AR-15s have a variety of uses, and one for which they’re gaining popularity fast is home defense. Rifles have an edge over handguns for home defense for many reasons including greater stopping power and the ability to be used from behind concealment since they don’t require you to lean out nearly as far. If you’re going to use your AR-15 to defend your home, make sure you get the proper ammunition. Hornady manufactures these rounds specifically for personal defense. TAP FPD is made to provide terminal performance and reliable, consistent cycling as well as having a number of other features that make it a good choice for personal defense.
These .223 Remington rounds weigh in at 55 grain, making them lightweight for the cartridge size. Being so lightweight allows them to travel at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts. These are Hornady TAP FPD rounds and deliver rapid energy transfer, beginning to expand immediately upon impact. As they mushroom they simultaneously decelerate, expanding to create a devastating wound cavity and slowing to prevent over-penetration, which serves to protect innocent bystanders. They’re made with silver cases so they can be seen more easily in dim lighting and propellants are used that create less muzzle flash to help preserve your night vision. This ammunition is made by Hornady with personal defense in mind.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 10 boxes of 20 rounds for a grand total of 200 rounds. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. 200 TAP FPD rounds is a good number because it not only allows you to load a few magazines for home defense but leaves enough ammo left for target practice. Because defense rounds such as these produces greater felt recoil than standard target rounds, the only way to ensure your own accuracy and placement is by training with them. One day your life, or the lives of those you care about, could depend on whether or not you trained sufficiently. Don’t take a chance; train hard, and train right. Hornady manufactures this ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska, according to high standards. Order now and defend your castle with Hornady TAP FPD.
