So, you have an AR for home defense, SHTF - what ammo?

I send as many of what ever I have as possible and they can choose which they like the least out of the bunch.

Yeah, I don't have any M855A1...

Most people aren't sporting Level IV or even Level III. Level IIIA seems most common, but that is changing, I'm sure. Means stepping up from 5.56....

I'm still thinking M855 for penetrating walls, even though it gives up some velocity on armor.

if its level 4 that's a big move up. It stops quite a few calibers including black tipped 30-06

Level 3s defeating 556 is dependent on velocity. The RATING is anyways. It gets sketchy when they are shooting 18 or 20 inch barrels. But how many do that.

Getting shot at with an AR is a "less than ideal" situation to find yourself in to begin with.

I used to shoot exclusively Hornady 55 gr SP. Its accurate, but after a few pigs and coons, it seems to not hold together, and makes a shallow wound without exit. I bought some PPU 55 gr SP. We'll see how that goes.
