Hornady Superformance Match

    Also new for 2011 from Hornady is a line of Superformance match ammunition. It will be available in .223 Rem, 5.56mm NATO and two loads in .308 Win. It is interesting to see a specific 5.56mm load. I presume they have optimized that for semi-automatic rifles.

    It is FAST! It is ACCURATE! It is VERSATILE! Superformance™ Match Ammunition achieves muzzle velocities of 100 – 200 fps faster than ANY conventional ammunition. Amazing ammunition performance starts with outstanding bullets, and Hornady® AMAX® and Boattail Hollow Point Match™ bullets, now featuring revolutionary new AMP™ (Advanced Manufacturing Process) bullet jackets, raise the standard.

    Topped with the finest bullets, Superformance™ Match ammunition marries the very best cartridge cases with extremely stable propellants that are custom blended for each individual load to provide TRUE ammunition performance enhancement. Highpower competitors, as well as law enforcement and military shooters and snipers will all benefit from the Superformance™ Match advantage – higher muzzle velocity, phenomenal accuracy, increased range and reduced wind drift. Superformance™ Match – the limits have been broken!
