Hornady Precision Hunter Ammunition Line

Hornady has a lot going on this year at the 2016 SHOT Show, and not just ammunition. In addition to “Precision Hunter” ammunition line, they've added a new single stage press for reloaders — the Iron Press (more on that in the days to come). Precision Hunter is currently available in 8 rounds, including:

6.5 Creedmore 143 Gr., 7mm REM Mag 162 Gr., .308 Win 178 Gr., 30-06 Springfield 178 Gr., 300 RCM 178 Gr, 300 Win Mag 200 Gr., 300 Remington Ultra Mag 22 Gr. and 30-378 Weatherby Mag 220 Gr.

If you're at SHOT Show, swing by Booth #13145 to take a look at Precision Hunter, Iron Press and the various expansions to their American Gunner, American Whitetail, Full Boar and Custom lines. Take the opportunity while there to visit with Team Hornady sponsored shooters and a number of hunting and shooting celebrities.

Here's what they have to tell us about the Hornady Precision Hunter Ammunition line,

Accuracy and terminal performance are the cornerstones of Hornady® Precision Hunter™ factory loaded ammunition. Great care has been given by Hornady® engineers to develop superior, match-accurate hunting loads that allow the ELD-X™ bullet to achieve its maximum ballistic potential. Propellants used in the Precision Hunter™ ammunition line are clean burning and loaded to uniform capacity for consistent shot to shot results regardless of temperature. This attention to detail provides the highest levels of accuracy and performance uniformity for the most demanding and diverse hunting situations.

Featuring the radically superior ELD-X™ bullet with patent-pending Heat Shield™ tip, Precision Hunter™ is the ideal load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges.

Hornady Precison Ammo 2

  • Best-in-class BCs
    Verified by Doppler radar, the Heat Shield™ tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain the highest in-class BC over its entire trajectory.
  • Match accurate hunting bullet
    Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP® bullet jackets + patent pending Heat Shield™ tip combine for radically superior aerodynamic efficiency.
  • Devastating conventional range performance
    With high velocity, 0-400 yard impact, the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high Interlock® ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50-60% weight retention.
  • Best extended range terminal performance available
    Upon low velocity, 400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield™ tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90% retained weight, the bullet provides deep penetration and large cavities. Available as component bullets or in factory loaded Precision Hunter™ ammunition.

If you're interested in ballistics or ammunition at all, watch the videos below. They're pretty damned interesting.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
