So it seems like ADCOM M855 may be a good stand-in for our American M855 but has anybody inspected the bullets?  I wonder if the jackets are thin enough for reliable fragmentation (or rather at least as "reliable" as LC/IMI green tip).

I cut one of the bullets after I pulled it to check for neck sealent. It is not a very thick jacket at all. I cut a 855pd bullet a while ago and still had part of it in the waste can on my bench. I could see no difference between the two except that the adcom one looked much nicer. Both had the small air pocket in the front of the penetrator. From what I can see between the sealing, the velocity, [thanks chrony guys] and everything else, this is true 855 stuff. The green tip missing does not count as most Countries don't use 2 types of 5.56 and do not need the green tip to tell the difference between 55 and 62 grain.
