BACK IN STOCK! This is the 75 grain TAP® SBR cartridge in caliber 5.56 NATO.
Hornady Item No. 81295. Packaged 20 rounds per box, 10 individual boxes in each order. All have identical lot numbers.
2018 production. The new 5.56 TAP SBR meets FBI protocol through all six barriers and is the first load specifically designed for short-barreled rifles.
Specifically designed for short-barreled rifles, Hornady's new 5.56 NATO
75-grain TAP SBR bullet meets FBI protocol and is infused with
technology from Critical Duty FlexLock pistol bullets. The TAP SBR
utilizes a propellant developed specifically for optimal performance in
barrels size 10.5 inches 11.5 inches, and is effective in both
suppressed and unsuppressed rifles. Sound signature tests have shown
reductions of 6 to 7 decibels compared to other loads, according to the
company. In addition, the efficiency of the propellant results in a 15%
to 20% temperature reduction, delivering a progressive burn rate.

"Went to a Hornady demo on the terminal ballistics of the Critical Duty
and TAPS rounds, Seems the way they described this round is purpose
built for SBR so that all the powder burns in the space of the short

Many rifles chambered in 5.56 NATO are not realizing their full
potential when shooting 223 Rem ammo. To get all the
performance 5.56 NATO can deliver, you need a
5.56 NATO load. 5.56 NATO chambered rifles were designed to take advantage of the
higher pressure of the 5.56 NATO cartridge — higher pressure translates
to increased velocity, higher energy and harder-hitting performance.
Firing 5.56 NATO ammunition in 223 Remington chambers will produce a
dramatic rise in pressure which increases stress on the weapon, risking
wear, permanent damage and/or injury.
