New Hornady Products for 2015
October 15, 2014
Hornady has announced an assortment of new products for 2015, including ammunition, reloading tools and shooting accessories.
For starters, the company is introducing two completely new ammunition lines: Full Boar and American Gunner. Available in a wide variety of popular hunting calibers from .223 Rem. to .300 Win. Mag., the Full Boar line of rifle ammunition is designed for use on the toughest game and features Hornady's hard-hitting GMX bullets for deep penetration and maximum weight retention. The American Gunner line of handgun ammo is manufactured in the U.S., features Hornady's XTP bullets and premium Hornady components and is available in most standard handgun calibers.
Hornady is also releasing its first .17 Winchester Super Magnum (WSM) load. An impressive cartridge that bridges the gap between the rimfire .17 HMR and the centerfire .17 Hornet, Hornady's .17 WSM fires a 20-grain V-MAX bullet at an astonishing 3,000 feet per second (fps) and should be an excellent option for serious varmint hunters.
The company has also announced several additions to existing ammunition lines. Hornady's American Whitetail line now includes 12 gauge, 1-ounce rifled, foster-style slugs for use with smooth-bore shotguns, while the Superformance Varmint line gets a new .243 Winchester offering loaded with a 75-grain V-MAX bullet. Hornady has added the .357 Magnum to its Critical Duty line and a new 9mm Luger load to its reduced-recoil Critical Defense Lite lineup. A new .338 Lapua Magnum load in its Superformance Match line rounds out Hornady's new ammo offerings.
In addition, two new bullets will be available for 2015: 155-grain Match .308 and 100-grain 270-caliber GMX bullets.
An array of new reloading tools and shooting accessories complete the list of new Hornady products.
