Israel Military Industries Ltd. (IMI) recently announced a new 5.56 NATO load called the Razor Core. The load is designed to improve stopping power, accuracy and range when compared to standard NATO ball ammo.
The Razor Core ammo is already in production, and according to IMI, has been “combat-proven” by an “undisclosed customer.”
US-based shooting supply company Widener’s is selling IMI ammo they state is the same ammo being sold under the Razor Core name. Widener’s website states the bullet is a 77 grain Sierra HPBT MatchKing. Some are suggesting the Razor Core is a less expensive duplication of the MK 262 load from Black Hills.
