Hornady® International Shooters Compete at World Championships

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates international shooters on their performance at the International Precision Rifle Federation’s World Championship, August 6-12, 2022, in France.

Lawrence Barnes of Great Britain won the Factory class shooting Hornady® A-Tip® Match bullets in his 6.5 Creedmoor.

Ben McIlwaine individually placed 3rd in Factory class and helped the UK team to score 1st team in Factory class.

Marcus Olsson placed 14th in the Open class and helped the Swedish team to place 2nd, behind the winning U.S. Team.

Sindre Nyland of Norway placed 13th in the Open class and helped Team Norway in placing 3rd overall.

“Hornady has earned a worldwide reputation for accuracy and quality,” said Neil Davies, Hornady Marketing Director. “Seeing our products used by so many at the IPRF World Championship serves as a testament to our unrelenting pursuit of precision. It’s incredibly gratifying to see both our U.S. and our International shooters using Hornady products and competing on a global scale,” he added.

A-Tip® Match bullets feature an aluminum tip that is precision machined and longer than polymer tips, thus moving the center of gravity and enhancing inflight stability, resulting in tighter groups, and reduced drag variability. In addition, A-Tip bullets are sequentially packaged for the ultimate in consistent performance.

Originating in 2019, the IPRF has grown in leaps and bounds with nations committing to set up their international structures as the precision rifle sport matures in each country.
