Hornady® Custom Centerfire Rifle Ammo
Better than any
For years I shot Federal Premium exclusively. After using Hornady custom for one season, I'll never shoot anything else. Hornady has 100% control of every component which assures me of total quality control. It's accurate(consistantly), clean, and gives consistant firing from round to round. Don't get me wrong, Federal is good ammo but they buy components and assemble from tier suppliers. I'll continue to use Federal shot shells beacuase I have found none better. I have converted quite a few of my shooting friends and all attest to my claim that Hornady's overall quality is secong to none.

150 grain Custom SST works
Awhile back, I wanted to find ammunition for my new .30-06 that will put venison in the freezer with a single shot. I can always find a box of fairly cheap stuff at the local sporting goods store, but I wanted something that can potentially be a little better. A new rifle with new SST ammunition using a new scope felt that I got what I paid for after observing the performance. Using a box to adjust the scope at the range, I was able to put 16 rounds inside the 6 inch diameter black circle on the paper. I was going to use the last 4 on the hunt in the field. One shot, one kill, and still had 3 left to use later.

I have been shooting Hornady Custom rifle ammo for at least 6 years now. It has never let me down and everytime I take my gun to the range to check it before hunting it is always in groups of quarter size with usually two shots touching at 100 yards. I hunt deer in GA and shoot 140 BTSP and have never had one go more that 20 yards. While sighting in my daughters 243 i used some less expensive ammo to get it close and on the paper and finished it off with the Hornady and there was more than an inch difference in 50 yards by using the Hornady. I will never shoot anything else in my rifles.

The Most powerful load I ever used
The Hornady SST 30-06 Springfield in the 180 Grain load is a shell that I will never stop using. The expansion is remarkable. Very low noise and very low recoil. I never had to use more than one shot to drop anything. cheap for the performance. Other shells that are like this are Federals Nosler Ballistic Tip and Winchesters Supreme Ballistic Tip. At 50 yards with the SST the entry hole in a piece of wood was round as a standard pencil. Exit hole on the two by four was round as a nickel. I found the bullet in a tree 70 yards behind it. Very great bullet.
