Hornady Brings 300 H&H Back!

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.

New Match Ammo for M1 Garand

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have only shot a couple of matches with Garands over the years but it was a ton of fun.  Now Hornady is offering match grade ammo designed for use with the M1 Garand.  They chose powders that should provide long life for the barrel and gas system on these work horse rifles.  After years of either reloading or relying on military surplus ammo, competitors now have another option for good quality ammunition.

Loaded with 168 grain A-Max bullets with a muzzle velocity near 2700 feet per second, this might be pretty good ammo for new match shooters to learn on.  For more information on the M1 Garand and matches check out the Civiliam Marksmanship Program.
