HSM ammunition
#1
Has anyone tried HSM ammunition? My understanding is that it is Cabelas brand.

I picked up a box of s&w 500 at the flea market today. The guy says he has 200 more rounds.

The only thing I found was it is remanufactored using win. brass and berger bullets. There are some great reviews and some really bad ones. From the little I saw I would shy away from the .223. JMO YMMV From Cabelas: HSM teamed with Berger to create an exclusive line of rifle ammunition loaded with Berger VLD hunting bullets which were previously only available to handloaders. These bullets are engineered to penetrate between 2" and 3" before expansion begins. Then the expansion process fragments the bullets. Shedding 40% to 85% of their weight as shrapnel into surrounding tissue and organs results in a devastating wound cavity. Because the vast majority of the bullet's energy is expended inside the target animal, quick and humane kills are ensured. These rounds are made with Winchester brass, match-grade primers and new powders that are not affected by temperatures and altitude. Premium components result in consistent performance and match-grade accuracy. Per 20.

That is correct, it is NOT made my Cabella's. HSM stands for Hunting Shack Munitions. They've been making custom ammunition for a long time. They're a company that actually loads some of the bullets that can be "hard to find" in terms of ammo if you don't reload. My experience with them has been that some rifles can be picky about their ammunition. The rifles that do like their loads will shoot lights out with them. It pretty much means that they have good quality control and consistency in their loading methods, but some firearms will not like their ammunition. About a year ago I posted up a video shooting my buddy's DTA SRS, and we were using HSM ammunition. The SD's and ES on the ammunition had to have been single digits. At 535 yards we shot several groups that were 2" or a little smaller. I haven't read any online reviews lately, but for the most part I've never heard people complain much about their ammunition besides that they didn't make a load that shot particularly well in someone's rifle. For the most part, they're ammunition is very good quality for the price.
