    It looks to me like the "black" ammo is the same stuff, just packaged differently. It shows the exact same velocity from the 11.5 inch test barrel. I would like to know what Hornady says about that.

    I just spoke to a tech at Hornady who confirmed that the TAP SBR 75 gr load it is identical to the 75 gr Black load. Only the packaging is different.

    If you look at their "Black" SBR ammo, they claim 2321 fps with an 11.5" barrel. I wonder if during development of the above SBR load, they realized they can market it to suppressor folks since it was less blast.

    I kinda want to try the Black SBR suppressed 5.56 and see if I can notice a difference in sound. Probably not.

    I don't think it will. For that, you need a copper bullet (TSX/GMX). These bullets turn a 10.5 into 150yds gun.

    More data:

    DD 10.75" (chopped) 2226fps, 1.7" 10-shot @ 100 yds, T-1

    This ammo does seem quiet (suppressed) compared to BH or IMI 77 OTM, although it gives up 150-220fps depending on the particular barrel. (10.5-11.5" that I tested)
