Hornady don't but Federal does . Hornady is primarily a bullet manufacturer so it wouldn't look good to load someone elses bullets.

Partitions are loaded by remington and federal and possibly others.I actually would prefer the partition over and bullet hornady loads for elk.

Hornady's ammo uses only their own bullets.....and they don't make a partition bullet.

If you like partitions, I'm not so thrilled with Nosler's.....look to Swift's A-Frame. The front section of Swift's bullet is Bonded and Noslers is not. Many times nosler's bullet if found missing the core up front. That never happens with Swift's bullet.

IMO Hornady's interlok is every bit the equal of the Nosler Partition, minus the name brand price tag. Same goes for the SST's and Ballistic Tips.

I wouldn't hesitate for a heartbeat to use Hornady's light magnum or heavy magnums for elk. They're extremely powerful shells in any caliber.

The sst's and ballistic tips are in fact very similar performers.On the other hand it would be hard to convince most people that have used both the interlock and partition that they are equal.The partition does penetrate more while retaining more weight.
