I work in a very small town with very little backup. We field one officer per shift. So, I keep M855s in my AR. If I need to reach a bit on someone inside a car, I can. Likewise, from what I hear, those rounds are devastating in soft tissue, typically producing multiple wound channels. Thereby the argument is that misses are my concern for over penetration. Making even softball size groups at 100 yards still workable. Short of barracades or active shooters, the likelyhood I'll ever use it is slim.
