I was wondering what everyone is having the best results with factory ammunition actually hunting and not target shooting, are most of animals you all are shooting dropping in their tracks or short/ long tracking job? Thanks

I have not been hunting with mine, but a good friend of mine is shooting Hornady Precision Hunter exclusively in his. He has taken an Aoudad at 300 yards, shot 2 hogs with 1 shot at 100 and a couple other sheep in Texas with that load. All DRT. He is also a big reloader of other calibers and swears by this ammo, even for target shooting at long range. He says he won’t invest in dies for PRC because Precision Hunter shoots so good out of his rifle for the price.

Where you hit them and under what conditions makes the different. Placement, not displacement.

There are no magic bullets, if you want to drop them in their tracks you have to interrupt the CNS.

I can't speak to what Hornady's gonna do, but it has been a pain trying to get my hands on factory loads. I have a couple of local shops keeping an eye out for me. Right now Bertram is out of stocok but Ryan said it should be in soon.

Are you looking for brass or loaded factory ammo? If loaded factory ammo, SWFA is sitting on a decent amount of both Hornady 147 gr. Match and 143 gr. Precision Hunter factory ammunition.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
