Hornady was founded by Joyce Hornady in 1949 and is currently run by his son Steve Hornady who took over after his father's death. Hornady makes target shooting and hunting rounds as well as high quality self-defense rounds. In 1990, the Hornady XTP (which stands for Extreme Terminal Performance) won the industry's Product Award of Merit from the National Association of Federal Licensed Dealers. Hornady also took part in the development of the .17 HMR and .17 HM2 rimfire cartridges, which are increasingly popular for small game and varmint hunting. Hornady has also worked with firearms maker Sturm and Ruger on the development of the new line of Ruger cartridges including the .480 Ruger, and the .375 Ruger.
Each round is brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, and reloadable.
