The Hornady® 143 Grain ELD-X™ 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. 143 Grain 6.5MM ELD-X bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions.

With high velocity, 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. Upon low velocity, 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. This is not loaded ammunition.

    The Best Bullet on the Market Today!

    These are by for the best bullet on the market today, while other bullet manufacturers are happy to sell the bullets they designed in the 70's Hornady is innovating all the time to make the best bullets on the market. The ELDX line is a fantastic mid to long range hunting bullet that performs like a match grade bullet. I have personally used this bullet on dozens of hunts, (some long range competitions) every animal I have used them on is in my freezer!
