Looks like mostly Wolf and some brand of reloads I have never heard of called "Minuteman USA"?
The ads for the Minuteman ammo are very deceptive in my opinion since they put the name of the projective manufacturer (Hornady, Nosler, etc.) big and in full color, sometimes without identifying the minuteman company who is actually assembling these loads.

Has anyone here ever actually shot this Minuteman ammo?
Examples:


Here is something they call 64gr TAP Soft Point BT Pretty sure TAP is a trademark of Hornady and this stuff AIN'T IT.

I had no idea Nosler sold their precision .308 match ammo loaded in Winchester cases and packed in ammo cans, 350 rounds for $300 . . .  but here it is under the NOSLER BRAND
with a pic to further confuse you:


I don't see any deals there that are better than I can find elsewhere, including the EE here on ARF.

Anyone that knows ammo can spend five minutes up there and extend the list of shady stuff I started here.
Their deceptive marketing leads me to reject them as a vendor outright.

Looks like a site selling their reloads and using confusing labels? I don't know.. that's my take. Google search told me they went under once... I do not know if it's the same people.

I agree with the comments on the misleading labeling.....on the other hand it depends on how it actually
shoots.   If they have good loading machine and are using quality components they might
have good ammo......I'm going to order some and test it through my service rifles (RRA and WOA).
If the quality is as good as the Hornady or BH loaded ammo then it's a reasonably priced ammo.
The price is slightly better than the BH reman match.   But it all depends on quality........
the annealing on the brass in the one photo makes it look like Lake City....they're using good
projectiles.....if the powder and primers are up to par it should shoot well.   We'll see
