Hornady: Accurate, Deadly, Dependable

 

Hornady Manufacturing was built and thrives to this day on a vision for the future, a trait firmly on display in its ability to harness technology, create cutting-edge designs and craft products enthusiasts deserve. The approach is genetic. The business remains family owned and operated after more than 70 years, and the Hornady spirit appears to be contagious, based on the prowess of its research and development teams.

 

Hornady History

 

Joyce Hornady was an avid hunter and shooter who, although deemed too old for service during World War II, taught marksmanship to security forces stationed at Nebraska’s Grand Island Arsenal. The duties didn’t slow his hunting, although the war effort’s drain on stateside supplies made bullets scarce. So, he figured out how to redraw .22-caliber rimfire brass into bullets suitable for centerfire cartridges. Sometime after VJ Day he partnered with Vernon Speer, and the design became available to the public under the “Speer Hornady Bullets” name.

 

Speer moved to Idaho and built his own legend. Hornady stayed in the Heartland and knew the post-war glut of surplus cartridges was good news for recreational shooters, but also understood the bullets they carried were not ideal for hunting. Add the sudden excess of components—brass, powder, primers—that would make the economy of reloading attractive to returning G.I.s and he saw an opportunity.

 

In 1949 he opened the doors of Hornady Manufacturing Company in Grand Island, NE. Its motto was, and still is today, “Accurate, deadly, dependable.” A .30-caliber 150-grain spire-point was the first bullet it made—a design that remains popular.

 

Korean War Slowdown

 

Sales totaled only $10,000 the first year—not enough to put the books in the black—although the figure tripled in the next 12 months. Staff size grew to four, then the Korean Conflict arrived, and its corresponding scarcity in raw materials. Commercial bullet production slowed, and rather than risk layoffs or idle the business, Hornady entered into a contract with the government to manufacture war effort items.

 

The approach worked and after fighting stopped production resumed to normal. Business was good and by 1958 it the company had outgrown the mid-town building it launched from—formerly an auto body shop. That year the company opened an 8,000-square foot factory west Grand Island, in an area outside city limits. The facility even included a 200-yard, underground range for testing, another testament to the company’s foresight. The location was remote at the time, but today it’s surrounded by buildings.  

 

Hornady Innovation and Cartridges

 

Hornady added sales and marketing staff in the 1960s and the pension for innovation shined when company experiments identified an improved bullet design. The secant ogive spire point was the result, and it’s still used in most pointed-bullet profiles to this day. The technical-sounding approach, in simplest terms, improves ballistic coefficient and exterior ballistics by increasing the radius of the circle reflected by the pointy/rounded end of the bullet—in effect, smoothing things, improving aerodynamics and decreasing drag. Common sense, except if that radius gets too large accuracy is lost and if you sacrifice too much of the projectile’s straight-walled section it can have problems settling into the barrel’s rifling. Thankfully the engineers and ballisticians have done all the heavy calculus.

 

It wasn’t long until the company was offering everything from .22- to .45-caliber bullets for reloaders. Then, in 1964, Hornady rolled out its Frontier Ammunition line of cartridges. Built from surplus brass and Hornady projectiles at strict manufacturing tolerances, it quickly gained favor for performance and affordability.

 

Staff grew to 40 and sales climbed at an annual rate of 30 percent. Consumer demand was so great that manufacturing space was expanded to 25,000-square feet.

 

When the Vietnam war began the company faced a different challenge, though. Surplus brass vanished and, to ensure production continued uninterrupted, Hornady entered into mutually beneficial agreements with other major manufacturers. A byproduct of those relationships continues to this day—seen in the number of Hornady bullets in cartridges assembled by other companies.

 

Joyce Hornady’s youngest son, Steve, came to work for Hornady Manufacturing in 1970. Then in 1971 Hornady Manufacturing purchased Pacific Tool Company—Steve Hornady’s former employer—which had been making reloading presses and gear since 1928. One of the company’s last designs, a progressive press, was so innovative that it continues to be popular to this day.  

 

Despite all the success and challenged, the emphasis on technology and improvement never faltered. In 1965 its engineers developed the Innergroove, scoring inside the bullet to ensure proper “upset” (mushrooming) on impact. The InterLock, which minimizes separation by using an interior ring, came in 1977.  

