Hornady Shooter Bennie Cooley Wins Top Factory at Defiance AnTi Social ''

(Grand Island, Nebr.) — Hornady® congratulates sponsored shooter Bennie Cooley for his performance at the Defiance AnTi Social NRL Hunter Match, May 18-19, 2024, in Belt, Montana.

Cooley took first place in the Factory Division and fifth overall using Hornady 6.5mm 153 gr. A-Tip® Match bullets in his 6.5mm Creedmoor.

“The high angles of fire and challenging wind calls made for a humbling match,” said Cooley. “The consistency of the 153 grain A-Tip bullet is second to none and simply hammer down range. They provide a definitive advantage,” 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.
