Hornady 223 Rem 55 Grain OTM GMX TAP Barrier (Lead-Free) - 20 Round Box

Hornady .223 LE Ammo: Hornady® 223 Rem TAP® loads are Law Enforcement rounds, combining reliable functioning with consistent performance, low muzzle signature, and exceptional accuracy. Hornady LE ammo gives the shooter enhanced performance, with rapid expansion and bullet fragmentation.

These highly effective rounds penetrate soft body armor and make them a popular choice as a duty round for LE rifle programs and SWAT teams. GMX bullets are constructed of the same copper alloy used to make ultra-consistent Hornady bullet jackets. Copper alloy doesn’t foul like “sticky” solid copper, and strategically located grooves in the bearing surface of the bullet reduce pressure.

These additions make the GMX easy to load using standard published data for comparable Hornady SST bullets. Hornady engineers designed the GMX bullet to perform across a very wide range of velocities - from +3,400 to 2,000 fps. And perform it does. GMX bullets are designed to expand to 1.5 times their original diameter and retain over 95% of their original weight. They’re no slouch in the penetration department either, routinely penetrating over 30" in gelatin tests.
