"These bullets are excellent! Holds a 2\" group at 200 yds no problem. Recommend these for sure, hornady holds it quality no matter the price."

"If you don't mind steel cased ammo, than this is a very good heavy grain round for the price, sub moa out of 20\" Bushmaster upper."

"Picked up 250rd of this the other day. Shot consistent 3/4 to 1 moa groups out of my Wilson Combat 20\" 1:8 HBAR upper. Best ammo I've found for the price if you aren't looking to reload or save your cases. Picking up another 250rd right now. This is for sure my new go to ammo!"

"Used these last year for deer hunting. Dropped a big 7pt in his tracks from 80 yards away, using a Robinson Arms XCR. Entered just in front of his diaphragm as he quartered away from me and exploded in his lung cavity. It blew out the top half of both lungs and the bottom of his spine. He was dead before he hit the ground! Took a doe a few days later. She ran 35 yards after taking one in the chest. Tried a little long range shooting as well. At 460 yards, I was getting 4-5 inch groups off a bipod. This is my new favorite round for my XCR in 5.56mm!"

"I was weary at first to purchase this product after hearing about horror stories of steel cased ammo. After 250 rounds through my Bushmaster 20\" HBAR with zero hiccups, I'm impressed. If you are worried about accuracy, this stuff was getting 1-2\" with iron sights unsupported at 100 ft. Sure it is a \"little\" dirty, but I clean my rifle after every range visit so I don't care."

"Grouped three quarter of an inch at 500 yds with a 20 mph cross wind. Can't ask for anything better! 20 inch drift at 500 yds. Browning 223 target"

"As the title suggests, this is the Rolls Royce of steel cased ammo. Hornady is not afraid to put some powder in their ammo and it shows. 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards is the norm, and that's from a 16\" piston AR and a shooter (yours truly) who's not that good!"

"You won't find brass case ammo that gives you this velocity and accuracy. I get 1/2 MOA @ 300 yard out of my Savage 1.9 twist that's match grade."
