No, bullets are swagged into copper jackets so in this case the rod stays in the core to initiate penetration with intermediate and hard barriers.Do the steel cores tear up AR barrels?
They wanted 499 for 1K of the XM193s, the only good thing about me looking at prices was I found 2 REM 700 BDM mags for 29.99 so I snapped them up. everywhere I have looked they are going for 49.99 or above.LOL! Gander they are high on crack.
$340 to $360 for 1000 would be more in line with the market prices.
