Be Safe,
So true. I have some friends who have kicked them to the curb. All are shooting Hornady and aren't going back.
I'm close to doing the same.

I've called them too, got the same response. I understand of being backlogged, but somewhere you should be able to find some of their products.

I can see how customers might try other options when they can’t get the Noslers (or whatever) they want, and might decide the new stuff works well enough to stick with. Not sure I get why people get mad at companies that are backed up on orders though. I certainly wouldn’t want them to cut corners to increase production, nor would I expect them to add expensive manufacturing capacity to address a temporary situation. As with the other component shortages, prevention is the best cure. Don’t let yourself get caught short again.

I believe I have some of those 150s in my stash. Now that I have my M70 EW sorted out, I’ll have to give them a try.

Nicely done on the cow BW.

The .308 is such an easy button when it comes to getting an accurate load, as well as performance in the field. I know lots of guys who scoff at it but it has worked well for me and is quite easy to shoot precisely. Sounds like your load performed great.

Congrats!

Thanks MS!

Yeah the 308/150 is tough to beat unless you step up to a much larger case, more recoil, and heavier gun. I'll pass on all three grin

The 308 is an e-zee one for me.

Bwinters, somewhat off topic, but how does a 150 grain Partition perform for you? I'm thinking of running them with Varget in a 300 RSAUM... (I figure the NP will never go away... whereas E-tips might morph into the next great idea...)

I really don't know - my 308 hates them - 2-3" groups. So - I've never used them on anything. It's not fond of 165s either but groups shrink to 1.5-2 inches.

I've never seen the why of the 150 NP - it's a squatty little, low BC/SD bullet. I get a mono in 150 gr's, but if I wanted more than a CC 150 and didn't want a mono I'd go with a 165 in a Partition or whatever.

I’d agree with that. I’m sure they have a purpose in a 300 Savage or something but not much.

Interesting... I checked the ammo stash and I have a box of factory 165 NP for the 300 RSAUM... and 140 grain e-tip for the 280...

I tried them for a deer load in both 30-06 and 308. No Beuno on either.
