Hornady® Introduces New A-TIP™ Match Bullet
The most striking visual feature of the A-Tip™ Match bullet is its long, uniform, precision-machined aluminum tip.
A-Tip™ bullets will be available in 100-count boxes, and retailers will also sell sleeves of five sequential 100-count boxes packaged together, as well as a case pack of two 500-count sleeves for a total of 1,000 sequentially packed bullets. Since the bullets will not be touched or tumbled, there will be some slight oil residue, so a bullet polishing bag will be included with each 100-count box for the hand loader to use in preparing bullets for loading.
Initial offerings of the A-Tip™ bullet include the following listings with Doppler radar measured G1 and G7 BCs:
- 6mm 110 grain G1: .604 G7: .304
- 6.5mm 135 grain G1: .637 G7: .321
- 6.5mm 153 grain G1: .704 G7: .355
- 30 caliber 230 grain G1: .823 G7: .414
- 30 caliber 250 grain G1: .878 G7: .442
Use of a new A-Tip™ bullet seating stem is required for optimal bullet seating. Please visit hornady.com for full details.
A-Tip™ bullet BC values have been measured at Mach 2.25 and corrected back to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standard Atmosphere (sea level, 59 degrees F, 29.92 inHg, 0% humidity).
Visit hornady.com/BC for BC values measured at Mach 2.0 and Mach 1.75 for calculating trajectories when shooting long distances.
