    In a 14.5Ē barrel, it comes close to halfway between Gold Dot 64gr and M855 in velocity.

    How does it group compared to the Gold Dot 64 and M855 with your sights set for each?

    Thanks for the heads-up. All but one of my carbines are 16.1" barrels and I have an 11.5" SBR. This info. on the 14.5" is good to have because there's one of those in the future.

    I just got some Hornady "Black" 62 grain FMJ in today. I only ordered 2 boxes for now to try them out. I'll see how it functions compared to the M855 and Gold Dot 62(s) if I find some somewhere. I'll set sights for M855 at 25 and then 100 yards and see how things work. I know I always have to re-sight when moving from XM193 to the M855 rounds.
    Never forget every word you spoke when you took your oath of office.

    I can find out for you this weekend. Iím Zíd for Fusion MSR; I donít really pay much attention to the zero shift when I shoot M855.

    Edit: If you are talking about actual group size, Fusion groups tighter than M855 in my rifles, just based on zeroing for each.

    IMI 69gr. Old brick home - not worried about overpenetration
