Hornady takes extra time and care in the creation of their cases, and produce them in smaller lots. This is the only way to ensure each case meets their strict quality standards. Hornady cases offer reloaders excellent uniformity in case wall thickness, case weight, internal capacity and in the primer pocket and flash hole. They measure for consistently tight wall concentricity, and even run their cases through a pressure calibration test to ensure uniform case expansion. Finally, each case is hand-inspected.

What does this mean to you Proper seating of the bullet not only in the case, but in the barrel as well. Consistent charges and pressures. Ultimately, it means optimal velocity and repeatable accuracy.

The extra time and effort Hornady spends has another benefit you'll enjoy. They've built their cases so well, you'll be surprised how many more reloads you can get from them over most competitive cases. It's incentive to reload that case and try for an even more memorable shot next time around.

Some reloaders treat brass as a commodity something to be bought in bulk at the cheapest price possible without regard to quality. At Hornady, they treat brass as the foundation for what could be the most memorable shot of your life. Reload with a case you can count on every time. Look for the Hornady headstamp.

About the Manufacturer
"Ten bullets through one hole" was the philosophy of Joyce Hornady, the company's founder. This great idea of accuracy and perfection has continued from the first bullet made more than sixty years ago, right through today.

Like so many successful companies, Hornady Manufacturing was born out of one man's vision of a better product for his own use. Joyce Hornady was an avid shooter and needed a steady supply of good, accurate bullets. While commercially available bullets were usable, Joyce felt that better bullets could be made.

We continue to be one of the largest independent producers of bullets in the World. They sell bullets as separate components, loaded in Hornady Ammunition, and also to other ammunition companies to be loaded in their premium grade ammo. Their employees exhibit our products at trade shows and shooting matches across the country, and our product lines are represented to dealers and distributors by over 70 independent sales representatives.

Hornady Manufacturing has been the recipient of many industry awards and has also given generously within the community of Grand Island, where we make our home. Organizations supported include the United Way, the Platte River Charity Shoot, the Heartland Public Shooting Park, Hope Harbor, the Central-Plains Chapter of the American Red Cross, Stuhr Museum and the list goes on.

Hornady was the leading founder of the Hunting and Shooting Sports Heritage Fund, and they support or serve on The National Shooting Sports Foundation, Honored American Veterans Afield, the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute, The National Rifle Association, and many others. As a member of the shooting and hunting sports industry, Hornady realizes the need to give back to the sports that keep them in business and maintain our heritage..

The stature of Hornady Manufacturing Company within its industry has never been higher. Combine the best customer base with the best employees, throw in the family/management team running this business; it's hard not to be successful.



About the 45 ACP Cartridge
The .45 ACP(11.43×23mm or Automatic Colt Pistol), also known as the .45 Auto by C.I.P. or 45 Auto by SAAMI, is a cartridge designed by John Browning in 1904, for use in his prototype Colt semi-automatic .45 pistol and eventually the M1911 pistol adopted by the United States Army in 1911.

The U.S. Cavalry had been buying and testing various handguns in the late 1890s and early 20th century. The .45 Colt Single Action Army (SAA) had largely been replaced, even by some double-action versions of the same. The Army had fielded some double-action revolvers in .38 Long Colt. They determined the .38 caliber round was significantly less effective than the .45 Colt against determined opponents such as the warriors encountered in the Moro Rebellion of the Philippine–American War. The then-current issue rifle, the .30-40 Krag, had also failed to stop Moro warriors effectively;[3] the British had similar issues switching to the .303 British, which resulted in the development of the dum-dum bullet. This experience, and the Thompson–LaGarde Tests of 1904 led the Army and the Cavalry, to decide a minimum of .45 caliber was required in the new handgun. Thompson and Major Louis Anatole La Garde of the Medical Corps arranged tests on cadavers and animal remains in the Chicago stockyards, resulting in the finding that .45 was the most effective pistol cartridge. They noted, however, training was critical to make sure a soldier could score a hit in a vulnerable part of the body.