 

Overcoming Tragedy

 

Joyce Hornady and two members of his staff died on Jan. 15, 1981, while traveling to the firearm industry’s annual Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show.

 

Steve Hornady took over as president. His wife Marval, who had already been working for the company for nearly a decade, became chairman of the board. Joyce’s daughter, Margaret Hornady David and her husband left corporate positions at Polaroid to join the team.

 

Hornady Ammunition

 

What followed is a rapid and unparalleled harnessing of groundbreaking technology in the company’s cartridges and bullets. A large part of that is the engineers the company has attracted, but without management willing to risk it on a concept, none of it would be possible. If you’re one of the many 6.5 Creedmoor fans, you can thank Hornady. It introduced the cartridge in 2007. More recently it gave us the 6.5 PRC and .300 PRC cartridges. Want reliable feeding and stopping power in your self-defense handgun? Hornady has the answer.

 

Hornady Critical Defense

 

One failure in your self-defense gun with your preferred carry cartridge is not acceptable. It’s a simple stovepipe on the range, but in a criminal confrontation, the results can be fatal. Hornady’s Critical Defense and Critical Duty lineup harnesses the company’s FTX (Flex Tip) Bullet tip technology that helps avoid feeding problems, minimizes clogging through barriers like clothing, yet delivers fight-stopping terminal performance. The former is fine-tuned for home- and self-defense, the latter tailored for law enforcement officers, who require better barrier penetration as they protect and serve. The cartridges are available for most handguns and even some long guns.

 

Hornady Custom XTP

 

The ultimate in self-defense loads from the company, however, may be it's Custom XTP (eXtreme Terminal Performance) line of cartridges. Renowned for their accuracy, the projectile is a hollowpoint covered in a jacket of gilding metal to ensure unfailing feeding. Serrations ensure proper upset on impact and the swaged core ensures in-flight stability with proper expansion. It’s available for a variety of chamberings.

 

Hornady LEVERevolution

 

Historically, one of the big limitations to lever-action rifles is a tubular magazine that requires cartridges to line up, single file. If those loads feature a ballistically superior pointed bullet and one of them strikes the primer ahead with enough force, the results are more than just “surprising.” Hornady was the first to solve the problem and put some exterior ballistics back into the equation using the same FTX technology.

 

Hornady A-MAX

 

When precision is key and performance cannot be compromised, take a close look at this Hornady line—from bullets for that precision reloader, to complete cartridges. The A-MAX projectile starts with a secant ogive profile to improve external ballistics, adds a swaged lead core to improve shot-to-shot repeatability and puts it in the company’s AMP jacket, which has virtually zero deviation in wall thickness.  Add an ultra-low drag tip to improve ballistic coefficient and its an ideal option for anyone trying to make that long-distance connection, or dozens of them.

    Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket (FMJ)
    Manufacturer Hornady
    Manufacturer SKU 22760B

    Take care! This is not loaded ammunition that you can fire right out of the box. These are 5,500 component bullets for hobbyists who load their own ammunition.

    Hornady makes some mighty fine ammo, largely due to the fact that they make some mighty fine bullets. Why not put that good old-fashioned Nebraskan know-how to work the next 5,500 times you load a round for your own AR-15?

    This is Hornady’s .224” diameter full metal jacket bullet. The FMJ features Hornady’s signature Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket, which has essentially no variation in its concentricity or wall thickness. And it’s a strong jacket at that – unlike other manufacturers’ target grade bullets, Hornady’s FMJ greatly resists splintering apart as it penetrates its target. If you’re a prepper mass-producing your own SHTF loads, take note that this bullet punches a little harder than the rest!

    Seating this bullet is easy thanks to the clean cannelure girdling its shank. Hornady even put a little boat tail on there to give your handloads a higher ballistic coefficient! And at 62 grains, this component bullet is ideal if you want to load ammo to M855 specs.

    62 FMJ Hornady

    Very consistent when seating to hit the cannelure just perfect to form a nice roll crimp. I do trim my brass to get them to the same length. These are the among best quality bulk bullets on the market. Armscor and Sierra are good too but I like the Hornadys the best.

    Accurate at 1-9 twist, 20" A2, at 600 yds

    I doubted this bbl would stabilize this heavy of a bullet, but I was wrong. They'll cut the X ring out at 100, stay in the X ring at 200 to 600 as well. Whether they'll handle wind as well as heavier bullets is doubt full, but for the price they do a great job. I'm running them at 2700 fps over H4895.

