I've seen Hornady steel jacketed ammo, but I've never seen steel cases from Hornady. Is this something new??

Yea apparently it's for affordable competition rounds, they shot all of them went bang and hit the target but the sounded different and they didn't feel powerful, they were hollow points though, no real complaints but I do prefer the white box FMJ which i get twice as much of for the same price. Budget Hornady rounds, not too shabby but not my first choice.

Sounds like great practice ammo, though.

They would be good for recoil sensitive shooters.

Call me dense, but why do they need to make an HP for competitive shooting?

Hollow Point. I've done a little competitive shooting, ball was fine, and the powder charge took down steel targets.

Other than fast followup, hence the weaker charge, I don't see the benefit of competition hollow points...

True, neither do I.

HP bullets use less lead and jacket, and are cheaper to mass manufacture.
