Team Hornady Shooter Max Michel Wins 5th USPSA National Title
Grand Island, NE –-(AmmoLand.com)- Returning to the hot and dry desert of Las Vegas, Nevada, Team Hornady Shooter, Max Michel, won the 2009 U.S. Practical Shooting Association National Championship for his fifth time with a winning score of 1,409 points.
Attacking 16 aggressively designed stages that required fast and accurate shooting, Max relied on Hornady’s 124 grain XTPTM bullets hand loaded for his custom 38 Super for a winning result.
When the scores were tallied, Max commented that he’s been using Hornady products for over 10 years because “it’s the most accurate round on the market today. Competitive shooting is my full time job that I train so hard for; I can’t afford to have any mishaps and for me Hornady is there each and every time.”
“Having the support of my family going into this match was important, but having Hornady as one of my sponsors providing me with quality products allows me to perform correctly and I’m able to focus entirely on the match itself.”
The XTP bullet’s profile is designed to deliver flawless function in a variety of handgun platforms, and the jacket extends forward so there’s no chance of bullet deformation on the feed ramp.
The XTP is purpose-built for semi-auto handguns and its hollow point design shifts the center of gravity rearward to provide the most stable flight possible; which translates to exceptional accuracy on the range.
