Black Hills has a reputation for long-range accuracy and the new .308 178 Gr. A-MAX® load takes it a step further. With a true ballistic coefficient of .495 this sleek, tipped design bullet delivers all the precision your long-range tactical or competition rifle is capable of providing. As a police sniper round, it combines extreme precision with a bullet design that provides quick, reliable expansion and performance with limited penetration (vs traditional BTHP designs) for increased officer and public safety.
Who says you can’t have match accuracy in a hunting or defense load? The Black Hills .308 150 grain SST™ combines minute of angle accuracy with a tough constructed bullet suitable for all but the largest North American game. This premium bullet opens up immediately upon impact to a diameter of over .60 caliber, creating a resultant wound channel 8″ in diameter, but reliably retains approximately 75% of its weight and penetrates to 18″. When you are looking for a flat shooting, accurate and powerful load for your deer rifle or for your semi auto duty/defense rifle, this load has what it takes.
Black Hills Ammunition introduced the 50 grain TSX last year and it has been an overwhelming success as a premium “barrier blind”defense and duty load but some folks really wanted something heavier. We listen to what our customers want. The Optimized™ 5.56mm 62 Gr. TSX load is designed for use in all rifles with a twist rate of 1/9” and faster, including short-barreled rifles. It is flash suppressed for use in low light situations. This load opens up immediately upon impact to over 50 caliber and penetrates to 20” in ballistic gel tissue simulant, while creating a wound channel over 5” in diameter. This 5.56mm ammunition is loaded to pressures higher than commercial .223 ammunition in order to provide maximum performance and should be used only in suitably chambered firearms.
