Team Hornady® Wins Division Titles at AR15.com/Rockcastle Pro Am 3-Gun Championship
Jason Hornady, Vice President of Hornady® Manufacturing commented, "At Hornady Manufacturing, we enjoy supporting and being involved in matches, particularly when it attracts newcomers to the growing sport of 3-Gun shooting."
Clint Upchurch ran a great match, winning five of the eight Pro stages, as well as the Open Division. Shooting Jessie Duff Hornady® 125 grain HAP® hand loaded bullets in his 38 SC pistol, Upchurch added, "Hornady HAP bullets are incredibly accurate, and the feeding characteristics are always consistent." For long-range steel targets, Upchurch shot Hornady® 223 Rem 75 grain Steel Match® in his rifle, noting, "I can always count on Hornady Steel Match for flawless performance."
Jessie Duff won High Lady in the Tac Optics Division, shooting Hornady® 115 grain 9mm XTP® bullets in her pistol, and Hornady® 223 Rem 55 grain V-MAX™ and 75 grain BTHP bullets in her rifle. Duff explained, "I use the XTPs in everything I shoot, because they are extremely accurate and reliable. I use the 55-grain ammo for up close targets and out to 100 yards for 3-Gun. When I have to shoot anything further than that, I go to the 75 grain bullets."
Katie Harris won Overall High Lady in the Open Division and High Junior, using Hornady® 60 grain V-MAX™ bullets in her rifle. Harris said, "I like how super accurate the V-MAX ammo is out to 300 or 400 yards. I know I can rely on it to hit the hard stuff in matches." Harris used Hornady® 115 grain FMJ bullets in her 38 Super pistol, noting, "It's the only ammo that functions in my open gun. I love it and won't use anything else."
Keith Garcia finished eighth out of 236 competitors in the Tac Optics Division. Garcia has made it to the final in all four of the 3-Gun matches this year, shooting Hornady® 9mm 124 grain XTP® bullets in his pistol, Hornady® 75 grain Superformance® for the long-range
targets, and Hornady® 52 grain Match™ bullets for short-range rifle targets.
