HORNADY 338c (.338) 230gr BULLET ELD X 100/BX
The ELD-X® (Extremely Low Drag - eXpanding) 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.
- BEST-IN-CLASS BCS: Verified by Doppler radar, the Heat Shield® tip is immune to the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain the highest-in-class BC over its entire trajectory.
- MATCH ACCURATE HUNTING BULLET: Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP® bullet jackets + Heat Shield® tip combine for radically superior aerodynamic efficiency.
- DEVASTATING CONVENTIONAL RANGE PERFORMANCE: 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.
- BEST EXTENDED RANGE TERMINAL PERFORMANCE AVAILABLE: 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.

338 bullets are getting harder to get in general, ordered 2 boxes on a trial run for my 338 win mag, and 33 nosler.. so far csn stack em onto of each other at 200 yards. Much better than the ab's I had . Can't wait to see what it does on elk next month
American owned and made

Good price for a modern projectile and its American made!

very accurate bullet at a good price. although i have had issues with the jacket separating from the core on impact on large animals like elk does not retain weight. which is needed for better penetration would like to see Hornady address this issue.
Made for the 338 Win Mag

Hornady is spot on with these bullets. I have shot many of the eld line bullets in other calibers and they are my go-to bullets now. The quality control is top notch and the price can’t be beat! These 230gr pills are perfect for bringing life back to my 338 Win Mag. I used to shoot custom turned copper bullets to get long range performance from my 338WM, now I don’t have to fight for availability or pay the excessive costs. I’ll be shooting my 338WM much more now.
