Dave Emary retires from Hornady

    Emary described his job at Hornady as a mix of problem solving, keeping production going and researching new products. Although he has retired from Hornady, he's still using many of those skills in a new job at a familiar place — as director of engineering at the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center.
    Fans of Hornady products will quickly recognize the names of ammunition lines such as Critical Defense®, Precision Hunter™ and LEVERevolution®, or cartridges like the 6.5 Creedmoor and 17 HMR, but those are just a few of the dozens Emary worked on after being hired as bullet/ammo lab manager in 1994.


    I know a lot of people that use Hornady products developed by Mr. Emary, especially the .17 HMR and 6.5 Creedmoor. It’ll be interesting to see who takes his place, and what happens.
