This ammunition is custom-graded at the factory and loaded to exacting standards to ensure correct ignition and consistent, match-winning, precise accuracy shot after shot. Handloads perform as good as or better than this. This ammo is brand new, non-corrosive, and comes in reloadable brass cases with a boxer primer.
In high BC bullets, conventional polymer tips melt in flight. Conventional bullet tip materials in streamlined, high BC bullets melt and distort, according to Hornady experts. Aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and accuracy degradation at extended ranges (400 yds and beyond), even though it is not a serious concern with modest BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets. Hornady identified a heat-resistant material and developed the patent-pending Heat Shield tip to counteract this effect.
This ground-breaking new tip produces the perfect meplat (tip) with remarkably consistent results from one bullet to the next and from one batch to the next. The Heat Shield tip resists aerodynamic heating and maintains its shape, resulting in a flawless meplat (tip) that never changes shape. The combination of a streamlined secant ogive with optimal boattail design, highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, and the patent-pending Heat Shield tip results in a very accurate, high BC match bullet. Doppler radar is used to measure ELD-Match bullet BCs, which are then corrected for typical air circumstances.
