Guns & Ammo Names Hornady 2020 Ammunition of the Year

(Grand Island, Nebr.) — Hornady® has received the Guns & Ammo award for Ammunition of the Year for its 6mm ARC (Advanced Rifle Cartridge) ammunition.

The 2020 award winners were chosen by a select group of editors, contributors and staff from Guns & Ammo magazine. The awards were judged based on performance, proven long-term durability, product value and availability to the consumer.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from Guns & Ammo” said Jason Hornady, Hornady Vice President. “The 6mm ARC was put to the test by Guns & Ammo, so their recognition of the accuracy, performance and innovation of this cartridge is extremely rewarding” Hornady added.

Guns and Ammo presents awards for firearms, optics, ammunition, suppressor and innovation. To protect the credibility of the awards, no manufacturers, advertisers or sales representatives were invited to the selection process.

The 6mm ARC does what much larger cartridges can and everything that small cartridges can’t. It delivers substantially better ballistics than the 223 Rem. and offers a much lighter gun/ammo system with 30% less weight than the AR-10/308 Win. system. Overall, the 6mm ARC delivers optimum all-range performance and barrel life.

Commercial 6mm ARC offers feature bullets selected to deliver ideal performance for hunting, match shooting and personal protection applications.

The 6mm ARC is available in the following product lines:

·6mm ARC 103 gr. ELD-X® Precision Hunter® (Coming soon).

·6mm ARC 105 gr. BTHP Hornady BLACK®

·6mm ARC 108 gr. ELD® Match
