Team Hornady had a great time at the 2008 National Matches at Camp Perry in Port Clinton, Ohio. R. Lee Ermey, aka “The Gunny” of the television show “Mail Call,” and the notorious “Gunnery Sergeant Hartman” in the movie “Full Metal Jacket,” wa…
The LEVERevolution® line of ammunition from Hornady® continues to revolutionize the shooting industry. The NEW 44 Magnum LEVERevolution® ammunition was recently awarded an Editor’s Choice Award for Handgun Ammo of the Year in the August issue of Outdoor Life magazine.
Chris Christian, award winning competitive pistol shooter, former Navy small arms instructor and Outdoor Life Editor, wrote, “Hornady’s new 225-grain LEVERevolution® load (1,410 fps from a 6-inch barrel) will increase the range of any 44 Magnum handgun, carbine or single-shot with its polymer tip and increased ballistic coefficient.”
The 44 Mag, loaded with the 225 gr. FTX™ bullet, represents the first time advanced LEVERevolution® Flex Tip™ technology has been used in a true dual-purpose (handgun/lever gun) application. Typical hollow point pistol bullets expand too quickly and sacrifice penetration at the higher velocities achieved with lever action rifles. But Flex Tip™ eXpanding™ bullets expand reliably, transferring significant immediate energy with devastating temporary cavities over an incredibly wide range of velocities.
“We are very proud of the 44 Magnum,” said Dave Emary, Hornady Senior Ballistician. “The versatility this cartridge offers is an incredible asset to hunters and shooting enthusiasts, and we are pleased that a publication as respected as Outdoor Life has selected it as Handgun Ammo of the Year.”

The 300 and 338 Ruger Compact Magnum (RCM) cartridges from Hornady® received the 2008 Academy of Excellence Award for “Ammunition of the Year.” This is the fifth consecutive year that a Hornady® ammunition product has received this award.
The Academy of Excellence Award honors exceptional design, innovation, and service in a variety of categories, and is highly coveted within the shooting industry. Winners are chosen by a select group of 500 shooting industry affiliates including manufacturers, distributors, storefront dealers, and outdoor writers. A tedious two-tiered nomination and voting system protects the integrity and significance of the award by preventing influence from any single group.
Hornady® purpose-built the 300 and 338 RCMs for the toughest hunting in the world. Based on the beltless 375 Ruger case, the 300 and 338 RCMs match or exceed 300 and 338 Win Mag performance from a shorter, more compact, 20″ barrel. This compact rifle/cartridge combination provides a lighter and easier-to-handle package, providing ease and flexibility in even the most rugged hunting environments. The 300 RCM is available in 150, 165 and 180 grain offerings. The 338 RCM is offered in a 200 grain SST® and 225 grain SST®. Its efficient design requires 10-15% less propellant which helps extend barrel life, and reduces recoil and muzzle blast. Innovative propellant technology ensures velocity performance and very little temperature sensitivity from -15° to 140°F.
