Team Hornady® Shooters Excel at Hornady® Precision Rifle Challenge

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates team members, Clay Blackketter, Doug Koenig, Travis Gibson, Dave Preston, and Jonathan Berry on their performance at the Hornady® Precision Rifle Challenge, July 10 - 11, 2020 in Evanston, Wyoming.

Blackketter took first place overall using Hornady 6mm 110 gr. A-Tip™ bullets with teammates Jonathan Berry coming in fourth and Dave Preston in seventh.

Koenig won the Production Division using Hornady 6mm 110 gr. A-Tip™ bullets and Gibson won the Tactical Division using Hornady 30 cal. 168 gr. ELD® Match bullets in his 308 Win.

“Bryan Sikes and George Gardner ran a phenomenal match” said Jason Hornady, vice president. “We can’t thank the sponsors, volunteers and competitors enough. They made this match a huge success. We would also like to thank all the competitors and we would be remiss if we didn’t send a very special thank you to all those that trusted Hornady products during the match!” Hornady 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.
