I thought the purpose behind M855 was better barrier penetration over M193 because the military was having problems with it not penetrating cover. I’ve also been told that it goes straight through soft targets leaving a .22 hole and doesn’t tumble. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I would assume M1/M2 ball would perform better? Maybe the point is like others have said, to encroach more and see what they can get by with or to drive sales of M855 or just run the prices up.
