About This Israeli Military Industries 5.56x45mm AmmunitionFrom our friends in Israel comes a fine choice for long distance shooting with your AR-15. A Sayeret Matkal marksman could pull off some pretty impressive feats with this 5.56x45 round’s open tip match bullet – and we reckon you can too!
This round’s bullet is quite heavy at 77 grains, so you’d ideally have a barrel twist of 1:7 to properly stabilize it. That added heft pays off as this bullet retains its momentum and shrugs off crosswinds far downrange. This bullet only superficially resembles the kind of hollow point you might want for hunting. The opening in its tip isn’t there to promote terminal expansion, but rather exists because an OTM’s core hardens in place after having been poured in through it. The OTM’s jacketed base also creates a uniform surface for propellant gasses to exert their energy against.
The almost rainbow-like shimmer around these rounds’ case necks indicates that they were heat-treated. This grants them superior suppleness with which to seal the chamber during ignition, as well as the requisite durability for repeated handloading. IMI’s new production brass is complemented well by a non-corrosive Boxer primer and charge of clean burning propellant.
