Send me a few hundred like 500 minimum and I'll test them in my 6.5x284.
I've shoot the original 7mm amax which were aluminum tipped and they shoot well.
Very nice. I bet those suckers are well within 10gr weight and .040" bto of each other. Looks like some match winners to me
Ok , that's bad...
Don't forget to order your new Hornaday seating stem for these Special A-Tip Bullets. Don't want to mess up that shiny aluminum party hat!
Of course, that only fits the Hodandy die, we want to give them every chance to succeed against all previous history and odds.
Yeah the problem with Hornady is they have so many irons in the fire they cant maintain the quality control of other true match grade bullet manufacturers. I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and probably buy a box of 30 cals to try when they come out, but I'm not expecting any ground breaking results due to their let downs in the past with other "match grade" bullets.
I ordered a few boxes of 80gr ELD-M bullets awhile back and they were from two different Lot #'s. One Lot # was pretty good, but the other was sh1t and had a weight variance of nearly one full grain. Base to Ogive length wasn't particularly consistent either.
I'll have some of these new Hornady A-Tip 6.5 135gr bullets in hand next week so it'll be interesting to see how consistent they are.
Be sure to let us know
Just got done at the range, I'm at the joint right now...I'm gonna get one.
A joint? Farm out man!
Ahh..you think? 9oz. of 80 or 90 proof in one beverage?
Another fine example of Hornady "precision"
These are once fired factory 375 Ruger cases from Hornady ammo that havent been de-primed yet. I use them to make my 338-375 Ruger brass. Pretty significant issue with Hornady ammo here. Can you see it?
Is that brass from the same box or a mixed lot from someone else?
You mean besides looking like they've been beaten about the head and body with an ugly stick? Is the sooting a photographic aberration?
Think ya better put in the same primers!
Crack ho, oh my!
Only the finest from hodandy.
If seen primers mixed before in Hornandys "precision" ammo, 300WM
Not sure about this brass all being from the same box, but I have seen Hornady do this with other ammo they produce. My father in law had a guy bring him his 300 Win Mag rifle complaining that he was getting odd fliers all the sudden when the Hornady ammo he had before used to shoot really good. Guy said he picked up a couple new boxes and it wouldnt shoot anymore. After my father in law scratched his head for a while, he finally noticed there was about 1/3 of the cases in the 20 round box of ammo that had the unmistakeable brass colored Remington primers. The rest were all silver color. No knowing if the silver color primers were all the same either. Opened the other 20 round box of Hornady ammo the guy had and sure enough, more Remington primers scattered in and about rounds with silver color primers. He tried some cheap Remingron Core Lokt ammo and the rifle shot great!
