With an ever-increasing selection of exotic-design bullets from which to choose, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the old-school options that not only represent a tremendous value, but have been extensively field tested, too. Such is the case with Speer’s Hot-Cor bullets. The flat-base, exposed-lead projectiles offer upward of 85 percent weight retention and exceptional accuracy. Additionally, as they sell for $27 per 100-count box (midwayusa.com), one can afford to spend considerable time at the range honing his or her marksmanship skills without breaking the bank. Then, come fall, you’ll be prepared for that shot of a lifetime—with the exact bullet you’ve practiced with. Below is a meat-and-potatoes-type .270 Win. load that’ll work for the majority of your hunting needs.
