    Sure looks "Hornady-ish" to me.

    I have bought blemished pistol bullets from Midway and another distributor and they all have been Hornadys.

    If it was Hornady, it would be a 154, or a 139, not a 150. It's strange that midway won't say who makes the blemed bullets.

    I know! I've been told that it might be a Hornady, but no one can definitively state that. Drives me crazy :D

    It does perform very well on deer and at the range, too. I'm going to get another few hundred; I sure do wish I knew who made them, though.

    I thought they were all made by the Blem Bullet Company in Blem, PA.

    I purchased a few hundred of the blemished bullets in various calibers for stock recently.
    I loaded some 243's with the 100gr flat base SP and found that the cannelures varied in height from the base, more than a .060-.080 on some.
    Not a big deal because I don't use the crimp.
    I also think most are Hornady's.

    i have bought several batches of blem bullets from midway. just go to their website, and compare the bullet you bought (and original price) and you will be able to figure it out. (go to brass and bullets, rifle bullets, 7 mm, and whatever weight class it is in. match the bullet pic, and retail price to the original price{not the discounted price} to the webpage) i have been able to every time. it really is not all that hard. just takes a little patience.

    Despite what Midway gives as reasons for a blem, maybe a bullet 4 grains outa orig weight spec along with other issues constitutes a blem, or these bullets were contract made at an original 150 grain spec, and are truly cosmetic blems. If that ain't Hornady, then some other "major manufacturer" is making an exact copy of that spire point and ogive.

    I did that last year when I bought a metric butt-load of 'em :D. I was never able to find that exact bullet anywhere on Midway's site, or anywhere else, for that matter.

    It still bugs me, but I'll get over it.
