Ammo: Same Brand, Same Bullet, Every Shot hornadywhitetail

With the money you save by using a bore sight, you can now use to purchase higher grade ammo (perhaps Hornady). If you’re really trying to get dialed in like a sniper, match grade ammo will make a difference.

Whether you upgrade your ammo or not, it’s imperative that you sight in with the same exact ammo you plan to hunt with.

Even more importantly: Don’t just grab an assortment of old leftover rounds while you are sighting in. Different weights and manufactures (even different lines within a single manufacturer) will all fly a little differently.

The key is that you minimize variables, especially when sighting in your rifle. Lots of folks want to minimize their costs by using remnant ammo. Bad idea.
