Hornady® Shooters Murphy and Hamilton Excel at Vortex Team Sniper Challenge

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates sponsored shooters Sean Murphy and Greg Hamilton on their performance at the Vortex Team Sniper Challenge, February 25-27, 2022, in Ellerbe, North Carolina.

Murphy and Hamilton took first place running in the mechanized division using A-TIP® Match bullets in their rifles and 9mm 125 gr. HAP® bullets in their pistols.

"The Vortex Team Sniper Challenge is not an easy match,” said Murphy. “With unknown shooting challenges, having high-performance ammunition loaded with Hornady bullets and brass provided the confidence and capability to earn points on the shots we made." 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.

Modeled after the legendary XTP® bullet design, HAP® bullets are further refined into the perfect competition projectile. While XTP® bullets use serrations to aid in controlled expansion and terminal performance, we have eliminated these from HAP® bullets, creating a sleek and balanced projectile with a protected nose that aids in consistent and reliable feeding in auto loading pistols. Bullet jackets, featuring industry leading concentricity combined with precision swaged cores, deliver the very best in accuracy and performance.
