For M855 (62gr) if reasonable accuracy is your goal, at distances within 100 yds you’ll be good to go with the right rifle. I get 2 MOA out of a Colt M4 heavy carbine (16” barrel) without really trying, 1.5 if pausing and watching my breathing. For comparison same rifle will shoot sub1 with most M193 (55gr) and .3 with 77gr MK262 Mod 1 clone handloads.

Tell me you’re trying to snipe rabbits I’ll tsk, tsk, but if for range, training, short distance sport (that allow steel core) or long term cache it’s good. For home defense, there are much better choices than any listed here

Yeah. This is just range ammo. Indoor range doesn't allow it, but I'm planning on visiting some other ranges soon.

Home defense is hollow point for the AR or buck shot for the Benelli.

Sounds good. FWIW — any NATO brass is gonna run a bit thicker than standard .223 and is excellent for reloading. If you ever decide to save your brass, this stuff would be the one to save as long as the necks or heads don’t get too chewed up. Good shooting
