Hornady® ELD-Match™ Bullets - 100 Pack
The Hornady® ELD-Match™ Bullets - Extra Low Drag bullets demonstrate the brilliance in Hornady’s engineering. 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 (400 yds +).
To counter this effect, Hornady identified a heat resistant polymer and developed the patent-pending Heat Shield tip. This revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip) with exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot.
The Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. A streamlined secant ogive with optimum boat-tail design, plus the highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, combined with the patent-pending Heat Shield tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet. ELD-Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions.
***Please note that these bullets come in packs of 100 with the exception of the .338 285-grain bullets which come in a pack of 50 bullets.
