cutaway

The Hornady® 223 Rem 60 gr. TAP Urban® offers high velocity and performance similar to that of other polymer tipped Hornady® 223 bullets. The 60 gr. bullet offers similar retained weight and penetration to the 55 gr. TAP Urban, and is the heaviest weight acceptable for 1-12" twist weapons. The heavier 60 gr bullet transfers more energy to the target for enhanced terminal performance.
