I am planning to make an ammo purchase, and saw Ammoman's offer for the XM855 green tip (SS109), and wonder what ARFCOM conventional wisdom is on this round?

for my plinking purposes, would I be better off with the Q3131A, or XM193 products than the green tips?

If it matters, one of my AR's is sometimes finicky (with some rounds like PMC-55 that is).

Thanks

It should work for plinking as well as XM193. If the price is lower, go for it, otherwise there is no advantage to it, unless you like AP.

My M855 came in today from Cabela's (2000rds. with 6 ammo cans) total with shipping was $419.
Ammo is packed loose 2 boxes marked XM855PD. The 6 ammo cans were in the second box.
The ammo is mixed date stamps (01 amd 03 so far).

The 55-gr/M193 stuff seems to have better terminal effects than the 62-gr/M855 ammo. It's cheaper, too.
