Yes, bfskinnerpunk, that is good defensive ammo.

What sets it apart from military ammo is that the military is required to use ball ammo. Believe it or not, police forces do not use anything like what the military does when it comes to outfitting officers with ammunition.

Ball ammo is most definitely not preferred defensive ammo because it tends to pass through your target rather than expend the majority of its energy inside of the threat.

The TAP ammo is designed to limit over penetration so that a round will not go through an assailant or if a round misses its target it will not continue on through multiple walls. The VMax round loaded in that hornady ammo will create a devastating wound and will end a threat rather quickly if you ever have to use it.

(And you don't need more than 60 rounds on hand at any one time)
