    Four of the six mags in my 5.11 Bail Out Bag are loaded with these rounds (with tracers at 10, 20, 29, & 30 rounds). The other two magazines are loaded with Black Hills Mk 262 Mod 1 ammunition.

    Looks like the case of 64gr Ranger I bought will become my HD/SD ammo! I'll use my 75gr Hornadys for punching holes in vehicles!:supergrin:

    They don't look like they perform that well. Wound channel is a little weak and over-penetrated. I would rather have M193 to be honest.

    Thanks for the link. Good info. However, your ears will be ringing like the bells of St. Mary's after touching off a 5.56mm in an enclosed room. :whistling:
