Wondering if there are any factory match offering that aren’t insanely expensive.

No idea how it shoots as I've never used HSM but they make ammo loaded with 95gr VLD. It's regularly found around $25-26 per box on Ammoseek. Other than that its Copper creek or Clay Blacketter's ammo.

I bought a .243 here when it was the old site that came with lots of Copper Creek loaded with 115 DTACs. The setup shoots lights out with the CC. Ive lazied out and ran some other CC .243 stuff through my DTA and same great results. I usually handload but man the CC stuff is tight. not a bargain but worth the money.

This is why I got into reloading. I know that it consumes a lot of time, but with something like a RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme kit, you make your money back by the 750th round loaded. I know it's not the answer you're looking for, but perhaps it's worth considering.

I'm very lucky in that my .243 shoots the cheaper 100gr Winchester stuff into sub-MOA at hunting ranges. The expensive Nosler stuff is just over MOA, and the Hornady Superformance stuff patterns like 00buck.

My rig (wife's) is purely for hunting, so there is no real volume of fire going through it.

I have a load with H414 & 95vld’s that shoots lights out was just going to try a few good factory options if they were out there. This rifle is actually the reason I started reloading. Everything I tried factory was 1.5-2.5” so I worked up a load that will stay sub.5 and never looked back. But recently testing some factory 6.5 ammo had me wondering.
