- Q & A
In 1949 Joyce Hornady noticed the ammunition flooding the market as World War II drew to a close wasn’t performing well; even skilled marksmen were having serious problems with their guns and shot placement. His solution to the issue was to simply produce the ammunition himself, so he started with a .30 caliber bullet and slowly branched out to produce the vast number of calibers the company sells now. Joyce’s motto was “ten rounds through one hole” which spoke to his belief in the importance of not only high quality ammunition but also the value of practice. Today, Hornady has been in business for more than 60 years and has a stellar reputation in the industry.
These Hornady rounds are made for your .30-06 rifle. At 150 grain these are actually considered rather lightweight rounds for the cartridge size and being lighter weight enables them to fly down-range at even higher speeds. Being lighter also means there’s less felt recoil, which is an important detail with .30-06 rounds which produce a felt recoil at the upper limit of what many shooters can handle without developing a flinch reflex. Each of these rounds has an impressive muzzle velocity of 2910 feet per second and hammer home with a muzzle energy of 2820 foot-pounds. These are SP rounds and begin to expand on impact, although expansion is somewhat slower than HP rounds, allowing for deeper penetration and a more devastating wound tract. This ammunition is favored by many shooters for hunting game such as deer but can also be used for target practice.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition from Hornady you get 20 rounds. That’s just enough to get a little hunting in or send a few practice rounds down-range. If you want to make sure you’re well-stocked for hunting season or get some serious trigger time in, make sure you order multiple boxes. These are brand new production, brass-cased, boxer-primed rounds and can be reloaded. Hornady manufactures all ammunition at their established factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. All ammunition undergoes rigorous testing and extensive quality control measures. Place your order now and feed your .30-06 ammunition capable of doling out terminal performance.
