The TAP FPD rounds are excellent quality tactical AR-15 rounds made specifically for use on human targets. That doesn’t mean they cannot be used on game or for target work, just that they are a legitimately tailored solution for tactical shooting scenarios that involve other human beings. This is the penultimate .223 Remington personal defense round. Period. Sure, you can find other rounds that are heavier that may fit into your personal set of preferences, but you will not find a load that is more specifically designed for terminal ballistics for the aim of stopping a human target. This is the reason why they are purchased and loaded by police agencies around the world. This is a round that has a specific purpose, and it is not punching holes in paper targets.
These are the 55 grain TAP FPD (Tactical Application Police – For Personal Defense) polymer tipped projectile and they are loaded in front of an extremely clean burning powder charge that offers sufficient ballistics with a brass casing, coated in nickel and Boxer primed for reloadability. This tactical ammo reaches 3240 feet per second velocity and 1282 pound feet of energy at the muzzle.
