Hornady TAP ammunition is a good choice for personal defense, and is used extensively by law enforcement agencies. This due in part to the fact that the propellants used in the loading of this ammunition were engineered to minimize muzzle flash. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
Special Note from Hornady Manufacturing:
We are making a running change to the TAP ammunition. This includes changing from Blackened Nickel Cases to Bright Silver Nickel cases. Using the Silver Nickel cases has all the advantages of Blackened Nickel and the added benefit of being able to see the cartridges more clearly in low light conditions as well as when checking for loaded chambers.
