Hornady® A-Tip™ Bullets Used to Win Allegheny Sniper Challenge

Grand Island, NE - Hornady® celebrates the win of shooter David Preston at the Allegheny Sniper Challenge in Seneca Rocks, Virginia May 17-19.

Preston won the Allegheny Sniper Challenge using the new Hornady 6mm 110 gr. A-Tip™ Match bullets, “I chose to shoot the A-Tip™ bullets for this match due to their high B.C. and consistency.” said Preston. “Wind is guaranteed at ASC and the A-Tip™ bullets allowed me to make first round impacts on almost all the targets past 1,000 yards” Preston added.

Years of research and testing by the Hornady Ballistic Development Group, combined with advanced manufacturing processes and quality control measures have led to the creation of the ultimate low drag, high performance match bullet. Hornady plans to begin shipment of the new A-Tip bullets to the general consumer market in June of this year.

The most striking visual feature of the A-Tip™ Match bullet is its long, uniform, precision-machined aluminum tip. The longer aluminum tips are machined to be caliber specific and when coupled with highly refined AMP® bullet jackets, aggressive profiles and optimized boattails the result is enhanced drag efficiency across the board.

The materials, design and manufacturing techniques combine for the most consistent and accurate match bullets available. In addition to development projectiles that will shoot well in a variety of chambers, the Ballistic Development Group also designed the A-Tip™ bullets with the right balance between the center of gravity of the projectile versus the center of pressure to minimize in-flight drag variability.

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 bullets, ammunition, reloading tools and security products design and manufacturing.
