I am looking for some Hornady TAP 5.56 #8126N, this is the RED box ammo. Does anyone know where this is available? I have not been able to find it anywhere...

The 5.56 TAP is on the "LE Only" list from Hornady so most distributors are forbidden to sell it without a LE purchase order or letter head lest they lose their contract with Hornady. Not a law issue, but a company contract one.
The .223 TAP 75gr is almost identical and much easier to get.
You can probably find the 5.56 eventually but it's proven difficult for those of us who have tried in the past.
Years ago it was claimed that Grant at G&R Tactical could get it, but I never tried him. I've also seen reports that ammunitiontogo.com has had it now and then.
I quit wondering and just bought the .223 from Northwest Shooting.

Unless you have a very, very, very specific reason for needing the 5.56, I would just go with the .223 TAP.
