Anyone know where this stuff comes from?
Apparently boxer primed. Anyone shot it??
It has a black (not green) tip...is it true SS109?

It comes from Bosnia.
And it is steel core with a black tip.
It's also sold under the 'Hot Shot' name.

There is a review of it HERE

Anyone know who stocks it, can't seem to find it anywhere.

Natchez Shooters Supply lists it in their latest sale flyer, but not on their website (?)

SS109 only refers to the bullet itself, not the load. I have not shot it, but would think it is underpowered compared to true US spec M855.

The black tip is probably painted over the green, or added to unpainted SS109 bullets.

Bought a 1K case about a year ago, and have shot all but 200 rds of it. No chrono data, but it does seem a bit cooler than XM855. Satisfactory results, though, no issues with any of it.

If you read the review in the link that I have provided in my earlier post you'll see that one of the posters had chronographed the Igman through a 20" barrel at 3059 fps.

If compared to the info in the Frag Chart in the sticky thread, you'll notice that the M855 ammo in that post was rated at 3091 fps.

A difference of only 32 fps. The Igman seems to be loaded very close to M855 levels in my opinion.

I remember reading somewhere that it does not fragment like m855 due to either not loaded at nato pressure (yet it is ss109) or the jacket is too thick? Someone correct me if I'm wrong...



Just read your post zman--Guess I'm wrong...

I was thinking about S&B ammo- From the ammo-oracle

"Czech-made Sellier & Bellot (S&B headstamp) ammo uses bullets with thicker jackets made of mild steel which have been copper-plated. From the outside, they appear just like M193 bullets, but due to the jacket material and construction, they do not fragment."
