Product Information

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.

Still my favorite bullet for the Creed and PRC. It just flat out shoots and kills. Still have not experienced a jacket separation. Grafs is a great place to order from.

The best ever!

143 ELD-X

I use these for my 6.5 creedmoor. I find they pattern well using superformance. Been having trouble finding them at our local shops so glad graf and sons had them.

I've used on African Plains game as well as white tail deer

I've hunted 3 times in Africa with this bullet 143 grain ELD-X in 6.5. I have never had to shoot an animal twice nor has my wife. No tracking just follow the blood and tracks to the animal 100 yards max with 3 DRT. I've shot blue wildebeest, Gemsbuck, impala and nyala with it. I would not use this bullet on anything tougher than a Blue Wildebeest. I shot a Eland with the 212 grain ELD-x and the Jacket was just too thin for that tough of an animal when going through bone. I would shoot and Elk with the 30 cal 212 grain ELD-X.

I shoot these out of my Bergara chambered in 6.5 ‘moor. Very accurate and price isn’t bad either for what you’re getting.

Great hunting bullet

By Bill R. on Dec 02, 2019
I've used these 6.5 143 eldx bullets to take Auodad, white tail, antelope and elk. They've shot very well out of all my 26 calibers (260 rem, 6.5cm, 6.5prc) usually turning in sub 1/2 moa groups. They perform well on game from close up to far out. If you're looking for a match grade bullet that you can hunt with, look no further.

Hornady 143 X

Great bullet! Not to heavy and not to light. Can't wait to take them hunting.

Great Bullets

By Gary H. on May 01, 2019
These have performed very well for me using IMR 4350 and IMR 4451. I haven't shot any game with them, but I am excited to see what they will do this fall.

143 gr. ELD-X bullets.

By Mark L. on Mar 06, 2019
Truly one of the best bullets out there. Many manufacturers have bullets of similar characteristics and accuracy. These work excellent with xx.x gr. VVO N-160 powder. 2700 fps. Depending on the brass this load is slightly to moderately compress for consistent burn.

It works

By Allan B. on Feb 19, 2019
These are the most consistant bullet i have paired up with H4350.

Great Experience

By Alex Q. on May 16, 2017
This is the only projectile I've loaded thus far for my Savage 10, but I'm extremely pleased. I'm able to consistently achieve .5 moa groups with these rounds behind IMR 4451. I've also manged to clover leaf with these projectiles on occasion out of my stock Model 10. I can't say anything bad about these projectiles.
