Bryan Litz, who is known as the founder of Applied Ballistics and the chief ballistician for Berger Bullets, was presented with this year’s National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Hathcock Award in June.
The Hathcock Award is presented to recognize an individual who has made significant contributions in operational employment and tactics of small arms weapons systems which impact the readiness and capability of U.S. military and law enforcement.
The NDIA’s Small Arms Committee selects the recipient in honor of the U.S Marine Corps sniper legend, GySgt. Carlos N. Hathcock II. Hathcock honorably served in both military and law enforcement communities and influenced sniper training programs across the country.
Previous recipients of the Hathcock Award include Todd Hodnett, Buford Boone and SGM Pete Gould (USA Ret.).
