    If you're talking about the stuff at SGAmmo, the description says that the Hirtenberger is mixed lot, old, delinked, and repackaged, while the Swiss is new production.
    If it was me, I would go with the Swiss.

    Can't go wrong with either one. Maybe leaning toward what Bern and ar said.

    I've seen the Hirtenberger for under 50 cents a round but looks like that's drying up.

    Just noticed I can get 20rd boxes of the Swiss ammo

    I may just get a few boxes and test them
