The tungsten was a proposal that was shelved during development of M855A1. 

Correct. The stuff I have now is copper jacket, steel tip, copper rear/core. The tungsten was shelved allegedly in part due to accuracy issues. That said, I'm averaging 4.55MOA for 10-shot groups with the new stuff, out of a proven 1-1.5MOA gun. Could just be a bad lot, but that really does go right in line with what Dr. Roberts said about "sure, it shoots <2moa now, but just wait..."

Which ASP are you drawing them from?

I'm either dead right, or horribly wrong. Either way the results should be entertaining.
