Just looking on line and found Hornady Black ammo??? Any different from the regular Hornady stuff? Anyone ever used it?

Thank you,

Marketing angle. I have not used it but what specs I could find on it looks like they're the same.

i have to guess - but the "black" ammo is the same idea as their ZMAX - put a snazzy box on some proven AR friendly loads, and market the hell out of it - maybe even sell it a smiggen cheaper like the zmax stuff. havent seen any on the shelf to know yet.

I went to the Wheeling, WV Cabelas store yesterday to buy some 450BM ammo for my upcoming SC hog hunt. All they had in stock was the 450BM Hornady Black ammunition. I purchased a box and when I brought it home I noticed the ballistic stats are exactly the same as the Hornady Custom brown box ammo I had shot previously. All in all I'd say there's no difference but the fancy box with the Gadsden Flag snake on it.

Around here it's $5 or $10 a box cheaper depending on which shop I go to.
