on the hornady website it show the 75gr.BTHPM bullet without the crimp/can. item 2279 .224 22 cal

Ive been told that the hornady/Black Hills 75gr. has the can. for bullet set back!

Why doesnt Hornady show this on the web site

The round that they show on Hornady's website is 223 REM 75 GR TAP - FPD. Item # is 80268. I Just shot some yesterday. It does have cannelure.

I Just looked at this thread again and realized that I totally didn't answer your question. I was thinking ammo, and you were talking Hornady's bullets. I was hoping that the Black Hills has a cannelure also, cause you can't find Hornady anywhere. Maybe they don't sell the cannelured ones to the public and there is a deal on the side between Hornady and Black Hills.

So does anyone know if the Black Hills 75gr. BTHP have cannelure? I know the sierra one's don't.

Looks like BH 75 gr. does have cannelure, but I still wonder if you can get cannelured 75 gr. Hornady bullets for reloads.

If you read thru these, you will see. (referring to BH)

The BH load in 75gr has a cannalure. The hornady 75gr(talking just the bullet not a completed round here) as made by hornady does not have a cannalure, BH specs the bullet for the load with a cannalure and so thats wha hornady makes for them. If yer looking for the Hornady 75gr BTHP as a component for re-loading, you will not find it with a cannalure.

We are talking Bullet only? No Loaded ammo!

I have lots of Black Hills 75gr BTHP w/ cannelure!

Matter of Fact I use my hammer to make sure! the hammer wouldnt do the job at all just made my arm swore! used vise grips !! YUCKbut it has a cannelure like FOREST TOLD ME!!! Thanks Buddy

I have unloaded several M193,SS109/M855 And by Far BH 75 gr. was crimp to the max!! That bullet aint going back !


If I get me a 18 inch spr type upper or varmint I might start reloading for the 223 and would love this type of bullet to use Hornady75! Perfect for a auto/semiauto!
