Hornady Manufacturing has donated $750,000 to the Central Community College (CCC) Foundation to create the Hornady Criminal Justice Fund. The fund will help support student scholarships and special needs within the CCC Criminal Justice Program. In recognition of the famed firm’s generosity, the college has renamed its crime house on the Grand Island, Neb., campus to the Hornady Crime House.

“Donating to the Central Community College Foundation and creating the Hornady Criminal Justice Fund demonstrates our commitment to the college and the community,” said Steve Hornady, president of Hornady Manufacturing. “It shows the pride we have in Central Community College and reflects our desire to support CCC and its programs.”

Central Community College’s Criminal Justice Technology program teaches a variety of skills and knowledge required for successful identification, arrest and prosecution of criminals. They include preservation and collection of forensic evidence, basic law principles, courtroom procedures, evidence requirements and more.

New Hornady Reloading App
Late last month, Hornady also unveiled an app version of its popular “Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading.” Like the bound and eBook versions, the new Hornady Reloading App provides everyone, from the novice to the seasoned handloader, everything needed to successfully reload a variety of rifle cartridges as well as handgun cartridges. It’s all there, from the .17 Hornet to the .50 BMG and .22 Hornet to the .500 S&W.

The convenience of a mobile app, paired with the Hornady catalog, brings power and knowledge to reloaders while browsing at a sporting-goods store, practicing at the range or trading at a gun show. Users now have velocity and powder charts, an impressive lineup of powders and information on bullet design and shooting application available at their fingertips—regardless of location.

The software also allows enthusiasts to save critical information directly from the range and review historical information on numerous cartridges. It’s an ideal solution when chronographing and accuracy-testing loads at the range.    

The app is Apple and Android compatible. Information on more than 200 calibers is available.
