Very close, but not quite. It's actually a 5.56mm Lake City M855... No XM to it.

Close enough to count, however.

Correct, that one is the 55 grain version. I still have a little of the NATEC stuff left... I'll be posting a review here soon.

I'll take an uneducated shot in the dark that number one is an IMI cartridge.

Actually, scratch that. I'm going to say it's Remington UMC, probably 45 grain hollow point.

Not a UMC... That "M" is a "W".

And it was made by IMI...

Most AR-15 freaks would know it by name.
