Hornady® was founded in 1949 by J.W. (Joyce) Hornady in Grand Island, Nebraska when Joyce began manufacturing bullets for commercial and DIY reloaders. Hornady acquired the first of many surplus Waterbury Farrell assembly presses, installed it in a former auto body shop, and began production.

While the first year only garnered a whopping $10,000 (far below what Hornady had hoped for), the business quickly expanded in 1951. During the Korean War, Hornady struggled with material shortages, but rather than folding, the company earned government contracts manufacturing condenser cans and other miscellaneous products to stay afloat until 1958, when materials supply stabilized and ammunition sales soared. By 1958, the company had grown by leaps and bounds, requiring it to move to a larger, more efficient manufacturing plant; an 8,000 square foot plant with a 200-yard underground test facility.

On January 15, 1981, Joyce passed away in a freak plane crash. Today, Hornady is owned and operated by Joyce’s son, Steve Hornady, manufacturing a variety of quality target and hunting ammunition, as well as a selection of best-selling reloading equipment and components, favored by both professional and civilian reloaders and shooters.
