Hornady unveils the next generation of match ammunition – the Superformance 308 Win 178 gr BTHP Match. Achieving 2,775 feet per second from a SAAMI spec 24″ test barrel, this new load is approximately 175 fps FASTER than any comparable commercial load available today! Topped with the NEW 178 gr BTHP Match bullet featuring a .530 ballistic coefficient, this Superformance™ offering provides industry leading ballistic performance.
“The new 178 grain BTHP Match bullet was purpose built, and optimized specifically for the 308 Winchester chamber. It features an aggressive ogive as well as an extremely efficient boat tail that makes this projectile highly effective aerodynamically, yield less wind drift and allows the shooter to obtain flatter trajectories. Accuracy results were excellent. We shot a .680″ group at 200 yards with our test equipment, and field tests out to 1250 yards yielded 8 inch, not 8 MOA, but 8 inch total circumferential groups.” – Joe Thielen – Hornady Project Engineer
Remaining supersonic to approximately 1,275 yards, this new load provides a 200 to 250 yard advantage over anything else currently available in 308 Winchester. Because Hornady incorporates its Superformance technology, there is no increase in pressure, barrel wear or felt recoil. It also offers incredible temperature stability and excellent accuracy potential.
“When we combine this high B.C. match bullet with our Superformance propellants, the result is a completely new load specifically designed to maximize every aspect of the 308 Winchester.” – Dave Emary – Hornady Senior Ballistician
Hornady® Manufacturing, a world-renowned leader in ballistic technology, will receive two National Rifle Association (NRA) Publications Golden Bullseye Awards during a special ceremony at the 2010 NRA Annual Meetings in Charlotte, North Carolina this May.

Winning criteria includes: products must be recent introductions and available to consumers; feature innovative design and function; meet or exceed field reliability expectations; and demonstrate style befitting the firearm industry as well as good purchase value.
“At Hornady, we strive to deliver the most innovative products to hunters and shooting enthusiasts,” said Steve Hornady, President. “It’s an honor to be recognized by an organization as prestigious as NRA Publications and we are very pleased to have been selected to receive both of these awards.”
Superformance™ ammunition is loaded with premium propellants that are custom blended to increase velocities by as much as 200 fps without extra chamber pressure, recoil, muzzle blast, temperature sensitivity, fouling or loss of accuracy. Exceptional temperature sensitivity from -15 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit suits every hunting environment, from sweltering desert to the frigid arctic.
