A-Tip™ Match Bullets Shot by 6 of Top 10 at PRS Finale

Grand Island, NE — How do you prove that you’ve created the ultimate low-drag, high-performance match bullet? In the case of A-Tip™ Match from Hornady®, the numbers speak for themselves.

Six of the top 10 spots in the Open Division of the Precision Rifle Series points race were filled by competitors who shot A-Tip™ bullets at the PRS Finale on Nov. 15-17 in Finger, TN.

They include Clay Blackketter, who finished in first place; David Preston, third; Jake Vibbert, fifth; Tate Streater, sixth; Jonathan Berry, ninth; and Robert Brantley, 10th.

The A-Tip™ Match bullet was created for competitions just like the PRS, which tests competitors’ precision shooting ability over a variety of distances, wind conditions and shooting positions.

A-Tip™ is the result of years of research and testing by the Hornady® Ballistic Development Group, combined with advanced manufacturing processes and quality control measures.

“We could talk all day long about what a breakthrough A-Tip™ is, but the performance of these six competitors has said it better than we ever could,” said Hornady® Vice President Jason Hornady.

Introduced in mid-2019, A-Tip™ bullets feature an aluminum tip that’s precision machined and longer than polymer tips. That moves the center of gravity and enhances inflight stability, resulting in tighter groups and reduced drag variability. In addition, A-Tip™ bullets are sequentially packaged for the ultimate in consistent performance.

“They shoot … where I put them,” said Blackketter, who won the Open Division of the PRS Finale, as well as the overall points race. “They hit a homerun, absolutely.”
