    Clearly you two are really on top of these things.

    Can anyone else tell me what bullet is loaded in these cartridges.

    Try the BVAC 62gr OTMRP. Lead core with a soild copper base. Not too expensive and so far has been plenty for hog hunting. I plan on keeping some for SD use.

    Just try to leave some for me. I'm going to panic buy some more next payday.

    Wow. I think this is the most confusing thread I have read in quite some time.

    I went to the link in the OP - and it is clearly for FMJ bullets. The box in the picture says "XM855" which would indicate the SS109 mild steel core "green tip" bullet used in NATO spec M855 ammunition.

    There doesn't appear to anything "bonded" going on at all. I would guess that part of the description was "copied and pasted" from somewhere else by mistake.

    This one looks bonded - .223 Remington BVAC PSP 64 Grain 20 Round Box 2870 fps Pointed Soft Point Bonded Bullet - at least I know there is such a thing as a bonded 64 grain bullet in .22 caliber. Never heard of a 62 grain bonded bullet in .22 - and certainly not a "bonded" "FMJ".

    Hmm interesting. That too is why I am confused. It seemed weird.

    A copper bonded / covered core. The copper will split upon impact, and the core being softer will expand. IT's considered an FMJ, because the outer is a full metal covered bullet.... it's not a hollow point. An FMJ .... full metal "jacket" ... means just that, it doesn't mean a "solid" bullet of one material.


    that's my .02 cents.

    I think Eagleks is talking about the Mk 318 Mod 0 SOST "Barrier Blind" ammo. I think the link to the "Cheaper than Dirt" stuff is definitely M855. If only based on the price....

    Timmy,
    I can't tell you who manufactures the XM855 62gn bullet but Master Cast has machine pulled M855 green tip, enhanced penetration, 62gn bullets for $95/1000.
    I've been using their machine pulled 55gn fmj for a few years and have no problems with them. You have to run them through a Lee .223 bullet sizing die to make sure that they are round but it takes little time. I'm sure the machine pulled bullets would not be the best choice for 600yd bull's eye shooting but they are fine at 200yd and probably good for minute-of-man shooting to 300yds.

    There are a couple of bonded 62's out there

    Ammo .223 Remington Remington Premier Core-Lokt Ultra PSP 62 Grain 3100 fps
    Federal Fusion Ammo 223 Remington 62 Grain Spitzer Boat Tail Box of 20
    Federal Tactical Bonded 62gr .223 Bonded SP (OUT OF STOCK) at G and R Tactical

    And I agree that the ammo listed in the original post is nothing more than steel core 62 grain FMJ like what the military uses.
