I bought 1000 rounds of this Lake City 5.56x45mm military "Penetrator" ammo for my new AR15 5.56 Nato. Price was about $350. I am not too sure about the "Penetrator" aspect of this round, what do you all think?
Will this round put a deer or pig down?
Will a firing range allow me to fire "Penetrator" ammo?
The promo says this ammo is the stuff being used by US troops overseas...true do you think?
Here are the specs:
