First Look: Hornady A-Tip Match Bullet

by
posted on May 5, 2019
Hornady Manufacturing's new A-Tip is the culmination of years of research into low-drag, high-performance match bullets. The bullet features a precision-machined aluminum tip which, thanks to the higher structural integrity of the material, is longer than polymer tips. This moves the center of gravity, and is said to enhance stability. The bullets have a doppler-verified high ballistic coefficient (BC), which makes them forgiving of twist rate, seating depth and muzzle velocity. Meanwhile, the refined design of the AMP bullet jacket promises uniformity and concentricity.

Speaking of uniformity, that's exactly what Hornady's manufacturing process had in mind for these bullets. The bullets are sequentially packaged, one clone after the other, for almost unparalleled consistency. There is also minimal handling of the bullets throughout the manufacturing process, including no bulk washing, thus reducing the chance of impacting the bullets' uniformity. 

Watch the video as American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach discusses the intricacies of this offering with Hornady's Neal Emery. For more information, please visit hornady.com.
