MATCH ACCURATE HUNTING BULLET Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP® bullet jackets + Heat Shield® tip combine for radically superior aerodynamic efficiency. DEVASTATING CONVENTIONAL RANGE PERFORMANCE With high velocity 0-365 m/0-400 yard impact, the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high InterLock® ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50-60% weight retention. BEST EXTENDED RANGE TERMINAL PERFORMANCE AVAILABLE Upon low velocity 365+ m/400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield® tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting conventional expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90% retained weight the bullet provides deep penetration and large wound cavities. ELD-X® bullets come factory-loaded in Precision Hunter™ ammunition (see page 6). ELD-X® The ELD-X® (Extremely Low Drag - eXpanding) bullet is a technologically advanced, match accurate, ALL-RANGE hunting bullet featuring highest-in-class ballistic coefficients and consistent, controlled expansion at ALL practical hunting distances. All manufacturers’ conventional polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. Hornady® engineers discovered that conventional bullet tip materials in streamlined, high BC bullets melt and deform. Although not a significant issue affecting moderate BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets, aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and degradation of accuracy, particularly at extended ranges (365+ m/400+ yards). To counter this effect, Hornady® identified a heat resistant polymer and developed the Heat Shield® tip. This revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip) with exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot. At conventional range (0-365 m/0-400 yards), the ELD-X® bullet is designed to continually expand throughout its penetration path. Upon impact, the thin nose section of the bullet peels back and sheds material until it reaches the thick shank of the bullet jacket where the InterLock® ring works to keep the core and jacket together. The remaining heavy shank of the bullet continues to drive forward and expand for extremely lethal results. IMPACT VELOCITIES: 30 Cal. 13 g/200 gr. ELD-X® 549 m/s 1800 fps 810 m/s 2660 fps AARON DAVIDSON Aaron took this excellent sheep with the 7mm 175 gr. ELD-X bullet. "This sheep was the second in a pair my brother Mike and I took at over 732 meters. The penetration and wound cavities were perfect!" JÖRN ALPERS Jörn Alpers from Germany dropped this red stag in the Highlands of Scotland with 6.5 Creedmoor 143 gr. ELD-X Precision Hunter ammunition at 160 meters. DAVE FULSON At the SAAM precision school, Dave pulled off his longest shot to date, 50,8 cm plate at 1.143 meters "The ELD-X is the most accurate bullet I have ever used."
