Hornady® Shooters Murphy and Hamilton Win Wyoming Tactical Rifle Championship

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates sponsored shooters Sean Murphy and Greg Hamilton on their performance at the Wyoming Tactical Rifle Championship July 8-9, 2022, in Weston, Wyoming.

Murphy used Hornady 6mm 110 gr. A-Tip® Match bullets loaded in his 6mm Creedmoor, while Hamilton ran Hornady 22 Cal. 73 gr. ELD® Match bullets loaded in his 223 Remington.

"The Wyoming Tactical Rifle Championship was incredibly tough with difficult targets, field courses, and a lot of shooting,” said Murphy. “Greg and I shot exceptionally well, winning all four field courses and the team vs. team shoot-off. The accuracy and consistency of Hornady bullets were vital to our success." 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.

The ELD® Match (Extremely Low Drag Match) bullet features the Heat Shield® tip, which resists aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to deliver highest-in-class ballistic coefficients. Its optimum secant ogive and boattail design contribute to superior accuracy and extreme consistency from bullet to bullet.
