Re: Hornady bullets
I am getting great results with the 60gr. V-Max in an evil black rifle that has become a favorite, a RRA 1x8 twist 223, the Varmiter version. These shoot in my rifle allmost as good as the 77MK, which is great for a varmit bullet. Others I know have similar results with the v-max.
But with the hunting bullets it has been more spotty for me. I just tried some 165SST bullets in my 300WM Sendero for some Whitetail hunting. It's a real shooter, but not with that bullet, so I went back to my 180Acc. loads & they are very consistant.
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
