"...they (Winchester) would not exchange the ammo for more of the same product because as a civilian I should not have had the opportunity to purchase Ranger T-Series Law Enforcement rounds. To that end, let me say again that I appreciate your availability of difficult to find ammunition. I will definitely be doing business with you again in the future."



"Good Morning:
I would like to know where you are obtaining our LE packaged Federal and Speer ammunition for sale on your internet site? It is wreaking havoc with our commercial distribution.
Respectfully,

"You guys have the best variety of premium ammo anywhere. Thank you!"




"...thanks for all your work obtaining what is certainly the most interesting and useful quantities of ammo anywhere, at very reasonable prices."

"They're good to go.
They've got ammo that others don't. They ship quick. Their prices correspond to the scarcity of their products.
If you're for something hard to find, buy with confidence."

"...I've sent your information to some friends of mine and told them how helpful you have been. Of course, the first thing they ask is, “he is the cheapest”? I tell them probably not, but you have to pay for quality and you have that along with great service and reliability. I also remind them, what difference does it make if the ammo is not in stock. I think you may see some more business from IL before too long..."


Thanks for the professional service I got during my last order, I will continue to be a return customer in the future and will advise all my range and internet forum friends to check out this company.

Description
 
70 gr. GMX® TAP® BARRIER™ - Item No. 81265

TAP® Barrier™ turns cover into concealment. The 5.56 NATO 70 gr GMX® Barrier™ round is a fantastic option for tactical situations that require deep penetration and terminal performance after contact with any FBI established urban barriers. The GMX® bullet is constructed entirely from a tough copper alloy that will deliver high weight retention and deep penetration. This bullet is well suited for guns with faster twist rates and is extremely reliable for patrol carbine use or any other situation that may involve vehicles or barricades. This load, utilizing the 70 grain Hornady GMX® projectile is designed as a “barrier blind” round, meaning performance is only minimally affected by barriers. It’s not armor-piercing, but significantly out-performs conventional bullets in law enforcement situations where officers may be required to engage deadly threats in vehicles or behind light cover. It’s also optimum for hunting requiring great expansion combined with deep penetration and nearly 100% weight retention. This loading is designed for rifles with a rifling twist of 1/7” or 1/8”. Penetration in ballistic gelatin consistently runs 17-22”, with a wound diameter in the 5”range. Recovered bullet diameter averages nearly .50 caliber.

The 70 grain GMX is a monolithic hollow-point, but unlike similar monolithic bullets such as the all-copper Barnes TSX, the Hornady GMX is made from gilding metal (95% copper and 5% zinc). Hence the “GM” portion of GMX. The 70 grain GMX has a nominal length of approximately 1.048”, making it slightly longer than the 70 grain Barnes TSX. Molon posting on m4carbine.net

"...the Hornady 70gr GMX projectile...is probably as close as one can get to the fabled "Browntip" ammo, although I believe the Browntip uses a TSX instead of a GMX bullet. Arguably, the GMX is an even better projectile for its superior performance on windshields and its resistance to fouling barrels quite as much. " WeaponEvolution.com - "5.56 Optimized" alternative for Civilians

"(The) 70-grain 5.56 is just the medicine for those searching for a high-performing monometal round. The load features a Hornady GMX monolithic copper alloy bullet. The longer projectile offers shooters an outstanding .350 ballistic coefficient. This combined with its weight and 95-percent retention of mass after impact, the round has excellent terminal ballistics and can really reach out and touch a critter. It also gives law enforcement a solid choice for a barrier penetration. Note, the load is designed to function with 1:7- and 1:8-inch twist rates." Gun Digest

Please Note: While the 5.56x45mm NATO will fit in a .223 Remington chamber, the 5.56 is a military round that runs at higher pressures than its .223 counterpart and is not recommended to be fired in a .223 Remington chamber!
