For steel cased ammo that's not a fantastic deal. Plamettostatearmory ftw

I shoot the 75gr HP TAP Training ammo , no problems at all from me.

Mine was $160 at the Miwall booth at the Cow Palace.

Comparing the price of Hornaday steel-cased ammo with import steel-cased ammo is hardly a comparison at all.

It's Pretty much the same as wolf, laquered steel case. This stiff blew up a few police training guns... Check my post up above

Wolf's not even close to Hornady in quality.
The fact Hornady uses a steel case is irrelevant.

Hornady uses a different powder and bullet.
And the manufacture it to higher standards.
There's not a single documented case of a TAP Training kaboom.

I've used the 75gr Training ammo for years with no problem.
(Try ordering some now!)

It's damn good stuff!!!

That was also over 2 years ago.

Things change. Plenty of friends have fired tons of it, along with me.

The only problems is that it's kinda dirty, but less so than the Rem UMC value-packs I first bought when I started shooting.
