Hornady® Joins with Leupold & Stevens and Nosler to Support Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation

Grand Island, NE - Hornady® has joined with two other legendary, family-owned American companies again this year to support the common goal of protecting and advancing the shooting and hunting sports.

Industry leaders, Hornady, Leupold & Stevens and Nosler have combined for a prize package to be auctioned at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation’s (CSF) 29th Annual Banquet & Auction on Wednesday, Sept. 5, in Washington, D.C.

Last year, the American Families Rifle Package generated $25,000 for CSF, a nonprofit organization that works with Congress, governors and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, fishing, recreational shooting and trapping.

The prize package consists of a Nosler Model 48 Long Range Carbon™ rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC, topped with a Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x44mm with the Twilight HD Light Management System and 200 rounds of Hornady® Precision Hunter® 6.5 PRC 143 gr ELD-X® ammunition.
