Dave Emary, Chief Ballistic Scientist for Hornady Manufacturing, came up with the idea for the match several years ago as a way to incorporate popular vintage sniper rifles in national competition. Currently the rifles have no official competitive format. The new match trophy will be called the J.W. Hornady Memorial Trophy for Camp Perry. Hornady will custom load match ammunition in some rare vintage calibers specifically for the event, including 6.5x55 mm, .303 British, 7.62x54R and 8x57 mm.
