The round can better penetrate steel, brick, concrete, and masonry walls, as well as body armor and sheet metal.

Stoner contacted both Winchester and Remington about increasing the case capacity. When fired from a short-barreled M4, lower muzzle velocity led to decreased terminal effectiveness, and unburned propellant fired from the end of the barrel created a brighter muzzle flash and caused more combustion debris to be pushed back in the gas tube, dirtying the weapon.
