The ELD-X was conceived as a match accurate hunting bullet. Each of Hornady’s characteristic accuracy-enhancing features – the super concentric AMP jacket, a streamlined secant ogive profile, and of course a boat tail – are included in the ELD-X. The ELD-X also showcases Hornady’s Heat Shield, a polymer tip which will not deform and lose its perfect symmetry when blasted by aerodynamic heating.
But a great hunting bullet can’t get by with a high 0.536 G1 ballistic coefficient alone. It must also deliver knockdown power at any range. Following high velocity impact the ELD-X retains up to 60 percent of its weight as its InterLock ring keeps its heavy jacket and core anchored together. Following low velocity impact its weight retention rate improves up to 90 percent, accompanied by large diameter expansion as the Heat Shield tip rams into the ELD-X’s underling nose cavity.
This round’s thrilling bullet is well supported by its select brass case, match grade Boxer primer, and minutely measured charge of propellant. Order this ammo and you’ll be a Precision Hunter too!
