Introducing the 2016 Hornady ELD-X Bullet

Introducing the 2016 Hornady ELD-X Bullet

The Hornady ELD-X 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.

At conventional range (0-400 yards), the Hornady 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.

Upon contact at extended range (400 + yards), the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the carefully designed nose cavity to begin the expansion process. At these lower velocities, the Hornady ELD-X bullet exhibits conventional expansion characteristics with a large mushroom and high retained weight ensuring deep penetration and large wound cavities.


The avid reloader will be glad to know the Hornady ELD-X bullet is available now with a starting price of $48 per 100/box.


The Hornady ELD-X bullet is built for all shooting distances.
