The ELD exhibits almost negligible drag thanks to its secant ogive profile, aerodynamic boat tail, and secant ogive geometry. Its polymer tip is also immune to air friction, thus assuring it doesn’t deform to spoil its trajectory.
This 308 Win round by Black Hills features the ELD-X. It is every bit as aerodynamic as the ELD, yet additionally offers devastating terminal performance for hunting. At high velocity impact within 400 yards the ELD-X’s InterLock ring promotes up to 60 percent weight retention to ensure a very deep wound channel. Over longer distances the ELD-X retains up to 90 percent of its weight as its Heat Shield tip jams inward to commence big terminal expansion.
This round’s bullet went from Hornady’s factory in Nebraska to Black Hills’ production facility in South Dakota, making it a true Midwestern endeavor. Black Hills’ Gold label 308 hunting ammo features precision tapered brass to promote the smoothest chambering, as well as matched primers and propellant for peak reliability and accuracy.
