Found some today for twenty beans a box...ouch. Had to buy one replacement.

What happened to the tacticool black casing? Surely these aren't as good...

Changed to bright nickel for easier visual loaded press checks.

Hornady 75 grain TAP FPD 2009




Since its introduction, Hornady TAP FPD ammunition has been loaded in black-nickel coated cases. According to Hornady these “revolutionary” cases “eliminate the potential for corrosion and improve feeding in all firearms.”

Now in 2009, TAP FPD ammunition is being loaded in “revolutionary” silver-nickel coated cases and according to Hornady these cases “eliminate the potential for corrosion and improve feeding in all firearms.” Hornady also states that these newest cases “are easier to see in low-light conditions and when checking for loaded chambers.”

The 75 gr. 5.56mm T2 is loaded in simple brass. At least the stuff we are going to issue is.
