I just watched the promotional video about the new Match bullets.
I've been reloading my own bullets for a short time now, I started out using Hornady Bullets and Hornady reloading setup and I've been so satisfied with the results at the range I have no desire to change. I shoot 300 Win Mag with Hornady Match 168 gr BTHP and 243 Win with the 105 gr A-MAX and the 105 gr Match. I can't wait to get some of the new bullets to give them a try, I know I'm going to be pleased. I also really like the fact that Hornady bullets are about half the cost of other bullets, as far as I'm concerned can't be any better then Hornady's.
My last trip to the range was a few days ago to set up my new scope on my 243 Win but I also took my 300 Win Mag along (both Savage rifles). Once I was finished with the 243 (which didn't work out to well, the scope was damaged and couldn't be zeroed), I did a little shooting with the 300 Win Mag. To get to the point I was using Hornady 168 gr Match BTHP at 200 yards, my last group of six shots put 4 in a one inch bullseye and two about one quarter inch outside the bullseye. So if I'm getting these results with the old Match bullets I can't wait to see how I'll do with the new improved Match bullets.
I remember again how it feels to be a kid waiting for Christmas to get that new toy.
Thanks Hornady for improving on already excellent quality and for helping me DESTROY THAT NASTY BULLSEYE.

I wish I'd taken a photo of the target, (next time, maybe a video).
