EXTREMELY LOW DRAG EXPANDING BULLETS WITH HEAT SHIELD™ TIP
Conventional polymer tips melt in flight!
Hornady ® engineers, using Doppler radar discovered that ALL commonly used
polymer tips are affected by aerodynamic heating - they melt and deform in
flight leading to both BC and accuracy loss. To counter this effect, Hornady
identified a heat resistant polymer and developed the Heat Shield™ tip. This tip
resists aerodynamic heating and creates the PERFECT MEPLAT. Combined with
its secant ogive profile, AMP® jacket and optimized boattail, the ELD-X™
bullet delivers flat trajectories, match accuracy and unparalleled lethality
at ALL practical ranges.
THE FIRST ALL-RANGE HUNTING BULLET - ELD-X.™
* Revolutionary Heat Shield™ tip forms the
* Doppler radar verified, best-in-class BCs
over entire trajectory.
* Streamlined secant ogive, AMP® jackets and
optimum boattail for match-accurate results
* InterLock® ring works to keep the core
and jacket together.
* Reliable, controlled expansion delivers
lethality at ALL practical distances.
