I use mostly Hornady bullets for two reasons............. #1 They are easy to come by and #2 They are accurate and I've never lost an animal (Coyote to Elk) using them. Very Happy

I stay with Sierra in everything, now. I've tried just about everything in my 35 trs. of reloading and finally settled down. A lot of ya'll like Noslers, but they copper up everything I put them through, bar none. 5 rounds and get the wipeout. Nuff said. gota

The TSX's and the Nosler Accubonds have been very good to me.

Hornadys don't shoot as well as Speer, Nosler, and Sierra in my rifle, but those red polycarbonate noses sure look snazzy! Very Happy
(You didn't say it had to be a GOOD reason, or even make much sense, now did you?) Very Happy

for 180 grain i like the sierra spitzers and of 150 gr i prefer the hornady corelocs.

the only problem ive had so far is the corelocs at 2700 fps tear to much meat up on deer but do reach way out there.

the 180 grain dont shoot as far as fast but they kill deer dead without to much meat loss.

both loaded about mid powder gr range shoot 1 inch groups using the same sighting.

Bushy you are a grouchy guy... santa brung you girly gifts or sumthin?

I have favorite bullets depending on situations, rifles etc etc. I dont clearly like 1 type over another due to use... a Nosler Partition I love for hunting but its not worth a crap for shooting prarie dogs at 500 yards, in that case I like speer .55grn bt's.

Sorry -- not excited, its just that there are so many good choices...

Tomorrow I get to shoot my new-to-me and first .308Win. Am looking forward to the problem of what bullets to use in it. One or two for hunting, another for steel silhouettes, etc. Very Happy

Well...Took my Granddaughter shooting today (It didn't rain). Went through around 500 rounds of .38 Special, 9 X 19, .357 magnum, .45 ACP and .30-30. Also shot up around 200 .22LRs. Hot damn...I get to clean and deprime and reprime and recharge and seat a new bullet in all them shinny cases again...She did real good for her first time on the range. Only had one premature discharge and because of training it went down range. (S&W mod 10s have hair triggers). It was a good day.

Way to go, Granddad! My grandfather taught my brothers and I how to shoot. We spent many hours at his place using our single-shot .22's on aerosol cans. Every fall he made us show we could shoot the buttons off before he would let us hunt squirrels in his woods. After the first year squirrels were pretty scarce and we had to focus on rabbits!

This morning I'm going coyote huntingb ut when I get back Daughter #1 and I are going to the range to try out my 'new' Remington .308. She's a Russian linguist in the Air Force and is getting her Texas conceald carry permit in January. Looks like we'll be taking the .45ACP and 9mm and along with whatever else she wants to shoot.


Should be a good morning!
