You won’t find a huge selection of 280 Ackley Improved ammunition on the market. We’re sure that’s hardly breaking news to a 280 AI enthusiast such as yourself, but here’s the silver lining: thanks to Hornady, you don’t have to spend one second handloading in order to witness the stellar accuracy and stopping power of the ELD-X bullet in person!

This round’s 162 grain bullet is match accurate. Its polymer tip is the Heat Shield, which weathers intense aerodynamic heating without forfeiting its sleek and perfectly pointed profile. The Heat Shield is backed by Hornady’s outstandingly concentric Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket, as well as a boat tail that is optimized for the bullet’s weight, length and caliber.

It all pays off. According to Hornady, this round’s 2,850 fps muzzle velocity (24” barrel) yields a 0.631 G1 (0.318 G7) ballistic coefficient: -6.9” drop at 300 yards after clearing a 200-yard zero (1.5” sight height). The great P.O. Ackley himself would approve of those stats!

The ELD-X is deadly following close- and long-range impact alike. Within 400 yards, its thick jacket shank and InterLock ring effectively retain no less than 50% of the bullet’s total weight. Outside of 400 yards, the ELD-X couples a wide-diameter mushroom with no less than 85% weight retention.

Once you’ve fired all of Hornady’s Precision Hunter ammo, you’ll still have the Nebraskan company’s best brass cases to do your own handiwork on. Order today and keep the 280 AI legend alive and well!
