Hornady® Receives NRA Award for Ammunition of the Year

Grand Island, NE - Hornady® Manufacturing Company received the National Rifle Association Publications Golden Bullseye Award for Ammunition Product of the Year on May 4 during the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas.

Hornady received the award for its 5.56 NATO 75 gr. InterLock HD SBR ammunition.

The Golden Bullseye Awards honor the finest products available in shooting sports. Winners are chosen by a committee of NRA Publications editors and staff with more than a century of combined experience in the firearms industry.

Award-winning products must be recent introductions and available to consumers; feature innovative design and function; meet or exceed field reliability expectations; and demonstrate style befitting the firearms industry, as well as good purchase value.

Designed specifically for 10.5- to 11.5-inch short-barreled rifles, 5.56 NATO 75 gr. InterLock® HD SBR™ BLACK uses proprietary propellant technology and a bullet designed with technology from industry-leading Critical Duty® FlexLock® bullets.

The round provides exceptional ammunition performance in suppressed or unsuppressed SBRs, with virtually no flash or residue and dramatically reduced sound signature. It provides uniform velocity and accuracy, and a controllable rate of fire in automatic platforms, while not fouling or overheating suppressors.

“Designed to meet the requirements of the FBI protocol, this round is the optimum choice for 10.5- to 11.5-inch-barreled 5.56 rifles,” said Steve Hornady, president of Hornady Manufacturing. “We’re gratified with the enthusiasm the shooting public has shown for this load and our entire Hornady BLACK® line, and we’re honored by this recognition as Ammunition Product of the Year.”

Founded in 1949, Hornady® Manufacturing Company is a family owned business headquartered in Grand Island, Nebraska. Proudly manufacturing products that are made in the USA, Hornady® Manufacturing is a world leader in bullet, ammunition, reloading tool and accessory design and manufacture.
