    I've got to send in my form by the 14th of Feb and can't decide which to get. I only load 45ACP, 223, and 7.62X39. I plan on loading 308 for a future rifle purchase. Wondering what most of you picked that seemed to be the best deal. Thanks. Art

    I went with the 7mm 139's. I shoot a lot of 280, so it made sense. If you get the 30 cal, I would take into consideration the fact that they only offer 150 grain bullets, which take a slower spin barrel than the normal 1-12" twist rate. 1 in 12 twist is perfect for the 165-168 grain. Using the Greenhill formula, the .308 bullets they offer work best out of a barrel with a 1 - 13.5 twist for velocities under 2750, and a 1 in 15 for velocities over 2800.
    The 270 and 7mm ammo seemed the best deal for "stock" rifle barrels.

    Used the coupon with the new die set to get some in .223 for the AR. Got confirmation from Hornady; but haven't seen the pills yet.

    I ordered the 500 free .45 185 Gr SWC ENC mid Dec. 09. Yesterday I called to check on the order, as I received a response to my email inquiry about the order, that said to call them for a substitute. Kathy the sales rep was great and I should be getting 200 GR JHPs this week instead.

    Hornady customer service so far with other parts ordered has been great to deal with. If ordering parts (like another primer arm, etc) they will love you and it saves time if you provide the part number, found in your manual.

    I sent in my form early January requesting the 150gr .308 FMJ-BT bullets. I haven't heard/seen anything yet.

    I got .45 XTPs for all of my rebates, made sense to get the most expensive bullet you reload for. I got 1,200 rounds of it coming my way.
