Hornady Receives Golden Bullseye for 6mm ARC Ammunition

trHornady Receives Golden Bullseye for 6mm ARC Ammunition

Hornady® 6mm ARC has been named the 2021 Shooting Illustrated Ammunition Product of the Year as part of the National Rifle Associations Publications Golden Bullseye Awards.

The 6mm ARC began with a simple question: What can we do with today’s technology to maximize the performance of the AR-15 platform? After subsequently modeling and testing a variety of designs in different calibers, we were able to produce the most flexible cartridge possible within the limits of the AR-15 system.

“We are deeply honored to receive this award and we truly appreciate the recognition from NRA Publications” said Steve Hornady, President.

Now in their 19th year, the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest product available in the shooting sports. The winners are selected by a seven-member committee consisting of editors, graphic designers and veteran NRA Publications staff, representing more than a century of collective experience in the shooting and hunting industry.

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 offerings 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®
  • 6mm ARC 105 gr. BTHP Hornady BLACK®
  • 6mm ARC 108 gr. ELD® Match
