Quality of Hornady Black ammunition—? Login/Join

I once saw a passing reference here to the idea that the “Black” line of Hornady ammunition was of poorer quality than other the company's versions. An Internet search found various references to poor results that individuals had with various loads, but nothing about its being loaded to lower quality control standards. Can anyone comment on that rumor?

I’m wrong, I was shooting federal black pack .22lr, not Hornady black.

Interesting. I have never seen Hornady .22LR. Shot a lot of .22 Mag however.

I tried some Hornady Black in my 6.5 Creedmoor while I was waiting for dies and brass to arrive and it performed very well. I’ve talked to others that have used 6.5 Grendel Hornady Black and all were pleased.

Well, that’s because I’m an idiot. I have Federal black pack .22lr, which is not Hornady Black. My apologies.

I shoot it in my .450 Bushmaster and have been completely happy with the results. A few deer may differ though.
