Team Hornady® Shooters Murphy and Hamilton Win Burris Team Challenge

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates team members Sean Murphy and Greg Hamilton on winning the Burris Optics Team Challenge, June 25-28 in Douglas, WY.

Murphy and Hamilton combined efforts and relied on Hornady bullets to take them to the top. Murphy used Hornady 6mm 110 gr. A-TIP™ Match bullets and Hamilton used Hornady 22 Cal. 75 gr. ELD® Match bullets.

Both Hamilton and Murphy used 9mm 125 gr. HAP® bullets in their pistols.

“Hornady A-TIP and ELD Match bullets performed flawlessly, leaving no doubt as to whether a target was hit for score” said Murphy. “Our very high hit ratio can attest to the consistency and performance capable with Hornady bullets” Murphy added.

A-Tip™ Match 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.

ELD® Match bullets are technologically advanced, enhanced accuracy bullets featuring Heat Shield® tips with the perfect meplat combined with numerous design features that deliver the highest-in-class ballistic coefficients, superior accuracy and extreme consistency from bullet to bullet, lot to lot.

This match was an extreme test of practical field shooting of rifles, carbines and pistols. Two-man teams were required to navigate rugged desert/mountainous terrain, locate, range and engage challenging rifle targets from compromised shooting positions.
