    Home defense: Speer Gold Dot, Barnes TSX, Hornady TAP

    Range use: any 193 clone.

    I think we are being redundant here.

    There's good bonded ammo out there. I however prefer the fragmentation approach that you'll get from OTM bullets. You're not really going to go wrong with either.

    I've tested it myself, but additionally, Black Hills sent me the penetration charts. For me, I like frag for reduced over-penetration, as well as remarkable performance out of shorter barrels.

    The thing I like about Mk 262 style ammo is that you can shoot it for CQB all the way out to 1000 yards and more.... all with the same round. The black hills TMK bullet (by the way) also fragments brilliantly.

    Since you have that other thread asking about the P4Xi, I’ll point out that with a 16” barrel, Frontier 68gr 5.56 follows its reticle perfectly out to 600yds, with the center dot being 200yds, and a 1.9” mount. I’m sure that any other 68/69gr 5.56 will also do well.

    Fusion MSR 62 is in my HD mags. With the rifle zeroed for 68gr 5.56, its POI is close enough, as is Vort-Tx 70gr.

    Don't squander money on "self defense" 5.56 ammo. It's all marketing hype. M193 will do a number on home invaders.

    This is a joke right? Mk 262 vs M193 isn't even close. Sure a 55 gr ball round placed well will drop someone. But even out of a 20" gun, fragmentation isn't reliable.

    I can't SME on the wound cavity and all that jazz, but I've read enough of the expert info to know it's way more than marketing hype.
