- Q & A
”Ten bullets through one hole” was what founder Joyce Hornady wanted out of his ammunition: performance, reliability, accuracy, and, of course, deadly stopping power. When he founded Hornady in 1949 he couldn’t possibly have known what a powerhouse Hornady would become, but he’d certainly be pleased. It was Joyce Hornady’s innovation and commitment that made the company what it is today. During World War II he worked as a marksmanship instructor for the military, and when the war ended he immediately noticed the surplus ammo being made available to the public lacked in performance capabilities. His solution was to make his own ammo – and ammo for the public – and are we ever grateful.
At 55 grain these are lightweight .223 rounds, making them capable of extraordinary speed. These are Hornady TAP FPD rounds made with keeping you and your family safe in mind. They’re tactically superior and feature Hornady’s unique polymer tip for fantastic expansion on impact; these rounds are capable of creating a truly devastating wound cavity. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun with stunning speed at a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and slams into your target with fantastic force at a muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. These were designed for personal defense but can also be used for varmint hunting.
When you order this single box of ammunition you get 20 of Hornady’s superior TAP FPD rounds. In addition to their top-of-the-line performance these rounds have silver nickel cases so they’re easier to see in dim lighting, feed more reliably, and resist corrosion. The propellants used are also designed for self-defense; they’re made to minimize muzzle flash, which protects your night vision. Hornady manufactures their ammunition at their plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. Each and every round is made according to stringent standards; when it comes to quality, Hornady is truly a leader. If you use your .223 for home defense, you need this ammunition, so get it. Now. What are you waiting for?
