Black Hills Adds 8 New Hunting Loads With Hornady GMX Release

In 2011 Press Releases on February 7, 2011 at 4:27 pm

Black Hills Ammunition is well-known for hand selecting the best available premium components from across the industry to incorporate into their line of performance hunting ammunition. This time they gathered Hornady GMX rifle bullets for use in the Black Hills Gold Line. The new loads include .243 80 gr, .260 Rem 120 gr., 6.5-.284 Norma 120 gr., 270 Win 130 gr., 308 150 gr., 30-06 150 gr., 7mm RM 139 gr., and 300 WM 165 gr.

Black Hills advises that these loadings were selected in order to add the superior external and terminal performance of the plastic-tipped Hornady bullets into their line, while increasing available choices for Black Hills customers. The GMX (Gilding Metal eXpanding) bullets are constructed of gilding metal, the same material long used for bullet jackets. This construction results in a bullet that expands very reliably and nearly immediately upon impact, but typically retains nearly 100% of its weight resulting in deep penetration. These bullets are very accurate, shoot as cleanly as “standard” bullets, and are lead free, and thus suitable for use in areas that restrict use of lead cored bullets.
