Re: Hornady bullets
When I first started reloading, I was told the top 4 bullet makers were Sierra, Speer, Nosler, and Hornady. This was ~ 20 years ago. I was told by 3 of the guys in our loading dept that I'd probably notice equal accuracy with Nosler and Sierra. Speer would be next, and Hornady last.
For me, they were correct then and their words are still true to this day.
