Team Hornady® Wins 2020 Sniper’s Unknown Challenge

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates team members Sean Murphy and Greg Hamilton on their performance at the 2020 Sniper’s Unknown Challenge, October 24-25, in Barnwell, South Carolina.

Hamilton and Murphy took first place at the Sniper’s Unknown Challenge shooting Hornady 6mm 110 gr. A-TIP™ Match bullets in their rifles and Hornady 9mm 125 gr. HAP® bullets in their pistols.

“At this event, we were able to run similar rifles, which allowed us both to load the 110 gr. A-TIP’s” said Murphy. “Having confidence in knowing that our bullets went where we wanted them to, was key to our performance and success” Murphy added.

The Sniper’s Unknown Challenge required teams to locate, range and engage targets on the clock. There were 46 teams from around the country with a healthy mix of military and civilian competitors.

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.

Proudly manufacturing products that are made in the USA, Hornady® Manufacturing is a world leader in bullet, ammunition, reloading tool, accessory and security product design and manufacturing.
