HORNADY 6.5MM (.264) 143gr BULLET ELD X 100/BX
The 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.
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.
At conventional range (0-400 yards), the 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.
Available as component bullets or in factory loaded ELD-X Precision Hunter ammunition, ELD-X bullets are "heavy caliber" and designed for maximum ballistic coefficients, the highest levels of accuracy, consistency and extreme lethality at ALL practical hunting distances. This is not loaded ammunition.

Great hunting bullet

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.

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

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.

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.

These are the most consistant bullet i have paired up with H4350.

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.
