    Does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
    Zeroed my AR for 50yrds which is perfect for pig hunting in the brush and tall grass of Florida. Took a pig at 60 yards as it sprinted away. Hit him between the shoulders and devastated the spine for a quick clean kill. Tight groups, good performance could ask for better. Cost more but you get what you pay for.

    Reliable and Consistent from my AR in 7.62×39
    I bought a box of this ammo to set a baseline for hand loading the Hornady SST for my Stoner AR upper. The rounds fed reliably from a 10 round mag and averaged 2295fps with an SD of 8.6. Much better than some of the other (cheaper) brands. One thing I didn’t like was they have small rifle primer pockets instead of large so I’ll have to keep the brass separate from others.

    It does everything
    There was little information for the use of the 7.62×39 as far as a deer rifle other than this kind of a review. Few hunters want to use an SKS or AK type rifle for hunting. I purchased a CZ-527 and installed a Bushnell 4×16 AO scope for coyote hunting. No other pro outdoor writer has written much on the subject. This is the prelude for the first. The Hornady Black ammo made my CZ incredibly accurate. The surprise was the effectiveness. My 150th and 151st lifetime deer harvest fell instantly to this ammunition. A 75 yard frontal chest shot and a 45 yard high lung shot There was no meat loss at all. The season isn’t over and I have 4 more tags.

    Great Ammo!
    I have shot a couple of boxes of this through my Radical Firearms AR upper in 7.62X39. Consistently produced groups from 0.9 to 1 inch at 100 yrds. Have made a number of 1-shot kills on whitetails with this bullet in the 6.8 SPC, so I expect this SST will perform with similar results in the 7.62X39 at reasonable ranges.

    Great quality ammo/ blazing fast shipping
    I wanted to use this in my CMMG MK47 Mutant. I expect to see pretty good groups. Shipped an hour after I placed order.
