Hornady® Superformance™ Rifle Ammunition

Hornady® Superformance™ Rifle Ammunition

Supercharge the performance of your favorite hunting rifle!  When bear hunting, the caliber of your bullet has much less to do with your success than shot placement and bullet performance.  Your ammunition can only help you place your bullet in the kill zone, but selecting a high performance bullet can make the track job short and simple.  Hornady has developed an innovative powder blend to gain up to an additional 200 fps from every Superformance caliber. The result is flatter trajectory, reduced wind drift, superior accuracy and more energy delivered on target – all with no increase in recoil or muzzleblast. Hornady’s lead-free Gilding Metal Expanding (GMX®) bullets provide consistent accuracy and devastating performance. They expand up to 1.5 times their original diameter with near-perfect weight retention. They shoot cleaner with less fouling than pure copper bullets. Double-cannelures reduce bearing surface in the barrel and fouling. Aggressive boattail design produces the highest ballistic coefficient in their class. Superformance is a new breed of super-premium ammunition without the premium price.

Hornady® LEVERevolution® Rifle Ammunition

Hornady® LEVERevolution® Rifle Ammunition

Technology in bear hunting rifles and ammunition continues to improve at the same rate as the rest of the world, but there are many bear hunters that still prefer their old lever action rifle in the mossy dark timber.  For those that love their lever action rilfes, Hornady has something foryou.  Hornady, a leader in ballistic innovation, now introduces a new line of ammunition for lever-action rifles that dramatically increases velocity, energy, trajectory and downrange terminal performance. Lever guns with tubular magazines have been hindered in the past by their inability to fire pointed bullets safely. Now Hornady has perfected the Elastomer Flex Tip™ bullet that can be safely fired from such rifles without fear of a chain reaction discharge in the magazine. The Flex Tip puts enough give in the bullet tip to prevent detonation of the primer ahead of it in the magazine. It also increases the ballistic coefficient of the round by using a pointed bullet design and permits the use of propellants that can turn popular 100-yard "brush gun" rounds into deadly performers at 200 yards and beyond. For example, LEVERevolution .30-30 ammunition shoots a 160-grain bullet that is 400 fps faster and has 400 ft.-lbs. more energy at 250 yards than conventional .30-30 ammo, and bullet drop at 300 yards is about 12" with a 200-yard zero. LEVERevolution similarly enhances the performance of other popular lever gun calibers and delivers up to 40% more energy compared to conventional flat-point ammunition.
