Hornady® Shooters Hamilton and Murphy Win Real World Sniper Challenge

Grand Island, NE — Hornady® congratulates sponsored shooters Sean Murphy and Greg Hamilton on their performance at the Real World Sniper Challenge, May 24-26,2024, in Refugio, TX.

Murphy and Hamilton took first place for the fifth time in a row using Hornady 6.5mm 135 gr. A-Tip® Match bullets in their rifles and 125 gr. HAP® bullets in their 9mm pistols.

"The terrain, heat, and grueling miles made for an incredibly intense match this year,” said Murphy. “Despite the challenges, we had the highest confidence in the accuracy of our bullets and that helped solidify our victory,” he 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, HAP bullets feature a sleek and balanced projectile with a protected nose that aids in consistent and reliable feeding in auto loading pistols.

Founded in 1949, Hornady® Manufacturing Company is a family-owned business headquartered in Grand Island, Nebraska. 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.
