At HPR®, we pride ourselves in our American heritage. We proudly use the finest USA made components, and every round is meticulously inspected by US Citizens. From the outset, we set out to create jobs for Americans, and build custom hand load performance ammunition at competitive prices. We strive to be the leading innovator of center-fire ammunition for military, law enforcement, and civilians. Every load is developed for a specific purpose with a focus on consistency, accuracy, and even, in some cases, felt recoil. Each round is designed, manufactured, inspected and packaged to bring you a superior shooting experience and the confidence to dominate downrange.
When an aeronautical engineer who helped design the propulsion system for the F-22 Raptor, dubbed “the most advanced fighter jet in the world,” decides to manufacture ammunition, you can be certain that precision and safety protocols are exemplary by design. At HPR®, we believe we can never stop improving and innovating. Safety, consistency, and precision are of paramount importance throughout the manufacturing process. Every round is chamber gauged and hand inspected, and redundant quality control checks are second to none. Add Matt McLearn - the former head of development for Sig Arms, legendary gunsmith, and former IPSC World Champion shooter, a world class team of ballisticians, and load specific development, and you get unparalleled quality and precision. You can be confident that only the finest ammunition possible makes it into your magazine.
Every load we make is designed for a specific purpose. Our development team determines the optimum balance of velocity, accuracy, and in some cases even recoil, for each load. Rather than just push “hot loads” that travel faster but generally at the expense of accuracy, HPR® load specific development team carefully analyzes every load and ballisticians work toward a specific outcome. Take, for instance HPR® .380 load vs. .357. The .380 load was developed intentionally “light” in velocity to reduce felt recoil given the trend towards smaller, concealable .380’s that are harder to control. Conversely, you shoot a .357 because you want power. Our .357 load is deliberately stiff on velocity and utilizes a slow burning powder for smoother recoil.
