I am looking for hollow point or ballistic tip ammo for my AR, but all I have found so far is about .75 a round. I love the performance of the Hornady TAP, and that's what I will have in my house gun and my long range rifle but damn it gets expensive----anybody make a cheaper alternative to regular surplus ball ammo???

Not that it performs even close to Hornady TAP, but, there is Silver Bear 62grn Hollow Points (or Soft Points).

Black Hills 75gr Match. Same bullet as the Hornady TAP, very low flash, much cheaper. Cost is $18 per 50 rounds of Blue Box, so its around $0.36 per round.

I second Forest's recommendation. The Black Hills 75 gr is very good ammo and also very reasonably priced considering it's capabilities. I would avoid the Ballistic Tips in .223 IMHO. They often underpenetrate and are far less capable than the 75 gr OTM for defensive applications. -Charging Handle
