cutaway

This match accurate load is our heavy TAP® offering in 223 Rem. This load is suitable for a short barreled rifle that has either a 223 Rem or 5.56 NATO chamber. The 75 gr. bullet offers deeper penetration than the 55 gr. and 60 gr. TAP Urban® bullets. The 75 gr. BTHP penetrates with minimal deflection and provides rapid fragmentation, thus delivering more energy to the target. This bullet generates very large and consistent wound cavities, serving as an ideal choice for 223 Rem precision rifle applications.
