5.56 Nato MK-262 77gr HPBT New

5.56 Nato MK-262 77gr HPBT New This ammo is purpose built for increased accuracy at distance with rifles or SBRs that have been paired and sighted with a high-quality optic. With the U.S. military seeking a load that would extend the range of lighter weight battle rifles and marksman rifles already in service, a higher BC bullet was needed then the M855. While this project was initially started by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit it was soon followed by interest from the U.S. Navy. While we didn't develop this round initially or its designation, it does closely replicate the specs that were set by the U.S. Army and the resulting contract they made with Black Hills Ammunition for 5.56mm Special Ball, LR MK 262 Mod 0. We achieve this while remaining within SAAMI specifications to ensure an excellent and safe cartridge for pushing the boundaries of long-range capable firearms and our shooters. The bullet is a Sierra Match King OTM style with average muzzle velocity of 2550 fps from a 16" barrel, bullet's diameter is .224", SD is .219, and G1 BC is .362. A twist rate of 1-7" is recommended for best results....
