Hornady's 6.5mm Creedmoor cartridge meets a revolutionary innovation in precision performance with these Extreme Long Distance (ELD) - Match rounds which will give you results out of your rifle like you've never seen before. The ELD - Match lineup uses an all-new Heat Shield polymer tip made from material that resists melting up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit while traveling downrange. Through study and testing using Doppler radar, Hornady learned that in-flight heat quickly overcomes the melting point of conventional polymers (350 degrees Fahrenheit) causes round deviation, drag, and lower ballistic coefficient performance. They set out to develop the heat resistant polymer tip in order to redefine precision rifle match ammunition. These ELD - Match rounds have an advantage over BTHP match ammo in that the polymer tip can be formed with a consistency and uniformity that isn't quite possible with copper. Every bullet has an AMP (Advanced Manufacturing Process) Jacket which ensures uniform thickness throughout the copper wall for unparalleled concentricity and accuracy.
Hornady's tests on their own rifles and equipment has shown groups measuring 4 inches at 930 yards. In addition to the use of ELD - Match bullets, these cartridges feature casings that are specially selected for uniformity and measured quality, powder charges that are specially measured for the proper pressure in the 6.5mm Creedmoor caliber, and reliably igniting primers.

I started my rifle break in Oct 3rd. Today the 6th I'm halfway there. I run an out of the box Ruger Precision rifle. Leupold vx 3i LRP 8.5-25X50MM GLASS. This ammo consistently puts rounds through the same hole @200. So far getting to the 100 round mark, 3 different match grade ammos. This particular Hornady round is Great Stuff.
I have never saved break in targets. I am saving every single one!!!
In my Tikka Tac A1, the 140 ELD seems to be the most consistent. Great ammo, kinda expensive per shot, but glad it's mostly available. I did find a few more online options that have the box price at $23 instead of $29 here. I should've asked if they match pricing here; I've only had great experiences with Luckygunner.
Like TBill said ---- this round is all I use for LRP. I too shoot a Surgeon - in a Cadex Defence chassis.... but also use this round in my NEMO ARMS XO.... it's so consistent! Missing is a waste of money -- so while this is a premium round - it delivers premium performance!

Q: I did not see it listed. Just curious, what's the BC for this type ammunition? Specifically, G1 & G7

A: Sure thing! According to Hornady it's G1 0.646 ; G7 0.326. They used a 24" test barrel to record this ammo's ballistic data.
