Team Hornady Shooters Murphy and Hamilton Win Mammoth Sniper Challenge

(Grand Island, Nebr.) — Hornady® congratulates Sean Murphy and Greg Hamilton for their performance in the Toughman Division at the 2021 Mammoth Sniper Challenge, January 7-9 in Ft. Gordon, Georgia.

Murphy and Hamilton shot Hornady® 6mm 110 gr. A-Tip® and 22 cal. 75 gr. ELD® Match bullets in the three-day precision rifle competition.

“The field seemed a lot more competitive this year and the points race came down to the final few stages to determine the winner” said Murphy. “The targets were not generous, so having accurate and reliable bullets was key to success” Murphy added.

Murphy and Hamilton each shot 100 rounds on 11 stages. Most stages were shot blind, with limited information provided on the course of fire, testing each shooters skillset.

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.

ELD® Match bullets are technologically advanced, enhanced accuracy match bullets featuring Heat Shield® tips with the perfect meplat, combined with numerous design features that deliver highest-in-class BCs, superior accuracy and extreme consistency.
