Hornady® Custom Centerfire Rifle Ammo
Best Bullet I've ever used
I have used a lot of different loads in my Rem 700 but none of them really satisfied me. Last deer season I used the 165gr btsp. 6 shots = 6 deer = 6 dropped in their tracks. I will not use anything else.

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.

Love this stuff
I use the 150 gr. SST in .30-06. VERY good ammo; the only down side is if you hit bone, the round seems to expand just a little too much, massive tissue damage etc. but that is to be expected from a 30 caliber bullet built for expansion. Overall, if you do your part it will do what it is supposed to do - and they don't run very far.

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.
