Hornady Sponsored Shooter Sean Murphy Wins RBGC Run-n-Gun Match

Hornady® congratulates sponsored shooter, Sean Murphy for his performance at the River Bend Gun Club, Run-n-Gun Match on March 30, 2024, in Dawsonville, Georgia.

Murphy took first place overall shooting Hornady .224 73 gr. ELD® Match bullets in his 223 Rem. Carbine and Hornady 9mm 125 gr. HAP® bullets in his pistol.

“The River Bend Run-n-Gun was a challenging event, testing both physical fitness and varied marksmanship skills,” said Murphy. The performance and consistency of Hornady bullets enabled me to win five out of six stages and overall best shooter,” he added.

ELD® Match (Extremely Low Drag Match) bullets are technologically advanced, enhanced accuracy target bullets featuring Heat Shield® tips with the PERFECT MEPLAT (tip point) combined with numerous design features that deliver the highest-in-class ballistic coefficients, superior accuracy and extreme consistency from bullet to bullet, lot to lot.

Gain the competitive edge with Hornady® HAP® (Hornady® Action Pistol) bullets. 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.

The River Bend Run-n-Gun match challenged shooters on six stages across four miles. 100 competitors participated in this event and scoring was based on 50% run time and 50% shooting performance.
