Product Information

Hornday's traditional line of bullets feature exposed lead tips for controlled expansion and hard-hitting terminal performance. Most have their pioneering secant ogive design — one of the most ballistically efficient profiles ever developed. Most feature Hornady's exclusive InterLock® design — a raised ring inside the jacket that is embedded in the bullet's core that keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy.

  • INNER GROOVES:  Strategically weaken the upper section of the jacket, ensuring consistent, controlled expansion, even at long range.
  • TAPERED JACKET:  Jacket thickness is precisely controlled for expansion at all velocities.
  • ONE-PIECE CORE:  Does not separate like two-piece divided cores. The InterLock® retains more mass and energy for deep penetration and large, consistent wound channels that ensure quick, clean kills.
  • CANNELURE:  Provides accurate and consistent crimping and also works with InterLock® ring to ensure the core and jacket remain locked during expansion.
  • INTERLOCK® RING:  The raised InterLock® ring is embedded in the bullet's core, ensuring the core and jacket are locked in one piece during expansion to retain mass and energy.

This is not loaded ammunition.

Great Hunting Bullets

By George G. on Feb 20, 2024
It's no small wonder these bullets have been in the Hornady line up for years. They are accurate and deadly on game animals as large as Elk. Don't let the bullet profile fool you, they are accurate and deadly at ranges beyond 300 yards. A tough and penetrating bullet.

160's in my 6.5 Creedmoor

By Dan W. on Feb 20, 2024
Super fast shipping as always from Grafs! The 160's will be used in an upcoming moose hunt. They shoot under a MOA from my Howa 1500.

Great bullet to replicate early military loads in the M94 Carbine.

Overall experiance.

By Mike R. on May 22, 2023
I have always had good response from customer service. They have always been very helpful, and every order has been delivered quickly, and never a mistake. I highly recommend them, and I will continue to use them in the future. Great company.

Hornady 6.5 160grn sp

By Robert B. on May 20, 2020
These bullets are perfect for my 6.5 Jap. They are accurate and don’t dimple my steel targets. Highly recomended.

Great bullet

By Lamar K. on Apr 04, 2020
I've used these on a 6.5x55 and they've been excellent. Now I'll try them on a 6.5 Creedmoor. I expect the same.

Perfect for Mannlicher reloads

By Tim N. on Mar 20, 2020
The shape and design of this bullet works perfectly in my 6.5 x 54 MS reloads allowing the rotary magazine to function compared to other bullets that are too short to work properly and rotate and reload with ease.

Perfect for 1896 Swedish Mauser

By David B. on Oct 30, 2019
Was looking to duplicate the original military load with 156 grain... LONG Roundnose style bullet. These work great in the super long throated Swedish Mausers. Used RL-22 powder at about 2300 fps. Graf's had them in stock and smooth sailing on the ordering 👍

Long Awaited!

By Patrick F. on Oct 03, 2019
My dad had a Swedish M-94 in 6.5 x 55mm Mauser. Our first rounds for that gun were a long Rnd. Nose from Norma. They shot like a Dream come true. I haven't had that kind of Accuracy since going to the more commonly available bullet in 6.5. I'm hoping to prove that these will give that rifle back what those bullets have taken away from that rifle.

Uniform weight and lengths

By Joshua S. on Oct 17, 2018
Haven’t had a chance to shoot any yet, plan to use these for my type 38 carbine chambered in 6.5x50. The weights and lengths of these bullets are very uniform and I ended up not even sorting these out. I’m pleased with this product so far.
Can’t give it five stars until I slam one into a deer.

Old School

By John R. on Sep 04, 2018
Wonderful for Moose in Alaskan timber, 1shot from 50 yards. Going to get more!

Military cartridges

By Karl E. on Nov 20, 2015
In my experience many military rounds work best with this heavier bullet.
6.5 Japanese and 6.5 Dutch have really shot well for me
with this. Would probably use it across the board of
calibers, but too hard to get the bullet (my only complaint).
