That must be a standard amount to have on the shelf.. My local Sportsmans keeps 2 boxes on the shelf as well. When I bought my one box there where two there, and the next time that I came in there were two boxes there again. Just thought that was kinda funny.Sure enough Sportsmans Warehouse had two boxes on the shelf
+1. I have almost 3 boxes of the older 265 gr FP for reloading and almost a full box of light mags, and some other miscellaneous rounds, but I'm going to get a couple boxes of these just out of gratitude. Thanks Hornady!dpe.ahoy said:I'll get 2-3 boxes just to support Hornady for supporting the 444. It's the least I can do, I still have 3 1/2 boxes of the light mag 444 ammo as well as my own loads. DP
Hal, What is your handload recipe for the Hornady® 265gr FN? Are you using Remington® or Hornady® brass?Halwg said:I'd like to chronograph them against my handloads using the 265 gr FN. I'm getting 2270 fps out of my handloads in a 22" barrel. Hornady claims 2400 fps out of a 24" barrel. If we are conservative and figure 25 fps/inch, then that would be 2350 fps out of a 22" barrel. So 80 fps faster than my handload, but I'm always skeptical about Hornady's claims. I have shot 35 Remington LE, 30-30 LE, 444 LE, 338 LE, and have never chronographed velocities that they claim.
While the 265 gr Superformance is probably great ammo, my handloads are extremely accurate, and I have killed 2 deer in the 2 years I owned the gun, so I see no reason to change at this point.
There is always the postal match Ken! By the time I find time time to shoot a target for it it will probably be over, if it isn't already ???KEN TN said:I plan on trying some but no rush as I'll have to wait till next year to hunt.
I just moved to Denver and I understand I have to be here 6 months to get a resident hunting permit :'(
Guess I'll just have to spend the winter casting up a bunch of Ranch Dog boolits for next years hunt.
