55 gr. TAP URBAN® - Item No. 83276

cartridge
cutaway

The Hornady® 223 Rem 55 gr. TAP Urban® is the preferred choice for use in SBRs, carbines, and rifles when the probability for barrier penetration is low. Rapid expansion provides dramatic wound cavities, massive fragmentation, and prevents over penetration on non-barrier engagements. These factors make this bullet a great choice when collateral risk is high.