    Better than NATO

    I've loaded and shot hundreds of these in my .308 gas guns. This is a good all around service rifle bullet. Way better than 147 gr. NATO pulls or repros in both M1a and AR 10.

    Great Value - Going to Buy More

    Great for practicing shooting out to 100 yards and probably beyond. When loaded precisely, neck tension, coal on ogive consistent powder charge, etc. able to shoot .75 moa with my ruger american in .308. Also great for the M1 garand, almost identical to the original bullets meant for the gun. Very consistent in weight, length, etc. Obviously not a 600 yard or hunting bullet.

    This is not loaded ammunition. These are component bullets, and they are only useful to handloaders.

    Do you intend to load some 6.5 Grendel hunting ammunition? Solid plan. Let Hornady take care of the all-important bullet side of things courtesy of their famous InterLock!

    The InterLock is a high-tech round nose soft point projectile. This 160 grain bullet takes its name from Hornady’s InterLock ring, which is an extension of the jacket that is embedded in the bullet’s lead core. This keeps the two components anchored tightly together, thus assuring the InterLock retains a high percentage of its weight even following high-velocity impact. The InterLock doubles down with a cannelure which does even more to prevent core/jacket separation.

    The InterLock is designed to put down game fast. The jacket surrounding its blunt nose has skives, which direct reliable mushrooming even if the bullet strikes its target with very little energy. The jacket is additionally tapered to control reliable expansion as well. Hornady reports the 160 grain InterLock’s G1 BC at 0.283, and its sectional density at 0.328.

    An AR-15 without 5.56x45 ammo is like a broken pencil – pointless. Keep your classic American rifle happy by ordering a box or two of Hornady’s Frontier ammo for it today!

    Frontier label ammo is loaded for Hornady at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. They’re our military’s chief small arms ammo manufacturer, which makes this 5.56 ammo military spec. As an M193 round its 55 grain bullet is completely nonmagnetic – just a lead core and a copper jacket like a traditional FMJ should have. The bullet’s 0.243 G1 ballistic coefficient grants it the flat and accurate trajectory you want for target shooting over a wide range of distances.

    This ammo’s military-grade cases have been annealed to give them greater strength. Lake City’s not overly concerned with cosmetics, which is why they didn’t bother to polish their new brass cases before loading them. Military cases also has primer pockets which require removal before you reload them.

    This ammo has non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder, so you can empty all 150 rounds in this box before you have to think about cleaning your firearm.

    Hornady teamed up with the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant to create this 5.56x45 Frontier cartridge. That means you get to benefit from the work of one of the finest military-grade ammunition producers in the whole world! This round’s brass casing is top notch stuff, the kind you can depend on to cycle efficiently and be of great value time and time again at your reloading bench. Lake City’s state of the industry loading process yielded an intensely reliable primer and propellant charge for this round as well, and their intensive quality assurance protocol ensured that everything came together perfectly for your hungry rifle.

    Hornady would never let anyone else make one of their bullets, though -- that’s their forte. As such this round’s 68 grain projectile features its maker’s signature AMP jacket, which has virtually zero variation in its concentricity, as well as a swaged lead core, ballistically efficient boat tail, and perfectly centered hollow point meplat. This is a bullet that begs to be used in a competition, although for the round’s price tag you won’t mind doing whatever you like with it!

    Hornady’s Frontier line of ammunition is all about versatility. They boast, rightly, that a Frontier round is the one to reach for whether you would spend your afternoon plinking, target shooting, and training for law enforcement. It’s also in no way inadequate (and in fact excellent for) hunting and self-defense as well. Combined with its reasonable price, this one-size-fits-all brand is great for shooters who appreciate the opportunity to familiarize themselves with one cartridge’s performance as intimately as they can.

    This 5.56x45mm cartridge features a 75 grain projectile. Its boat tail design greatly increases its ballistic coefficient to raise its accuracy, flatten its trajectory, and improve its performance in windy environments. Because the bullet is also a hollow point, it will expand to create a deep and wide wound channel in soft targets, so a well-placed shot could certainly take down a malicious interloper.

