Cost is a huge thing for me at this time. This past year has been horrible. However, I would NEVER use inferior ammo when hunting. We all owe it to the game we are after for the most humane kill possible.

The issues with Hunter Supply are well documented. right in the neighborhood of pure junk.


Expanding bullets not for shooting game? Really?


95/5 Tin, I don't think so. Not even close. They are dull grey. Tin in that high a mix is bright silver


 And NOT THAT HARD!!!


They are famous for feeding AirGunners a line. Look elsewhere. A HUGE Shoutout to Nick at NSA! He doesn't cut corners, feed bull, or try to misguide us. A top provider!!!
