    XM885 vs Speer 62gr GD

    Is there any advantage at all for 885 over .223 Speer 62 gr Gold Dot SP( other than price)? Thinking that as I shoot through my 885 to just replace it with the Speer. Thanks

    By advantage, do you mean terminal performance?

    M855 is a poor loading for a variety of reasons.

    Check out the Ballistic Info portion of the forum here: http://www.m4carbine.net/forumdisplay.php?f=91

    Also, the orange search button at the upper right portion of your screen works quite well for hunting down answers to more common questions.

    M855 does nothing particularly well. Speer GD is light years better than M855.

    That said, I only keep a handful on hand for Home Defense. I still have ammo cans full of M855 and M193 for bulk storage.
