Hornady® Shooter Uses A-Tip™ Bullets to Win PRS Qualifier

Grand Island, NE - Team Hornady shooter Jake Vibbert took first place at the Defy the Distance Match – 7th PRS Pro Series Qualifier, August 17-18, 2019 in Three Forks, Montana.

Vibbert took first place using Hornady 6mm 110gr. A-Tip™ Match bullets. “The 6mm A-Tip has been ultra-consistent for me this year” said Vibbert. “It’s the best 6mm bullet on the market, period!” Vibbert 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.

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.
