Product Information


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.

Marvelous deer killrr

By Mike M. on Dec 25, 2020
I have never really shot many Hornady bullets until this year 2020. I built a 280AI SAMMI chamber with this bullet in mind. I do a bit of LR bean field shooting. So far 15 deer and 1 hog have been victimized by this bullet. Only 2 if those animals left the shot site, and they went 25 yards each. Good blood trails. All others dropped at the shot.
Only 1 bullet was recovered and it weighed 82 grains
Perfect roll back. If you push them in the 2900 range they are very effective.

Hornady ELD - X

By Randy S. on Feb 17, 2019
Hornady responds to competition from Berger by providing a hunting bullet with target bullet accuracy. These bullets do have a thin jacket and shot placement on game animals needs consideration before squeezing the trigger. These bullets are capable of bringing down just about any North American game.
