cutaway

TAP® Heavy Barrier™ turns cover into concealment. The 165 gr. GMX® TAP® Heavy Barrier™ is constructed of a monolithic copper alloy. It shoots cleaner than pure copper, fouls less and delivers devastating terminal performance. The GMX® bullet penetrates heavy barriers such as 1" laminated glass with exceptional weight retention while still delivering superior terminal performance.

NOTE: Maximum penetration - Not for use where over-penetration is a concern.
