Product Information

ELD Match bullets are technologically advanced, enhanced accuracy target bullets featuring Heat Shield tips with the PERFECT MEPLAT (tip point) combined with numerous design features that deliver the highest-in-class ballistic coefficients, superior accuracy and extreme consistency from bullet-to-bullet, lot-to-lot.

All manufacturers 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.

Superior accuracy and industry leading ballistic design has been achieved with the ELD Match bullet. An optimum secant ogive and boattail design along with the patent-pending Heat Shield tip produce a bullet with the highest possible ballistic coefficient in its class. Verified by Doppler Radar, ELD Match ballistic coefficients do not vary due to the integrity of the Heat Shield tip. The bullets perform extraordinarily consistently with no BC degradation at extended range.  This is not loaded ammo.

I purchased these while trying out various bullets to do a load work up for my 308 large frame gas gun. Initially I found the 175gr SMK to shoot well, however I wasn't completely please with accuracy so thought I'd give the 178gr ELD-Ms a shot. My load workup used new Lake City brass, 210M primers, H4895, and a COAL of 2.805". I worked up to xxgr in .3gr increments. All the groups were sub-moa (which was a great sign), however 40.0 stacked 4 in the same hole and #5 was touching for a .47 MOA group. Since I've bought a few hundred more. This is definitely the bullet I'm going to stick with.

I switched to these 2 months ago from sierra 175 matchkings. I can seat these .005 off the lands and they still fit in my AI mags. These also have way better down range ballistics. And best of all they cost less.
