There's an old line about how if something seems too good to be true . . ..

Just seems appropriate here, in light of some of the claims they're making.

Not realy new news and Kevin brings ap a good point and there is a distinct lack off feed back on the new rounds in theater so far.

Been out of town for a few weeks... thought I'd take a second look here. You may well be right; paper ballistics is not the bottom line for sure. Iíve seen more than my fair share of "magic bullets" in my day. I was thinking back to P.O Ackley and his test on a Ĺ ďarmor-plateĒ using a .220 Swift with a 48 grain SP bullet, against a 100gr. in a .270 Win and a 30.06 using a G.I issued A.P round. In the test only the 220 Swift penetrated the plate. The explanation is a little too long to go into, but if anyone is interested itís in volume 1 of P.O.ís book. Iím sure there has to be some of the "same science" going on with the M855A1 round, or maybe theyíd have one believe there is. In any case, Iíd like to see the round in action with my own two eyes, out of my M4, on a plate I picked out by me to be sure.
