History of Hornady Ammo

Joyce Hornady sold his first bullet in 1949, a .30 caliber Spire Point weighing 150 grain. He was using a surplus bullet assembly press in a rented garage, where his company was born from his desire to build a better product that he could use himself – because first and foremost, Joyce was a shooter. His company would grow to become a force in the ammunition and reloading markets. Hornady Manufacturing grew rapidly during its first few years, increasing sales by 300 percent by the second year.

The Origins of Hornady Manufacturing

It all began with Hornady Sporting Goods Company, a business centered around baseball bats, bicycles, team uniforms and the like. When Joyce went to the bank for his first business loan to expand into ammunition, the bankers were confused. Bullets? For reloaders? That wasn’t a business model with any future, he was told. But he went ahead anyway, partnering with Vernon Speer, a name familiar to many ammunition and shooting aficionados. Their first foray into the world of ammunition was a machine that converted spent .22 rimfire cartridges into bullet jacket and then full rounds.

Hornady Bullets and Hornady Reloading

During World War II, Hornady’s founder, like many Americans, had to make due because of wartime shortages. These shortages led to the discovery that became the engine of Hornady’s business. He was able to take a .22 rimfire cartridge case and transform it into a bullet, which could then be loaded into centerfire ammunition for varmint shooting.

Hornady saw opportunity because while the market was flooded with surplus ammunition, virtually none of it was suitable for hunting. With this in mind, he began manufacturing a .30 caliber, 150-grain Spire Point on a Waterbury Farrell out of a former auto body shop. During the company’s first year, they sold a scant $10,000 worth of ammunition. However, while it would be several years before they were able to break even, sales tripled the next year and the company’s staff grew to four.

Above all else, the goal was on quality, and the founding Hornady wanted a shooter to be able to put “ten bullets through one hole” with his ammunition. This goal belies Hornady’s dual shooting lineage. First, he was a shooter of both game and targets. Later, he acted as a marksmanship instructor during the Second World War due to being too old for active duty service. It was the latter experience that tipped him off to the need for accurate, reliable ammunition for the United States military. The ammunition of World War II was better suited for close quarters than long-distance rifle work.

Business was looking up for Hornady Manufacturing – until the Korean War, which created unanticipated shortages of important raw materials. But rather than give up and let the company fold, Hornady won contracts for producing alternative products not associated with ammunition, including aluminum hearts for bracelets and condenser cans for the U.S. government. Once the war ended, the materials that Hornady had used for the cans and the technology he developed to manufacture them were applied to form ultra-thin copper jackets for varmint bullets.

Hornady Ammo Ballistics Testing

In 1958, Speer and Hornady split, with the former focusing like a laser on .30 caliber rounds. Local venture capitalist Fred Abrahamson gave Hornady a much needed infusion of capital for growth. Hornady moved to an 800-square-foot plant (now a 145,000-square-foot facility) in Grand Island, Nebraska, built specifically for the purpose of manufacturing ammunition and where the original press employed is still in use today. Joyce added a 200-yard underground range so he could perform onsite quality testing of his products without interference from the weather.

Hornady Manufacturing continued their pace of rapid growth and expansion into the 60s and 70s – with their ballistics lab supporting U.S. Army ballisticians in their experimentation of aerodynamically efficient bullet designs, eventually leading to the adaptation of the secant ogive. This later became the Hornady bullet signature profile and is now used almost exclusively for all bullets made by Hornady.

Hornady acquired a number of erstwhile competitors along the way. Acquisitions of Hornady Manufacturing include Pacific Tool Company, West Coast Shot Company, and Frontier Ammunition. These were later incorporated into a single entity with Hornady Manufacturing, with new names like Hornady Custom Ammunition and Hornady Tool Company. During this reorganization, the company came into a dispute with one of its partners and began manufacturing all cartridge cases in house.

Joyce Hornady’s Death and the Future of Hornady Ammunition

Joyce Hornady's death dealt a severe blow to the company. In January of 1981, along with lead engineer Edward Heers and customer service manager Jim Garber, Hornady died in an airplane crash on the way to the SHOT Show. The Hornady family stepped forward to lead the company, and they soon began producing their cartridge cases in house, now led by Steve Hornady, who is also a member of the NRA’s board. The younger Hornady was scheduled to be on the plane, but had to miss the trade show to care for his wife while she recovered from surgery. Today, they enjoy a reputation for manufacturing some of the best brass available.

