Which ammo companies have you had exceptional accuracy with?

Most but not all of my rifle customers reload for best accuracy. Those that buy ammo sometimes ask me for a recommended source.

Which pre-loaded ammo companies have you had exceptional accuracy with? I'm talking about 1/2 moa accuracy in the cases where you expect that in the rifle in question.

    Hornady Custom has shot 1/2-3/4 MOA in 3 of my guns (22-250, 270 and a 223) before I started reloading.

    The best I ever had with factory ammo was winchester supreme in 300 wm. 180grn. failsafe moly coated. Would shoot 1/2 moa constantly out of a a bolt. Never shot long range with them, only out to around 400 yards. I never found any thing else that rifle liked, until I started loading for it.

    fed premium with ballistic tips did very well out of my 270. I'm also having pretty good results out of HSM 185vld's and 178 Amax's in my 300wsm.

    Federal Premium in my 45-70 and 300 Win Mag (before I sold it). CCI Velocitors in my Steven's Favorite.

    HSM has been he most consistent across the board for me. I reload but start a new project with a few factory boxes to get closer to what I want and break in.

    Exactly what I do and HSM preloaded ammunition is the best IMO. HSM offers custom set COAL (in various lengths in some calibers for your choice), various projectiles including Sierra and Barnes plus your choice in Brass in some cases.

    They are my 'go to' for .338 Lapua with SMK's in Lapua brass.

    Nice folks to deal with as well.

    As an aside, Cabelas offers some calibers of HSM ammunition.
