Is this loaded with a real 62gr SS109 projectiles or just a FMJ that weights 62gr.

Also anyone chrono any of these?

Thanks

Proofreading is optional these days for vendors evidently...

No where on PPU website is that load shown or any details to confirm the "penetrators" is a legit SS109 projectile. I also see some bullet Gr variances in the listing as well. 62 vs 63gr.

Pretty sure it's a typo/typos. I see it listed almost verbatim on other vendor sites.

I have not seen any recent vids/tests on this ammo, IIRC  2016 was the most recent that came up.

I bought some from OutdoorLimited.com in July 2023. Lot PPU 20006-03
Their descripton: Prvi PPU 5.56x45mm NATO Ammunition PPSS109 62 Grain SS109 Steel Core Full Metal Jacket Green Tip (Tips Not Painted)

It has a strong attraction to a magnet, so it has the steel core. And the tips are NOT painted. The boxes say "SS 109"

the picture in the ad has "ss109" right on the boxes. why would you think it wasn't an ss109 projectile?
