Went out to the range today to see what off the shelf ammo my rifle preferred.

1. Federal non-typical 140gr
(This is what I hunted with last season)

Shot 4 groups of 5

Averaged .9in

2. Hornady American whitetail 129gr

Shot 4 groups of 5

Averaged 1.2in

3. Hornady precision hunter 143gr

Shot 4 groups of 5

Averaged .7in

4. Hornady black 140gr

Shot 4 groups of 5

Averaged .8

Looks like I'll be hunting with precision hunter next year.

Can't post photos until tomorrow at work

Hornady continues to impress, both in bullets and ammo.

I too am a huge hornady fan. Not so much as in I think they r the best in any one particular way but their ammo, bullets and cases gave all been great value, accuracy and quality for the cost.

Well price wise. The non-typical was sub moa for 16.99 which was surprising.

The Hornady hunter was 32.99 but shot the best. once I get familiar with it and get some dope will probably target with Hornady black at I think 18 a box

Stick with the ELDX for hunting, Hornady Black for practice.

Do they both shoot to or close to the same POI?

This is the precision hunter groups

Hornady black did have point of impact so that's a good thing.

Also all measuring was done with a tape measure to the best of my ability

The Savage 11 I bought for my boys in 6.5 CM really likes the Hornady 143 ELD-X ammo as well. Hoping the left hand Ruger Predator I have on layaway will like it too...although at some point I will try Chadís ammo to see if any improvement can be realized.
