Hornady Shooter Uses A-Tip Bullets to Win Meaford Long Range Steel Challenge

Grand Island, NE.- Team Hornady shooter Dave Preston took first place at the Meaford Long Range Steel Challenge, September 1, 2019 in Meaford, Ontario, Canada.

Preston took first place using Hornady 6mm 110gr. A-Tip™ Match bullets. “The A-Tips really shined in this match due to a strong left to right wind on Saturday” said Preston. “With no backstops and tall grass behind the targets, it was very hard to see a miss, being able to get first round impacts played a huge part in winning this match” Preston added.

Years of research and testing by the Hornady Ballistic Development Group, combined with advanced manufacturing processes and quality control measures have led to the creation of the ultimate low drag, high performance match bullet.

The most striking visual feature of the A-Tip™ Match bullet is its long, uniform, precision-machined aluminum tip. The longer aluminum tips are machined to be caliber specific and when coupled with highly refined AMP® bullet jackets, aggressive profiles and optimized boattails the result is enhanced drag efficiency across the board.

The materials, design and manufacturing techniques combine for the most consistent and accurate match bullets available. In addition to development projectiles that will shoot well in a variety of chambers, the Ballistic Development Group also designed the A-Tip™ bullets with the right balance between the center of gravity of the projectile versus the center of pressure to minimize in-flight drag variability.
