If you had the choice out a DD mk18 would you rather run m855a1 or a 77gr either black hills or IMI or the new PSA out of it? It’s a red dot equipped set up so not looking for trying right groups.

Projectile construction is the only difference? Mod 1 seems to run a bit faster in the few tests that I've looked at.

TMK or TSX. That will get you frag/expansion out to nearly 300. 77 SMK will be roughly 150 yards for max frag range.

Black Hills TMK for best wounding potential without barriers. Not the Black Hills 77 SMK. Not the IMI 77. Not the AAC SMK or TMK.

I would love M855A1 but I can't buy it in any reasonable quantity. I have over 1000 tounds of Black Hills 77 TMK.

Following. Post has peaked my interest as a MK318 hoarder myself. Glad to see someone producing it again- hopefully it’s as good as the mod0/1 stuff.

But really, will you guys please stop pummeling my wallet? My bank account has night terrors about what's going to be in your next daily deals ad. I should've taken up crack, it would've been an easier habit to break versus signing up for PSA marketing emails.

The Speer 62 grain Gold Dot/Fusion is one of the best "all around" projectiles for use in an AR-15, particularly when hand-loaded . . .

Don’t crimp the primers, it makes it too much of a pain for reloading

I'd love it if they sealed the aac 77 gr primers and did a true mk 262 clone.
