​HPT doesn't a decent job of printing AFPDS, but even it isn't 100%.

Between HPT and PDF, you should be able to get pretty close. But you'll
still want to look at the actual AFPDS printed doc.

Indeed, and all you really need to print hard copy AFPDS documents is a
laser printer with host print transform turned on (TRANSFORM(*ON)
MFRTYPEMDL(choose appropriately)) in the printer description. This link
will help choose the appropriate MFRTYPEMDL:

Except in cases when a PDF, rather than a document printed on a physical
AFPDS printer, is the intended product.

In that case, good or bad, it is what it is, and previewing a PDF
generator by actually generating PDFs will give you the same 100%
fidelity that previewing AFPDS printed output on the specific model of
AFPDS printer you intend to use for final output gives you.
