Ammo Under the Lights

Just got some ammo Iíve never used before. Some Fiocchi 62 grain .223 and some XM855LC 62 grain on stripper clips. In fact, Iíve never shot anything but PMC Bronze 55 grain .223 FMJ and Federal American Eagle 5.56 FMJ to the tune of 1,025 rounds. Those of you that have read my threads know my Mini-14 is back to Ruger for the second time. Supposed to be delivered tomorrow. When it returns, Iíll shoot the some 100 rounds of PMC I have left first to see if it still has problems. When that is gone, Iíll be shooting what you see in the photos. I photograph almost everything, so if photos of ammo is boring, move on.

Fiocchi, XM855, and PMC



Same thing left to right.









I suppose I should put at least one photo of the gun in here.

Never heard of the term SS109 before. Google found tons of stuff on it.

Thanks. Good lighting and paying attention to what is in the background is important, no matter the camera.

As for the brain quote, not exactly true. You have to clearly define which organism. Then you end up with nerve nets, ganglia, and encephalized ganglia - in your case.

I got a 50rd box of the Fiocchi 62s as a prize in one of our matches. It shoots and functions 100% in my old 182 - groups nicely too but not to the same POI as the Federal and Winchester 55s.

I actually wish I could find more 62 gr Fiocchi but I haven't seen any in our local shops. Bought a case of bulk Fed 55s at the last gunshow - shoots very well in my Minis and ARs.

YMMV

I got the Fiocchi at AmmoToGo, but Iíll bet shipping to Hawaii would be a deal killer. I live kind of remote to be able to find ammo locally, so all my ammo is bought online.

Here is a description of the green tipped ammo from where I bought it.

This is 5.56 Federal Lake City XM855LC AC1 62gr. Penetrator Ammo on strippers. This is original Lake City manufactured ammo. This is 420 rounds on stripper clips, packed in a sealed .30 cal. ammo can. It is brass cased, boxer primed, non-corrosive ammo.

The link to where I got it.
