Natchez has it on sale for $10.61/box of 20.

Civilians can buy it HERE AT NATCHEZ all day long.

It's the best defensive round I've found for the .223.

Check gunbroker.com, there is some guy who always has a good selection of LEO ammo. Think the guys' name is Meputtin.

true... BUT its for my personal AR, in no way authorized for use by my dept, used at work or in any other way associated with my job.

I have to check some semi-local shops... I want to try some out.

How does the BH 75gr "Heavy" match compare to the Hornady TAP load? Is it the same bullet?

Same bullet, and same load as the SAAMI-spec TAP load. There is also a "5.56" (i.e., higher pressure and velocity) version of the 75gr TAP load. Departments must sign a waiver stating that they understand that this ammo can only be used in rifles with 5.56 chamber dimensions before Hornady will sell it, and it goes directly to the department.

-Troy



The match load does not have a cannelure, atleast they didn't... Maybe things have changed..

I hear that the V-Max is the same roumd as the TAP round.

Any truth to this?

What are the advantages of this round and will it stabalize out of a 15.5 inch 1/9 barrel?

well brou, I don't know if they've ever loaded the amax for the tap. They have loaded the 55 grain vmax, the 60 grain soft point, and the 75 bthp. That's what I know, and the natchez sight confirms that. Now I don't know what's current and what's not.

It's the best defensive round I've found for the .223.



Is this the SAAMI load or the NATO load?

But he's not a LE Department - individual officers can't buy the 5.56 only DEPARTMENTS.

Impressive terminal effects - fragmentation starting very shallow yet it still meets FBI & IWBA penetration requirements.

It MAY stabilize out of your barrel. It works well enough (2moa) out of my 1:9 barrels (14.5, 16, & 20). Just make sure your barrel is copper free when you try it (it wouldn't stabilize in my 14.5 till I cleaned the copper out).

Some 1:9s don't stabilize the round - it has to do with manufacturing tolorances when rifling the barrel.
