Hornady.223 match ammuntion ?

What is the difference between the Hornady Black 75 grain OTM match ammuntion and the Hornady "regular" 75 grain OTM match ammunition besides the price?

Thanks

I'm guessing the Black Hills is probably loaded a little hotter, as their Mk262 is which is 77gr SMK. I load my own with 75 Hornady match and am very, very pleased with it--you save a lot loading it vs. factory stuff.

The "black" ammo is supposed to be better for AR type rifles. What that actually means I cannot say.

Some are decidedly cleaner than others, however. 8208XBR runs WAY cleaner than ball powders. That stuff wipes right off if you use Seal 1 or something similarly effective, where CFE223 and 748 get really disgusting.
