Here is an update from Molon published 08/05/23: AR15.com
"There are two modern schools of thought regarding the selection of the type of projectile to use in a self-defense load; the first preferring a fragmenting, heavy (75-77 grain) OTM type bullet and the second opting for an expanding “blind-to-barriers” bullet. The top performers in the fragmenting, heavy OTM type category are Hornady’s 5.56mm 75 grain TAP T2, the Nosler 77 grain Custom Competition and the new Black Hills Ammunition load utilizing the Sierra 77 grain Tipped MatchKing."

The 5.56 mm Federal 62 gr Trophy Bonded Bear Claw (TBBC) bonded JSP load is XM556FBIT3.
The 5.56 mm Winchester 64 gr solid base bonded JSP is Q3313 on stripper clips/RA556B in 20 rd boxes.
Both of these loads are the best barrier blind 5.56 mm loads ever produced for LE use; they offer outstanding terminal performance, even after first defeating intermediate barriers like vehicle windshields." DocGKR
"The new Federal 5.56 mm 62 gr TBBC bonded JSP (XM556FBIT3), as well as the older .223 55 & 62 gr TBBC bonded JSP's ( LE223T1 & LE223T3), the new 5.56 mm Win 64 gr bonded JSP (Q3313/RA556B), and the new 5.56 mm BH 50 gr TSX are the BEST general purpose loads available for LE use today." Dr. Gary Roberts
"A plethora of 5.56mm/223 Remington loads utilizing expanding barrier-blind projectiles have come to the market in the last several years. One of the top performing loads in this category that is currently issued by the FBI is the Winchester Ranger 5.56mm 64 grain RA556B. Terminal ballistic testing conducted by the esteemed Dr. G.K. Roberts has shown that this load has an average penetration depth of 17.1" in bare 10% ordnance gelatin with a recovered diameter of 0.46" (when fired from a 16" barrel.) After passing through an intermediate barrier of automobile safety glass, the load has an average penetration depth of 13.6" with a recovered diameter of 0.35" (again from a 16" barrel.)"

"The Winchester RA556B load is topped with the Nosler 64 grain Bonded Solid Base projectile. This bullet has a copper base that comprises almost one-third of the length of the projectile. Obviously, the lead core is bonded to the copper jacket. The bullet has a cannelure and a "Protected Point" design for reliable feeding in AR-15s" Molon on Lightfighter.net
