Do they? Seems like an awful good idea to me. Save shooters from trying to find what their gun likes.

Wilson has their own brand of ammo now.

That's like saying the 1911 manufactures should use the same blueprint...then we wouldn't have so much issues with parts not fitting and working correctly. :D

I was thinking more along the lines of rifle ammo...for accuracy. Love to see say Hornaday and Savage get together or something.

Remington & Winchester make rifle ammo, been doing so for years. So not sure what you're meaning...am I missing something? Wouldn't be the first time.

But is their ammo optimized for their firearms?

I would think that Remington's rifle chambers and their ammo are match in dimensions...but probably have a +/- tolerance. UGH!

Stan Chen gets my vote, great gun builder, and a good friend.

http://store.chencustom.com/

Every round is chember checked in a SAAMI minumum guage before packaging, the level of quality control is un-heard of in the industry, I have seen it first hand.

Some of the best ammo available in .45ACP, Stan builds a REALLY nice gun as well as some great ammo. Great options in the 45ACP, match and self defense ammo. His 230 Ball Match loads are scary accurate, his 185 Nosler match loads are basicly the Marine Corp pistol team's load now available for public consumpton. His 5.56 options are pretty amazing as well... nothing is done with out serious thought and consideration to the end product, all the loads are designed with a purpose and tested then re-tested. The 308 rocks...I have 2 rifles that shoot it under 1/2MOA out to 600M. His 9mm should be available here in near future and S&W's Julie Golob has been winning a few matches with his ammo for over a year now. Got a 4th of July sale happening as we speak on 45ACP 185 Barnes self defense ammo...FYI.

Best
Mark

...and a scope too. I just think it would be nice to be able to go out and buy a rifle, ammo, and scope ready to rock and know that xxx with xxx with xxx will shoot xxx and this is how you do it. Kinda. On one hand, people should have to learn and try and experiment, etc., and those package deals end up being $$$ and only the guys with more money than common sense have them. How does that happen anyway?

Greybull Precision does it I believe, but I'd have to sell one of my vehicles to buy it...