    Frontier ammunition further offers reloadable brass casings and military grade Boxer primers and propellant. Hornady’s meticulous manufacturing process sees to it that each and every Frontier round is loaded to consistent specifications, and their quality assurance protocol ensures that they’re all flawless before exiting their factory’s doors.

    Tried this out in my 26", 8 twist, 223 Wylde bolt gun and was surprised to get .55-.65" groups. Even more amazed the velocity was 2916 fps with a 34 ES. This has to be at the hot end of the load data so be sure you have a rifle that can take it. Much cheaper, faster, and just as accurate as Magtech 77gr. Only negative was several rounds had some good dents in the shoulder area, so watch out for quality issues.

    This Frontier label 223 Rem ammunition by Hornady is great for all the long-distance shooters out there. It showcases the Nebraskan master’s HP Match, which is basically 55 grains of nothing but accuracy-enhancing features.

    The HP Match’s swaged lead core is highly uniform, and doesn’t possess air pockets that could impact its balance. Its AMP jacket is drawn with virtually zero runout or variations in its wall thickness. The HP Match is also extremely sleek, from its narrow meplat to its secant ogive geometry to its sloping boat tail.

    This round’s HP Match bursts out of a 24” barrel at a velocity of 3,240 fps. So well-balanced and streamlined a bullet exhibits a G1 BC of 0.254, and can be counted on to remain supersonic beyond 700 yards. Whether you’re shooting targets or varmints, so flat a trajectory is certain to come in very handy.

    The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant loads this AR-15 ammo. Widener’s customers who can’t get enough brass are sure to find a good use for this ammo’s new production cases, which are visibly annealed and long-lasting. Lake City’s military-grade primers, propellant and loading practices deliver reliable performance however you shoot!

    The American Frontier no longer exists, but Hornady Frontier is alive and well. We’ve got a bunch of it in our warehouse, as a matter of fact, and it’s ready for action whether you’ve got long-distance shooting, varmint detail or home defense in your plans!

    This 5.56x45 cartridge is designed to turn any AR-15 into a capable sniper rifle. It’s furnished with a heavyweight 68 grain bullet. It’ll stabilize best out of a rifle with a 1:8 barrel twist, but a little faster or slower twist will be okay as well. As a boat tail hollow point this bullet features a ballistically efficient profile and balanced, uniformly distributed lead core. It won’t expand inside of its target, but it’s certain to get there courtesy of its match grade accuracy.

    Frontier ammo is non-corrosive, nonmagnetic, and made in America. This ammo’s military-grade brass cases are consistently drawn and chambered to help them reliably weave in and out of a chamber, and you can rest assured they’re good for handloading.

    The American frontier is gone, but Hornady Frontier keeps going strong! This is the 223 Rem ammo you want to chamber when accuracy is key – grouping tight shots through paper, or landing a single bullet clean between a gopher’s peepers.

    Hornady utilizes their industry’s most advanced loading equipment and protocol when they piece together a Frontier load. This American-made ammo’s brass cases are military-grade, and you can see by their annealing that they’re poised to reload several times. This ammo’s primers are also military-grade, which promotes consistent ballistics along with its uniform propellant charges and bullet weights.

    Each bullet is Hornady’s accurate BTHP Match. It features its manufacturer’s Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket and a form-fitted swaged lead core, both of which enhance in-flight stability to ensure the meplat is always pointed at its target. The BTHP Match’s secant ogive profile, boat tail and narrow hollow point meplat all decrease in-flight drag to flatten trajectory. Zero in at 200 yards and you can expect only 7.5” of bullet drop at 300!

    The BTHP Match’s hollow point doesn’t affect terminal ballistics by creating expansion. The impact of a 68 grain bullet alone ought to take care of most varmint hunting and self-defense applications, though.

    Good Quality and Great Service

    After spending a couple of hours looking for a decent price on 68 grain .223 BTHP ammo that was in stock, I finally found Widener's site, and they actually had it in stock. This ammo is pricy everywhere, but Widener's had it available for about a nickel per round below the next best price. I immediately placed an order, and the shipment showed up two days before I expected it. I will definitely look forward to looking to Widener's when I've saved up enough money for another purchase.

