Hornady Custom-grade ammunition provides shooters and hunters custom grade ammunition but in a factory offering. Each cartridge is loaded to ensure optimal pressure, velocity and consistency, from lot to lot. Each round is built to the tightest tolerances for peak performance rivaling and sometimes surpassing handloads in many guns. Much of the brass is made by Hornady, the rest carefully selected for reliable feeding, corrosion resistance, hardness and the ability to withstand maximum chamber pressure. Like the powder, each primer is carefully matched to individual loads, and specially selected for their ability to quickly, completely and reliably ignite the powder charge. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
The Classic 218 Bee is now available in loaded ammunition from Hornady. Loaded with the 45 Grain Hollow Point this bullet has a streamlined design for ultra flat trajectory. A match grade jacket design provides maximum accuracy at all ranges. Explosive expansion even at low velocities maximizes the perofrmance on varmints and small game. The nose of the bullet is flat so this can be safely loaded in tubular magazines.
