Picked up some Hornady Whitetail in .223 60gr. Never used it before and was wondering is anyone else had? How'd you like it?

Going to be firing it in my Browing A Bolt .223 1:12" twist

I assume that since it's called "Whitetail", that it's for deer hunting. With the 223 for deer, the cartridge itself is marginal, so it's all about the bullet being used. I don't know what Hornady used, but if the 60 grainer is the Nosler Partition, then you have about as good a bullet as you can get for that cartridge. If you know what specific bullet is being used, then the forum can tell you their experiences with that bullet.

If the bullet is the 60gr Nosler Partition then it is fantastic. I have had very good performance from this bullet. I have taken down deer and hogs with no problem. My barrel is a 20" heavy barrel with 1/9 twist.

I doubt Hornady would use a Nosler bullet in their ammo. Maybe though.

uI also doubt they will use a Nosler. Do not think Hornady loads with anything other than their bullets. Wonder if they have made an Interbond or GMX in 224 and are using it.

Interbond or GMX in .224 would be cool. Especially in a 220 swift or 22-250.

Depending on the purpose, Hornady makes a better bullet than Nosler. No way are they going to put a competitor's bullet in their ammo.

I hope it works though.

Depends on your definition, I will take a partition from Nosler for use on large critters over any bullet Hornady makes.

Looks like they use the 60 grain InterLock bullet.

http://texasguntrader.com/index.php?a=2&b=305238

Very little listed for sale. Alamo Ammo has it for almost $50 per 20!!!

http://alamoammo.com/rifle-ammo/223-5.56...upc-90255380279

Not currently listed on Hornady's website.

If it is the GMX then sure should work fine as long as the bullet exopands.

if it is the interlock then I would be looking for another bullet.

It's an interlock bullet. Didn't get to use them on anything of size this weekend. Just a rabbit when checking feeders. Trapped a hog and used the pistol on it. Maybe next time.

It an "Interlock" bullet which they have brought back. Awesome bullet. I'd rank it right up there with the Nosler Partition.

Beg to differ that the "Interlock" is any where close to a partition in toughness and performance on game. Especially when using on large game for the caliber such as a 22cal for deer
