Hornady® American Whitetail™ Centerfire Rifle Ammo
I had to write this review after going out to the range over the season and out to the lease. First of all, rifles shoot different with different manufacturers and product lines - mine likes 150 gr Interlock out of Remington 700 LSS 300 Win Mag with a Leupold VXII 6-18x40.
I previously zeroed my rifle with the Superformance line of ammo but at 50% more expensive I thought I'd try this stuff out.
Got 1 MOA groups (1 inch at 100 yards, 2 inches at 200 yards 3 inches at 300 yards) when I did my part.
This is a fantastic value and I've tried a LOT of bullets. The Interlock is a great bullet and is essentially the same bullet design as Hornady's SST minus the red plastic tip.
Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

Hornady ammo Good stuff
Shoots good in all my rifles. I did reload but factory shoots so good just buy factory ammo now.

Let me start by saying that I didn't expect this stuff to work as well as it does. I bought the 150gr 30-06 rounds to use out of my Remington 783. The first time I took it the range, it was shooting just under 1 inch groups at 100 yards. I got my first chance to use it on deer a few days ago. The shot went through both lungs and blew through the back side of the deer leaving a HUGE exit wound. Needless to say, the deer dropped in its tracks. I love this stuff and it is what I will be using from now on. For the price, you really cant beat it.

Best Standard Ammo period.
Let me first say the load and brand you use depends on your gun. Now let me say you may find something that shoots slightly better than this, but if you don't want to spend a lot of money figuring this out just use this. It will perform well in most any gun and the interlock bullet has great weight retention and expansion in deer sized game. I started using this last year because this was all Basspro had. I have continued to use it in my standard rotation. My recommendation would be to either use this or Federal Hi-Shok. I've never had a gun that wouldn't shoot either of those brands. In contrast I have never had a gun that liked core lokts.