    Turn your AR-15, Mini-14, or other .223 Rem/5.56 NATO rifle into a fearsome varmint exterminator with this .223 Remington ammo from Hornady's Varmint Express series. These cartridges are loaded with V-MAX hollow point bullets with an aerodynamic polymer tip. V-MAX projectiles are designed to fragment rapidly to exterminate groundhogs, nutria, coyotes, and other pest animals.

    Each cartridge in this bulk priced case of 200 fires a 55-grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second. This results in trajectories similar to M193 mil-spec ball; for a varmint load, this ammo fires a relatively heavy bullet suitable for larger targets. The ballistic similarities between this ammo and common range loads makes for easy transitions between target shooting and hunting applications.

    Hornady ammunition is produced in Grand Island, Nebraska using reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers. Originally founded in the 1940s as a manufacturer of high-end bullets, Hornady branched out into loaded ammo in the 1980s and offers products for defense, hunting, and competition use.

    This .223 Remington ammo from Hornady's Varmint Express series delivers excellent performance against larger varmints as well as coyotes and other predators. These cartridges feature Hornady V-MAX polymer tipped hollow point bullets, which deliver excellent accuracy and fragment rapidly upon contact with an animal to effect a quick, clean kill with less risk of overpenetration.

    Each cartridge in this box of 20 fires a 55-grain version of the V-MAX at a muzzle velocity of 3,240 feet per second. Compared to other varmint loads, this ammo fires a relatively heavy bullet at a medium velocity, producing external ballistics comparable to those of M193 ball. This is a plus for shooters who prefer minimal optics adjustment when transitioning between target shooting and hunting, and it enhances the load's terminal performance against larger animals.

    Hornady ammo is loaded in Grand Island, Nebraska using non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass.

    A Hornady BLACK round is designed with versatility in mind. You can therefore trust this 6.8 SPC round to feed and function in any platform of firearm that is able to chamber it. Gas piston? Direct impingement? Rifle? Carbine? Suppressor? You don’t have to take any of that into account when you’ve got BLACK ammunition in your rucksack.

    This cartridge features Hornady’s own 110 grain V-MAX, a bullet designed to give you hands down some of the best varmint hunting you’ll have ever enjoyed. The V-MAX delivers the high ballistic coefficient that hunting skittish critters demands, as its bearing surface and jacket concentricity both lend themselves to superior in-flight stability, and its meplat is sharp and totally symmetrical. The V-MAX further provides explosive fragmentation, a feat it owes to its polymer tip which builds up great energy before smashing into the base of the precisely formed hollow in its swaged lead core.

    These 20 cartridges’ factory fresh brass casings promise to cycle through a semi-automatic like a dream, and their great durability will provide value should you elect to handload them. Hornady’s sensitive primers and consistent propellant charges both burn exceptionally clean, so you’ll be able to focus on varmints rather than bottles of Hoppe’s No. 9.

    Have you ever seen a 20-leaf clover? Maybe so if you’ve ever visited Chernobyl, but if you want to actually make a 20-leaf clover – the paper target variety, that is – then you need this box of Hornady BLACK 308 Win ammo!

    This match shooter’s round is loaded with a 155 grain A-MAX, a bullet that places accuracy above all else. Its swaged lead core is uniformly distributed, and its AMP jacket is intensely concentric – hence the A-MAX’s near perfect in-flight stability. This bullet also features a boat tail and sleek secant ogive profile to greatly limit how much drag can slow down its trajectory.

    On its meplat is the A-MAX’s ultra low-drag tip, which is sharp and centered to ensure a clean break through the air. So many accuracy-enhancing elements amplifies this round’s G1 ballistic coefficient to 0.435. That’ll keep it supersonic well beyond 1,000 yards, so you can do your fanciest shooting to date.

    BLACK label ammo is designed for flawless functionality out of any kind of rifle. Doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, suppressed or unsuppressed, direct impingement or gas piston – it’s going to tear right through this expertly loaded ammo.

    These things are Boss!

    I can hardly wait to put a couple of these down range, but reloading first, shooting second and repeat. Beautiful product!

    Review by Jeffie70 (Posted on 4/8/2021)

    good out to at least 1000 yds

    My three 50's shoot these A-maxes very consistently at 1000 yd matches. Wideners has always been a good source of 50 BMG components and they run sales on these products as well. I am a long time Wideners customer. They offer good products at good prices. They are my go to place for reloading everything.
