Is there any difference in these other than the packaging?

Hornady Item# 80877 - 300 Blackout 190 gr Sub-X® Subsonic
https://www.hornady.com/ammunition/rifl ... ubsonic#!/

vs.

Hornady Item# 80895 - 300 Blackout 190 gr SUB-X® TAP®
https://www.hornadyle.com/rifle-ammunit ... b-x-tap#!/

I ask, because this is available at the moment for $2.50/rnd (save a nickel if you buy a case) so I picked some up to resupply:

No difference except the box and wording on the label that probably says something like "not for commercial/ resale" or "LE military only"

They might ask for verification to sell to you, might get their PP wacked for selling to the public if they do, It's generally a price point, sales contract issue.

Same ammo tho.

Yeah, a year ago I was paying right about $19/box. Should have bought more; better investment return than my mutual funds!

Gotta love that Tactical Ammo Price.

If you buy a case it comes with sun glasses and voucher for a free virtual class on when it's proper to do a Tactical nod.

Since Hornady signed that government contract to supply subsonic ammo to the military, finding anything 190 sub is impossible.

Buy two cases and they throw in a tactical trimmer for your tactical beard.

Things are going to dry up even more for a while for sure. Good news for Hornady, but puts us non-military customers in a tight spot.
