Default Update#1 Problems Hornady brand 17 HMR

Howdy All,

Started to shoot a new lot # (K27Q27) of Hornady brand 17 HMR. It had me thinking that maybe my barrel finally wore out. Shot 5 time at a squirrel at 60 yards and missed all 5 times. Off a table and bi-pod I can usually work just with the heads at that distance. Some misses were 8" or so!! Pulled out an old box from a different lot number and went back to taking heads. No cleaning the barrel between ammo change!

I have contacted Hornady and they are willing to shoot a box if I will send it to them. Just sent a reply that I would, if they pay for the shipping and Hazmat fees. Also will hit the range next week to produce two targets to send to them. One with the new crap and one from an old lot # that shoots good.

Just thought I would check here to see of anyone else is experiencing the same problems.


Update #1
Hornady was very pleasant to deal with!! Was told not to send one box but the whole shipment of two cases, shipping paid by them. Package went out yesterday! So far so good!
