Share Article

Ammunition, bullets and reloading tools highlight a great year of innovative new products for Hornady Manufacturing.

Hornady Manufacturing, an industry leader in bullet and ammunition technology, announces a comprehensive lineup of new products for 2012. These new ammunition, bullet and reloading products will be available from stocking dealers, major retail sporting goods stores and their websites.

Critical DUTY
Law enforcement and tactical professionals now have a truly advanced, 21st Century handgun ammunition solution that delivers the most consistent and reliable urban barrier performance available. The proven Flex Tip design of the new FlexLock bullet eliminates clogging and aids bullet expansion. Its large, mechanical jacket-to-core, InterLock band works to keep the bullet and core from separating for maximum weight retention and proven terminal performance through all FBI test barriers.

17 Hornet Superformance Varmint
The new 17 Hornet ammunition is an economical and fun .17 caliber centerfire cartridge that puts the sting on varmints out to 300 yards. The 17 Hornet propels the 20 gr V-Max at 3,650 fps with a trajectory comparable to a traditional 55 gr 223 Rem, but with the felt recoil of a 22 WMR.

Heavy Magnum Turkey
With 1 ½ ounces of either #4, #5 or #6 nickel plated lead shot, these 3 inch 12 gauge shotgun loads deliver true gobbler knockdown power. They feature the thickest nickel-plating in the industry with minimized shot deformation enabling more shot to reach the intended target. And, at 1300 fps, this load allows hunters to achieve lethal penetration out to 50 yards.

Vintage Match
Vintage Match ammo is built to replicate the original military performance specifications unique to wartime rifles. It provides superior quality, off-the-shelf ammunition for the shooter who is looking for a match grade alternative to surplus or hand-loaded ammo.

Be prepared for the “Zombie Apocalypse” with Zombie Max ammunition, loaded with Hornady Z-Max bullets. Zombie Max loads are offered in three rifle rounds, three handgun rounds and a 12 gauge shotgun round. Zombie Max ammunition is not a toy.
