  • Outfitter Ammo

    New line of Hornady ammo to try out. Nickel case, sealed bullet and primer. I like nickel cases for ease of extraction and corrosion resistance. Lead free, tipped GMX bullet at 2600 fps. 200 yd zero and 9" low at 300 yds. Not the fastest but it will do.

        Bubba, you would just need to jump to the AR-10 to get .243, 6.5 CM or .308

          What cartridge/loading are you referring to jimbo?

          I just bought similar, Federal Premium Trophy Copper. Nickel plated cases, 130gr mono bullet. MV 3060.

            That looks like very similar to the Hornady Oufitter.
            I had several boxes of Federal Safari with the Swift A Frame bullets for my Weatherby that I did not think I would use and sold them to a guy in PA. He goes Elk hunting in NM. They were over $90 per box. About the same features as yours and the Outfitters.

              Correct pighunter. Look at the chart of available calibers you posted. Not the first "AR15" specific caliber.

                Yep. The Sig Sauer Elite Performance is the only AR-15 ammo I can find with nickel plated cases. At Midway USA, the .223 had two poor reviews but there were 6 glowing reviews of the .300 BLK 120 grain.

                  I suppose you .300BO is working out really well.
                  Well, I'm immensely pleased with my 6.8mm also. Unfortunately, the ammo thing is a bummer.
                  I think if Rem had gotten the chamber correct the first time, it would have been more popular than the Grendle and the Black Out.
                  ...but we'll never know now! Will we? LOL!

                    Bubba, so far so good with the .300BO in my rifles. I've killed one buck when I was shooting a supersonic factory load and one with a subsonic factory load. Both were neck shots. I had one doe run off and apparently survive a subsonic shoulder hit. (Caught her on camera weeks later)

                    I keep one upper sighted in for the subsonic and another upper sighted in for the supersonic handload I'm now using. Both with the suppressor attached are easy on the ears and not cumbersome in a blind nor sneaking through the woods.

                    Due to your comments, I took a close look at the 6.8 but ended up with the .300BO because of being able to use standard 5.56 magazines and BCG's.

                        My Son-in-law had a 300BO which I loaded for both sonic and subsonic and after 4 crippled deer he didn't recover he got rid of it and got a .223.

                          I checked the Outfitter ammo out when it first came out but soon forgot about it because I don't shoot copper bullets. The only experience I had with a copper bullet was a buck I shot with a 25-06 with a Barnes Triple shok shot through both shoulders. Deer didn't even flinch, no blood or hair and after circling in the dense laurel I found the buck about 150 yards from where it was shot. When I shoot deerwith my 308 or 300WSM with Nosler Accubonds or Hornady Interlocks they go down on the spot, have never had one take a step shot through the shoulders with my Accubonds or Interlocks. I tell people they run like hell for about a half of step straight down.

                            Well Sarge, in over two decades, I've never lost an animal shot with a Barnes bullet. But once shot a buck with a factory loaded Remington CoreLokt that traveled across a creek and up a hill before expiring about 200 yards away. The .30-06 150 grain pierced both lungs at 40 yards, blowing lung material all over the tree that had been behind. Sometimes stuff just happens.

                            Not that I'm discounting your son's experiences, but I plan to continue to hunt with the .300 BLK. The one failure I've had was entirely my fault and was poor shot placement using subsonic ammo. Just do a web search and you will see review after review testifying that the cartridge is adequate for deer within its range. It's all about shot placement and bullet choice.

                              At the moment, jimbo, I CAN still find ammo. There just isn't a wide selection for bullet weight and manufacturer.
                              Remington, Federal, American Eagle (Federal) and Hornady make ammo.
                              There are also some off brand makers I shy away from like Wolf and TULAmmo.
                              ...and I do have dies.
                              My AR shoots the Speer 90 grain "Gold Dot" bullet into cloverleafs, but finding 90 grain factory (Federal) ammo is nearly impossible.
                              When I can find it, I buy Remington, Hornady or Federal ammo, shoot it up and reload the brass.