While the company is very much a family affair (Steve’s son Jason is the Vice President), members of the family are required to work outside of the company for ten years before they are even allowed to interview for a position. Jason took a 50-percent pay cut to come to work for his father after a lucrative career in outdoor sales. While family is a priority, quality is even more so.

    Have run 220 rounds through my Original Henry, flawless performance. Like that they are made in USA.

  • RazorUSMC said:

    Bought this ammo for a Run N Gun competition, it worked falsely as it should. I reload my own but with the short notice of this shoot I did not have the time to reload my own. I have some to trust Hornady products as I use there Lock N Load AP Ammo plant press. This ammo was great and was super quiet with my 10.5" SBR I will be getting some more soon so I have the brass to save this time.

  • RD said:

    I hunt with 143gr ELD-X and sight in my Tikka Veil with them, but when I want to see what it will really do I shoot these match grade cartridges. There's a difference. Very cool ammo.

  • jlr said:

    killed several deer and three large hogs using this ammo in 270

  • j.r. said:

    i might use it this season and see how it does

  • Rusty said:

    I shot a 340lb mule deer with the 143gr ELD-X. He walked in a tight circle and fell over. These bullets hit where you point them and hit hard. They're all I shoot on big game.

  • BT said:

    Ammo performes as required! Flat shooting, punching holes right through some coyote. Using thermal, this ammo was putting down 1/8" groups.

  • 5bites said:

    I used this ammo for the first time this year in my 6.5 Creedmoor I shot a buck at 200yrds. He was dead before hid head hit the ground never seen anything like it. I hunted with a 30/06 before this and deer never went down that fast. This ammo is great.

  • Nightstalker said:

    I am a depredation hunter for deer and hogs I have shot hundreds of deer and many hogs. If using a silencer as I do this ammo has cycle without jam or misfire up to 200 rounds in a 5 hour period. Best Ammo for a 6.5 Creedmoor I have ever used.

  • James said:

    I hunted in Africa with this ammo and it is awesome. Every animal dropped in it's tracks. As close to a custom load as you can get over the counter. I'm going back and use same gun and ammo.

  • Thomas said:

    I've shot deer with these and so far only one deer has moved around in the same spot he fell but only for a few minutes, never got up again.

    love this Hornady 45 Long Colt.

  • OldNavy said:

    This ammunition was dead-on accurate at 45 yards. However, the THX tip added a small amount of additional length such that every round would jam in attempting to cycle into the chamber of my Henry .45LongColt lever-action rifle. Shorter, hollow point ammunition had no problems.

  • Matt said:

    Shot it in my Desert Eagle and it was spot on.

  • Hans said:

    The ammo cycled perfect and shot very very clean!!

  • bkfrompa said:

    High quality ammo from a well-known manufacturer. Consistent feed and powder loading. Price from Ammo.com was best found on the Internet.

  • Trained Observer said:

    My Savage 110 is my first sub-MOA gun out of the box and it was pulled off using the Hornady 143gr ELD. I tried a few other garden variety ammo makers including the Nosler, Winchester and some exotics, but none performed like the Hornady.

  • Popper said:

    Best bullet available for 6.5cm

  • Coonhunter said:

    Love it

  • BPM said:

    Love my 45/70 for accuracy and knockdown power.

  • Big Poppa said:

    A super accurate round. And it is a game Slayer. Great ammo for Bullseye Shooting to lots of fun

  • CalvinMD said:

    I use my 300grain HP reloads to 150yds But now with this ammo, which my Marlin 1895 loves to drill sub 3/4” groups with and still holds 3.5” at 300yds and the hold over is barely 8” with my rifles zero set @ 3” high @ 100yds. This load has already allowed me to just poleaxe large hogs out at 300 and dominate my home clubs lever gun silouhette shoots, speaks of phenomenal performance out of the old warhorse. Never go hunting without this ammo and rifle coming along..!! Try some, you’ll love it!!!
