I used to shoot a lot of that Black Hills blue box stuff. I always thought it was a fine product. While the POI may be a little different (I doubt much if any, but it is possible) I'd guess it will be just as accurate. I only shot a few boxes of the red box stuff, before I tried the blue box just to save money. It was just as accurate in my guns. I've reloaded that stuff many times since, as it is all LC brass that has already been reamed, and is good brass. From what I read Black Hills gets it's brass from a known source, so it is all a single headstamp, once fired. All of mine was LC.Some other reloaded ammo I bought from Cabela's had a hodgepodge of headstamps, some military, some commercial, and some LC '76'... I know brass doesn't go bad with age, but with brass that old who knows where they got it or how many times it had been reloaded. Kind of made me wonder, in a case as small as .223 the different case capacity can't be great for accuracy.
