Black Hills Ammunition

Black Hills is a popular and growing ammunition company based out of Rapid City, South Dakota. Located just miles from the famous Black Hills National Forest, the company gets its character and spirit from the rich history of the region, creating ammunition that can be trusted for hunting, self defense, and target shooting.

They not only make cartridges for modern firearms, such as AR-style rifles, they also create ammunition for classic revolvers and lever-action guns. No matter what, they are always creating superior ammo that is built with the highest level of dedication and consistency.

Black Hills has a reputation for combining the best possible components to create a cartridge that is reliable, accurate, and effective. Their product line includes brand-new options for rifles and handguns, and they also have remanufactured bullets, which are created for high-volume shooters who need rounds for hours upon hours of training. Their remanufactured options deliver value without sacrificing quality.

As an example of the excellence and reliability of Black Hills ammunition, the company’s products are selected by numerous firearms manufacturers for testing their rifles and handguns. Manufacturers that use Black Hills ammunition for testing include Browning, Armalite, Marlin, Mossberg, Rock River Arms, Savage, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson and Springfield. If these companies can rely on Black Hills ammo for consistency and reliability in their product testing, you can certainly count on them for target shooting, hunting, and self defense.

One of Black Hills’ premier products is the line of “Black Hills Gold” ammunition. These cartridges deliver outstanding internal, external, and terminal ballistics, making them especially popular for trophy hunting. This line is available in many cartridges, including .243 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, and .308 Winchester.

It seems only appropriate the Black Hills would offer a line of ammunition called “Authentic Cowboy Action.” These tough and rugged cartridges deliver superior power and reliability to a wide range of revolvers, allowing modern shooters to enjoy the thumping power of vintage handguns. Rounds made in “Authentic Cowboy Action” include .38 Long Colt, .44 Colt, and .357 Magnum.

    This is an update of my review posted on 12/29/2018 in regard to my observation then that "the only detectable lead was that which hit the targets." I recently shot another 50 rounds of this ammo with the same revolver. This time, I ended up with obvious lead residue on the face of the cylinder and the face of the forcing cone as well as a heavy build-up between the forcing cone and the underside of the top strap. I got it off of the cylinder by soaking and rubbing with Hoppe's No. 9 Gun Bore Cleaner. The lead in the frame was harder to deal with that way, but more soaking and rubbing with Kroil Penetrating Oil removed it all. I saw no problem with lead fouling in the barrel. If there was any, it came out with normal bore-brush cleaning.

    Great cartridge for my ‘51 Navy Snubnose with the .45 conversion cylinder both from Taylor’s & Co. I find that .45 Colt rounds are just a hair to long and these Scholfield rounds while a little short in the cylinder fire beautifully and the quality of Black Hills Ammo factory seconds or not can’t be beat. Thank you ATG for the quick shipping on this hard to find ammo!
