Some folks on here crave/love M855 green tip. Others put the ammo down consistantly.

Can someone give me a short explanation about the M855 and why it seems to be contraversial?

Reason I ask is that I was about to order some of ammoman's M855 in crates and want to be sure that it is a good decision. Use would be to store and keep for serious shooting. Plinking I use AE223.

As an FYI my primary AR15 is an M4 style with 14.5" 1/7 twist barrel.

thanks guys

Not as accurate as XM-193.

Usually more expensive than XM-193.

Higher velocity threshold for fragmentation than XM-193.

If you need to penetrate a helmet at 400 meters or however far out, go for it. Otherwise XM-193 is probably a better deal.
