Tonight on American Rifleman TV: Hornady American Gunner; Weatherby Orion

posted on January 6, 2016

Hornady started out as just a bullet maker, but now the company is now a full-line ammunition maker. American Rifleman's Joseph Kurtenbach spent time with the Hornady engineers at their Nebraska manufacturing facility to get a closer look at its new American Gunner line designed for target shooting, hunting or self-defense. The line uses Hornady's premium XTP (eXtreme Terminal Performance) hollow-point bullet—considered a game changer for consistent, reliable terminal performance. 

In "Rifleman Review," Mark Keefe busts some clays with the newest Weatherby Orion, a turkish-made over-under shotgun. 

And finally, "I Have This Old Gun" showcases the Japanese Type 11 Light Machinegun.
