I like Hornady's stuff I just wish they offered a rifled slug or .22LR ammunition.

I can see your point and I agree but I REALLY like Hornady's products. I use their rifle bullets, pistol bullets, haven't tried their powder yet but I might.
When I tried their factory loads I was never disappointed, be it rimfire or centerfire.

I agree that they make good stuff, but this campaign makes me wonder about them for some reason.

My rifles shoot Nosler and Sierra bullets better anyway.

When I saw it in their website, I kept thinking "it has to be a joke." When I realized it was serious, I figured "good for them". Aren't they now the first company to develope a bullet for use in semi-decomposed flesh?
I hear they're working on some other new weird but useful stuff for next year. Like W-Max ammo, loaded with silver bullets for use on werewolves. I wonder if Zombie-max will work on mummies. Has Hornady tried marketing it in Egypt?

Silver bullets would be pretty expensive, and I don't think silver would hold up to modern pressures and velocities. I haven't studied it, but read it in a magazine somewhere I think

Really? I never saw any difference between Hornady and Nosler in mine but I've only been loading for my 30-06. Never played with Sierra much.

Really.....

Sierra Game Kings generally group for me a little better than the Noslers and much better than Hornadys, but I heard negative things here about their performance on bigger game, so I went with Nosler AccuBond for my elk hunt a couple weeks ago.

What range are you shooting at?

How did the elk hunt go?

I sight in an inch high at 200 with my 280 Ackley.

Got a nice 5x5 management bull. The shot was 298 yards.
