRLP for my AR when I go to Shore Shot Range in Lakewood, NJ. Now if I can only get them to carry it in their shop...
