Strangely absent from Hornaday’s 2012 new product teaser video: a warning that a charging elephant will be shot to its knees and jackrabbits will explode in a cloud of blood. OK, the elephant never had a credit card and it was only one rabbit. Another missing element: their new Vintage Match ammo. It’s not match ammo from the time when sideburns got their name or trenches raced to the sea or Stalingrad stumbled. Just kinda like that. “Vintage Match ammunition is built to replicate the original military performance specifications unique to wartime rifles . . .
With the advent of the CMP Vintage Rifle and Vintage Sniper Matches, Hornady Vintage Match ammunition was developed with the match shooter in mind. It provides superior quality off-the-shelf ammunition for the shooter who is looking for a match grade alternative to surplus or hand-loaded ammunition.
Not a big market, statistically. But large enough, and grateful, one imagines.
