80965 - 168 grain A-MAX TAP Precision
80975 - 168 grain BTHP TAP Precision

Is one generally regarded as superior to the other in terms of accuracy, ballistic gel performance, anything else?  Thanks.

my gas gun prefers the AMAX compared to FGMM BTHP (similar to 8097) as far as accuracy goes.

Both are very capable. My rifles all seem to prefer the AMAX. I've found that the meplat variations(slightly damaged tips) on the BTHP rounds can cause a flier once in awhile.

So what exactly the difference between the 8096 AMAX 308 168gr ballistic tip shown here:
AMAX 308 168gr

vs.

80965 - 168 grain A-MAX TAP Precision in the red boxes?

Anything?  Same ammo, different boxes?  

And folks are saying the 80965 TAP stuff is great on large game?
