Abstract : This report details the testing conducted to determine the amount of variation which exists in the 5.56-mm ballistic test results between U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, and Olin Ordnance, St. Marks, Florida. The testing included using the same 5.56-mm M856 tracer lot; test equipment; and 5.56-mm electronic pressures, velocity, and action time test barrels at all three sites and concluded that there was less than a 2% variation.
