Hornady ammunition will bring the 300 H&H back from the dead for 2009.
The loading will be a 180 grain Hornady InterBond TM bullet. This bonded core bullet will perform well in the 300 H&H. Around the time that the Short Magnum craze took off a few years back the gun manufacturers all dropped the old school 300 H&H. It required a long action, the standard 300 Winchester could equal the H&H with a Medium length action, and of course the new WSM & RSAUM cartridges were able to nearly duplicate the same ballistics from a short (308 length) action.
Non of that has changed, so why in Hornady bringing back this dinosaur? Well, the answer is pretty simple, this caliber was the 300 Magnum for the better part of 40 years when the 300 Winchester arrived on the scene and the H&H continued to be offered by various factory gun makers up to about 2000. Since then it has been purely a custom offering, being offered by gunsmiths everywhere. To make a long story short, there are a lot of guns out there hungry for factory ammo in 300 H&H so Hornady is filling that need.
