    XM855 and M855

    What are the specific differences between the two types of ammunition? What does the X signify? Is one superior to the other?
    I know they're both 62 gr steel penetrator 5.56.

    No specific difference. The X ammo may not have met a velocity min/max or something. But it can't all be rejected ammo. I mean... there's just too much of it available...

    it's even in Walmart in some towns.

    I still haven't heard a definitive answer about the federal XM ammo.

    I dont think anyone knows.

    If it bothers you, then look for IMI or Privi or PMC X-Tac first.
    Ill buy whats cheapest (IMI right now)
