TAP® Barrier™ turns cover into concealment. Hornady® originally developed this ammunition to meet the requirement for a high-speed, barrier penetrating bullet that could be used for nuclear power plant security. The design of the TAP® Barrier™ round allows the projectile to maintain its structural integrity while punching through barriers, yet still initiate expansion in soft tissue. For patrol carbine programs or any tactical situation where the need is for accuracy, barrier penetration, and terminal soft tissue performance, Hornady® TAP® Barrier™ ammunition is the ideal choice.
