Hornady Aborts Radio Controlled Shotgun Shell In Favor Of Other Products

After my previous prediction, most of this was a letdown:

If you don’t want to watch the 18 minute video above, here is what’s new:

  • Beam scale – What is this 1982? … Should I grow my hair into a mullet and buy an IROC Camaro?
  • LED light strip for reloading – Double yawn I could have had that years ago
  • Critical Defense .32 H&R Magnum – If it doesn’t come out of the barrel of a DEAGLE brand deagle, or a Glock I don’t give 2 shits about it.
  • Critical Defense .38 Special – See previous comment ^
  • Critical Defense .32 NAA – See previous comment ^
  • .50 Caliber Monoflex ML – hmmmmm .50 you say… maybe I could rig up a DEAGLE to fire it.
  • SST Light Shotgun Slug – Reduced recoil?  Pffffft operators live for recoil.  Pass.
  • Heavy Magnum Coyote Ammunition – I use .50 BMG on coyotes, head shots at 1000+ yards so I have no use for that.
  • Critical Defense .410 Triple Defense – K this is actually kind of cool, but it still won’t work in DEAGLES or Glocks.
  • Critical Defense .30 – I can’t hate on the M1 Carbine *slow clap*
  • Super Performance shotgun slug – HOLY SHIT did my RC shotgun shell just make an appearance!!!!?! Yes It did, but it was just a tease. :/
  • Critical Duty .45 +P – Great casting of the scumbag.   Hopefully he had Critical Doody loaded, and that cop took him out with his Critical Duty… ahha I slay myself.
  • American Whitetail ammo – What a feel good video.

And that’s that.  You can read about all these over on the Hornady new products section of their website.

I wish I would have saw the job opening for “BUZZWORD GUY” over at Hornady before they filled it.  That dude TM’d all sorts of crazy shit.  Triple this, Critical that, SuperOMGperformance!  Little did they know that my buzzword game is unfuckwithable, you guys have no idea so don’t test me.

Maybe next year Hornady can make my RC Shotgun Shell dreams come true.  A trick up their sleeve for SHOT Show perhaps?

All of these innovations are really in their wheelhouse.

I swear I will pistol-whip the next person that uses that ‘in my/our/their wheelhouse.’ When did that spring up? I’ve been hearing it constantly.

I prefer ammo that isn’t developed and manufactured by a brand which has a sexually suggestive name. Also, who uses .410 these days except Mark Wahlberg and other “wrappers?”

My phone read this to me in the car and it sounded like it was saying “Horndaddy.”

I have something that causes “adequate expansion, and 12 to 18 inches of penetration”.

I knew I wasn’t the only one who used .50 BMG on coyotes.
