Heavier bullets for increased stability to make sure you stay on target with your AR-15!
It used to be that shotguns were the preferred long gun of choice for home defense, but as time has passed things have changed. Today ARs are quickly rising through the ranks as a popular choice for home defense, and it’s easy to see why. First there’s maneuverability. An AR can be fired from concealment far more effectively than many guns, even outshining shotguns thanks to barrel size and overall size and shape. They can fire defense rounds designed to decelerate on impact as opposed to the way a shotgun slug can travel right through walls and hit innocent bystanders. If you use your AR for home defense, rounds like these from Hornady should be at the top of your list.
These Hornady rounds are made for your .223-chambered AR. At 75 grain they’re considered fairly heavy for the cartridge size so they’ll hit with more force than lighter rounds. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and expand on impact. Because they’re jacketed the overall bullet strength is greater and their expansion is more controlled, allowing for more penetration and a bigger wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 2790 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1296 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense.
There are 200 defense rounds in this box of Hornady ammunition. Hornady designed these rounds to fill a specific role, with nickel-plated brass not only to resist corrosion but also to make them easier to see in dim light, among other things, and using propellants that don’t create as much muzzle flash, which preserves night vision. These are Hornady JHP TAP rounds and they’re used by many law enforcement professionals. In addition to self-defense they’re also good varmint hunting rounds. If you want to be well-prepared, you want Hornady JHP TAP rounds. Order now and give yourself peace of mind.
