Adding to cart… The item has been added
The design of the 5.56 62 gr. TAP® Barrier™ bullet allows the projectile to maintain its structural integrity while punching through barriers, yet initiates expansion in soft tissue. Your 5.56 NATO chambered rifle was designed to take advantage of the higher pressure of the 5.56 NATO cartridge — which translates to higher velocity, higher energy and harder-hitting performance.

NOTE: NOT for use in .223 REM chambered guns.

    Top quality barrier penetration style ammunition from Hornady. Feeds reliably with no failure to fire or eject. Always great service from Mile High Shooting. Competitively priced and fast service. I will continue to buy from them in the future.

    Ammo arrived quickly and was in excellent condition. Shoots well and cycles reliably. I will be recommending MHSA to friends and intend to make more purchases in the future.
