- Q & A
Hornady was founded in 1949 by Joyce Hornady, who was disappointed when he saw the poor quality of ammunition flooding the market at the end of World War II. During the war he’d served as a marksmanship instructor, and he’d watched as quality steadily declined, noticing that it did not matter if the shooter was skilled; the ammunition was just that bad. Since day one Hornady has been dedicated to quality, and it’s evident in the reliable performance of their ammunition. Today their name is synonymous with quality, and they’ve become one of the most well-respected companies in the industry.
These particular Hornady rounds are meant for your .30-06. At 150 grain they’re fairly lightweight for this cartridge size, so they move down-range faster and produce less felt recoil. Considering the substantial felt recoil of .30-06 it is important to take note of that lessened recoil, because many shooters will develop an involuntary flinch with heavier weight rounds and their greater felt recoil. These are Hornady’s Super Shock Tip, SST, rounds, designed for maximum terminal performance and fantastic expansion on impact. They mushroom while decelerating to create a massive wound cavity and prevent over-penetration. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3080 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 3159 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for hunting game such as deer, antelope, and elk.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from Hornady you get 20 rounds. With 20 rounds you can have a great hunt, but remember, you need to zero your optics using the same ammunition you plan to hunt with, and you should get some range time in as well. Losing the perfect buck because you failed to properly zero your scope or didn’t get enough practice just isn’t worth saving the cost of extra ammunition. Go ahead, order extra boxes, and make sure you are well and truly prepared on your next hunt. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. Order now, and camo up.
