308 WIN HORNADY MATCH 178 GRAIN BTHP (200 ROUNDS)There can be only one Ammo Man: us. We’re kind of like Highlander in that regard, except with ammo instead of swords. But thanks to Hornady’s Match label 308 Win ammunition, anyone has the ability to become an Accuracy Man. Or an Accuracy Woman! Accuracy is gender neutral.
But enough stupid introductory text. This cartridge is designed for long-range target shooting – both recreational and competitive – and it achieves a marksman’s goals with flying colors thanks to the power of Hornady’s own 178 grain boat tail hollow point match bullet. The bullet’s high mass, low drag, and rotationally stable concentric copper jacket and form-fitted lead core all account for its high 0.530 G1 ballistic coefficient. If you’re stretching it all the way out to 500 yards, you can still anticipate a trajectory which doesn’t arch higher than ~22.1” (assuming 1.5” sight height, and the 24” barrel the bullet needs in order to exhibit its advertised 2,600 fps muzzle velocity).
Word to the wise: this isn’t hunting ammunition. The opening in the BTHP’s tip is only there because Hornady poured molten lead into the jacket to create a uniformly distributed core. The bullet offers a precise trajectory, albeit not one that ends in terminal expansion.
Hornady’s bullets aren’t their only consistent components. Every round in this box is loaded with functionally identical reloadable brass cases, Boxer primers and propellant, so no surprises are in store each time you squeeze the trig. And don’t forget: there is only one Ammo Man because no other company is cool enough to offer free shipping on this case of Nebraska-made 308 match ammo.
