My vote goes to Hornady but Truth be told, Federal, Remington and Winchester ammo has always served me quite well too.

federal....its cheap, i handload, and i dont need anything expensive to get the brass!!!

Well, best and favorite aren't really the same thing, but......i voted Hornady, i love the ammo and it is really good. For cheap (more used) ammo, federal.

I voted Hornady, but I'm sure its going to be a race between Hornady and Federal.:)

Depends on what you mean by best, for me it's accuracy. Federal and Black Hills match ammo is hard to beat. In my hungting loads Hornady with SST bullets are best in my 7x57, .308, and multiple 30-06's.

Federal ranges from inexpensive American Eagle, Lake City, low end & premium Hunting as well as the infamous Gold Medal Match ammo...I'd say they are king of the hill.

My vote goes to Federal.

Match ammo, great hunting ammo, plinking ammo, and a great offering of calibers.

I voted for federal for the same reasons as others. They offer cheap ammo, hunting ammo, match ammo, and have a variety of calibers and it is all pretty good.

infamous Gold Medal Match ammo

What makes it infamous?

Accurate, consistant, reliable, easily available, and last but not least, cheap...What else would you want?

Anything from Federal, Hornady, or Black Hills. Depending on the application one of the three will be on top, but in my experience the best will usually come from one of the three.

Excluding Lapua at least.

Federal for me.

blackhills if money isn't a problem.

winchester has been giving me issues lately in 5.56 the q3131 to be exact.

I have never had issues with modern umc/remington ammo.

I bought my dad a box of Winchester Super X 180 grain .308 power points, they've got good ballistics according to the charts on the winchester site, should be a good round for large game. Wal-Mart has great prices on this stuff, by the way.:)

I vote Hornady. They produce a very high quality product. The cases they use (in my opinion) are better than Federal. They also offer a wide range of specialty loads like 7.5 Swiss, 7.7 Jap, and the line of TAP ammo.

wait someone actually voted wolf?
i picked hornady, great ammo and they make milsurp calibers that are hard to find otherwise. always thought federal was overrated, only fired there 12ga and .22, people glorify federal bulk packs but i get a lot of ftfs from them

I like Winchester to hunt with, but i feed my ARs wolf ( its cheap )

The best brand is the one that is most accurate and does the job in your rifle. So in that, there is no "best" brand.

But then that is just my opinion, for what it's worth. ;)
