Would anyone here know the difference between the Hornaby XTP and TAP FPD ammo.You see,I live here in the Philippines and these are the both versions of Hornaby ammo they sell here.Which do you think is the better version?For your information,I'm getting them in 9MM.
Thanks in advance.
Same bullet, different case; TAP uses the XTP bullet...the only difference is the nickel cases for TAP.
The powder in TAP might be low flash, but I couldn't attest to it.
Either will work; as to which is better...well, if nickel cases and possibly low-flash powder are desireable characteristics, then, TAP may be better; if the XTP is considerably less expensive, that may balance things out.
Really, you won't go wrong with either.
