They show promise in my 1/7, they shoot good enough for me to want to play with them. I just haven't been able to do much testing yet

I use mostly Hornady's for my plinking round in my ar's. They shoot just fine. I am not looking for a high accuracy bullet but something that is consistent and cheap to shoot.

I ran across some armscor 55gr FMJs a while back that were cheap. I don't recall the exact price but I want to say 4c a pop. After reading all of the reviews they are pretty poor when compared to the hornady's. Guess they are made in the philippines somewhere.

12 inches at 300 yds is what they'll do for me. Holds the chest of a military E silhouette man size target. Sometimes I just want to shoot E silhouettes but when I want to shoot for scores, I'll go with 62 at 200 and 77 gr at 300, 80grs at 600. When I finish up the 62's , I 'll stay with 77's and 80's unless there is a super sale.

This 55 gr bullet is good enuff for what I need it for. Its really more than I need when I shoot my AR pistol with 10.5 " barrel. Can I hit anything at 300 yds with this pistol and these 55 gr bullets...yup, I can make a E silhouette hurt but that is just a fun exercise to see what could happen. Certainly meaningless as the AR pistol is IMHO a 100 yd or less item and thats okay.
