New from Hornady for 2015 is the American Gunner series of multipurpose ammunition. Equally at home in hunting, self-defense, law enforcement and target shooting applications, the new line is manufactured in the U.S. using premium Hornady components and the company’s XTP (eXtreme Terminal Performance) bullets, and is available in the majority of the most popular handgun chamberings. Known particularly for accuracy and terminal performance, XTP bullets are specifically designed for reliable, controlled expansion at a wide variety of handgun velocities. This is achieved through the use of a strategically weakened jacket that is thicker at the bullet’s base and narrower at its nose, helping the projectile to expand on impact at even relatively low speeds. Propellants used in American Gunner ammunition are matched to each specific load, ensuring the optimal performance of each product in the line. Hornady is currently offering the following loads: a 90-gr. .380 ACP cartridge, a 115-gr. 9 mm Luger cartridge, a 124-gr. 9 mm Luger +P cartridge, a 125-gr. .38 Spl. cartridge, a 125-gr. .357 Mag. cartridge, a 180-gr. .40 S&W cartridge and a 185-gr. .45 ACP cartridge. Price: $22 per box (20 count per box of .40 S&W and .45 ACP., 25 count for all other chamberings). Contact: Hornady Mfg. Company, 3625 Old Potash Highway, P.O. Box 1848, Grand Island, NE 68803; (308) 382-1390; hornady.com.
