Hey there, young PMC! Today we want to tell you about 5.56×45. This is very popular caliber in Escape from Tarkov. It has different types (it is actually 11, omg! It is so easy to get confused which one is better) but M995 among them is the best. To proove it, we have tested this ammo on fourth, fifth and sixth armor classes. Check out our results!

But first, lets see which weapon uses this ammo:Ammo 5.56x45 mm M995

As you see, m995 is really worth it, especially if you use automatic rifles! Using this ammo will make your raids much easier, because then you’ll need less shots to kill your enemies.

This ammo is pretty expensive. It costs around 2000 roubles just for one bullet and needs to be stashed somewhere! So, if you want to save your tarkov roubles, you can buy full ammo case of M995 for a special coupon “krasivo” for 10% off! Ammo 5.56x45 mm M995

I guess thats all, my ambitious PMC. I wish you to have successful and rich raids!
