    I hand load as well. I use Sierra, Nosler, and Hornady bullets. The loads are tailored to what I am hunting. You should do the same with factory ammunition as well. A plain jane bullet may be fine for deer but wouldn't you want a better bullet for elk, moose, or bear? I would.

      Until recently, I loaded all my ammunition on the bench, but I'm having difficulty finding components. A local resource received some Hornady factory ammo and I purchased that to avoid missing a varminting opportunity. Truthfully, the .22 Hornet and .223 loads were every bit as accurate as my own handloads, which surprised me, and the fire-formed brass awaits recycling for new loads when I can find the bullets and powder I prefer.

        Barnes TSX or TTSX loaded in full-length sized new factory brass. All hand loads except the .30-06 Spfd.

            I pretty much only shoot hand loads using, Barnes Varmint Grenades, TSX and TTSX, Berger VLDs, Hornady Vmax and Amax, Nosler Partitions and Accubonds, Sierra Game Master and Pro Hunter.
