I got a 1000 from Hornady and Joel Russo got 500 of them. I have not had time to wring them out.

However, after talking with Dave Tooley who has shot them thru inception, tests to production, I think they will be very very good based on what Dave is saying. He thinks they are one of the best production bullets he has seen.

What do you/anyone think the new Hornady 285 will offer over say the 300SMK?

Have they actually reached stores? The last time I checked they were still unavailable.

Accroding to Midway's website they have some in stock. I still have 45 250 SMK and 100 Berger Hybris to shoot through before I order any more bullets. SO hopefully they'll be a little more available by then.
