As a Hornady, this round benefits from so much. Each of its components has been fine-tuned to deliver the goods while you’re out in the wild. Hornady’s assembly and quality assurance protocol are first-order. Simply put, the Nebraskan company’s name is synonymous with high quality.
Nothing exemplifies that better than this round’s 143 grain Extremely Low Drag eXpanding projectile. Here is a bullet with every bell and whistle that improve accuracy which Hornady has at their disposal. The ELD-X’s secant ogive profile, tapered base, concentric AMP jacket, and sharp polymer tip all all accentuate the bullet’s ballistic coefficient to a towering 0.625. Better yet, the Heat Shield tip can’t warp no matter how furiously air friction might cook it, so it remains sharp and centered no matter what.
The ELD-X delivers crippling terminal performance inside its target over a wide range of velocities. Thanks to its InterLock ring which keeps its jacket and core anchored together, the ELD-X will retain as much as 60 percent of its weight during high velocity impact, ensuring a deep wound channel. At lower velocity impact (typically beyond 400 yards), the ELD-X’s tip functions to initiate massive expansion accompanied by as much as 90 percent weight retention! Near or far, the game you spy in your scope will be yours for the taking.
This ammo is packaged in a sturdy polymer field box for reliable storage and transport. Think a field box is only good for storing ammo? Tell that to our daughter, who has made a cozy little mansion for her Troll dolls out of them.
