Anyone have hands on experience with this ammo? According to the website, this is loaded with Hornady HPBT projectiles in Lake City brass. Are the Hornady bullets used the T2, or just a standard match hollow point? How is the accuracy, velocity, and overall performance as compared to Frontier 75 grain 5.56?

I have not shot any. But my gut instinct is that these are not the T2 75 hpbt, but the Hornady Match 75 hpbt.

You're probably right; having the T2 projectile would be a big selling point, and they would have listed it as such.

The purpose of ogive change for the T2 had nothing to do with terminal performance; it was just to enhance feeding on M4 feed ramps.
