Small-caliber projectiles, such as the M855 ball round, are some of the simplest munitions in the Army inventory. The M855 projectile (1) depicted in figure 1 is comprised of three components: a lead-antimony slug, a steel core penetrator, and a copper jacket; and is similar to the ammunition that has been used for the last century. The outer shape of the projectile generally can be described by three regions, the leading end or ogive, a main body, typically a cylindrical section, and the aft end which may include a chamfer, radius, or tapered section referred to as a boattail. This ammunition is used in service and training for the M16A2/A3/A4, the M4, and the M249 weapons.
