Default hornady ammo

Everyones literature reads real good on their own rounds. It does appear that Hornady has the least expensive ammo for my 338WM but I was wondering if there are any of their loads I should stay away from. I plan to hunt elk with my 338.

Use their 225 grain Interbond for elk and you won't be sorry!

Hornady bullets are great. I have used them for years.

I agree...the 225 Interbond is the best of the lot. While I am a Nosler guy, I use Hornady bullets in some loads, can't go wrong with them.

You've put up a few of these questions about ammo for your .338WM lately, would you be interested in custom handrolled ammo? Just find a bullet you like, there'd be plenty of guys around wichita that would work with you through load development then roll your "pet-load" for you.

With the exception of 162gr SSTs in a 280 Rem, I have never had great accuracy from Hornady bullets. Seems as I always start with em because of the price but always end up with something else. Have tried em in 270, 280, 7-08, 30'06, 7 STW, 300 WSM and 257 Bob. Only the 280 prefers em over Nosler or Sierras.

Same load I use in my 338, with a 225 Accubond. Very accurate!!!
