When you want to do your fanciest shooting, who do you want making your ammo? Black Hills – that’s who. The South Dakotan manufacturer is trusted by every single branch of the United States Armed Forces, whose snipers frequently favor Black Hills’ best.

This is indeed a sniper’s 7.62x51 cartridge, loaded with a 168 grain match-grade hollow point boat tail bullet. The bullet’s exterior geometry is extremely streamlined, with a sharp meplat, sleek shank, and ballistically efficient tapered base. It generates the least possible in-flight drag in order to hug a flatter trajectory, resist getting blown off-course by cross winds, and wallop its target with more energy downrange.

It is important not to mistake an HPBT for a bullet that expands inside of its target. The HPBT’s terminal performance is in fact more like that of an FMJ. The opening in its tip is only there because the HPBT’s core is poured into place while the lead is still molten. This is why the HPBT’s core is so evenly distributed, hence its superb balance and in-flight stability.

Black Hills only loads match-grade propellant, Boxer primers and new brass cases when they assemble this sharpshooter’s ammo. Every round was laboriously inspected by hand before it was boxed alongside its 19 interchangeable brothers and sisters.
