Product Information

ELD® Match (Extremely Low Drag 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.

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 Heat Shield tip produce a bullet with the highest possible ballistic coefficient in its class.

  • BEST-IN-CLASS BCS:  The Heat Shield® tip is immune to the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape.
  • DELIVERS THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF ACCURACY AND CONSISTENCY.:  Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP® bullet jackets + Heat Shield® tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet.
  • ACCURATE, DOPPLER RADAR VERIFIED BCS:  ELD® Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions.
  • THE PERFECT TIP!  The new Heat Shield® tip creates the perfect meplat and outperforms BTHP bullets.

This is not loaded ammunition.

This bullet flies really well. It's super accurate and when paired with the Hornady 4DOF software it hits exactly as advertised. Thank you Hornady for being focused on the long range community, and thank you Grafs for being the best supplier out there.

Great bullet at a fair price. Fast shipping. Graf and Sons is top-notch!!

140 eldm

Excellent groups and consistent hits out to 1k

Great bullet!

By Tyler W. on May 04, 2023
I have used this bullet in 6.5 Creed and it has preformed great. Currently I am going to see how they run in 264 Win Mag. Hopefully I'll see some good results as I have come to expect nothing less from the ELD-M line from Hornady.

Excellent Performance

By Gregory D. on Apr 27, 2023
I ran these in a ladder test and once I found the node I was able to shoot 1/2 moa groups consistently. Needless to say I purchased a few more boxes.

Hornady 168gr 308 bullets

By Erik M. on Mar 20, 2023
I was glad to see that these bullets were in stock at Graf and Son. With their one price shipping their prices are very competitive. These are the only bullets I use in my Creedmoor and found them to be consistent from lot to lot.

perfect target bullets

By Richard M. on Dec 05, 2022
buy them all and send them to me lol

Next step up from BTHP

By Jon S. on Jul 16, 2020
These were my next load after getting good results from Hornady’s BTHP’s. I recommend both bullets but I think these are really the go-to bullet for PRS and LR shooting in 260 and 6.5 Creed.

The gold standard!

By Jason T. on May 11, 2020
When it comes to prs, these ARE the gold standard. Finding the right powder and get the accuracy you need for serious competition!

Match Load

By Bill B. on Oct 09, 2019
140gr ELD-Ms are my go to match load for PRS. I've shot these exclusively now for almost 3 years in my match rifle and there are several benefits: accuracy, consistency, and easy to load. These bullets are relatively jump intolerant, meaning the entire first 2 years I reloaded for 6.5 Creedmoor I loaded all my cartridges to 2.815" and ran with it and still printed groups that were below 1/2 MOA out of my Tikka with the factory barrel.

A few months ago, I replaced the barrel with a Rock Creek prefit from Patriot Valley Arms. For this barrel I did a 10-shot Satterlee test and set the bullets to 0.020" off the lands. After finding the flat spot, I loaded up 50 rounds in the node and proceeded to print 0.35 MOA groups fairly consistently. At matches I've taken my load out beyond 800 yards with impeccable performance.

Taking into consideration that these bullets are priced significantly cheaper than other competing brands and perform just as well if not better - I highly recommend 140 ELD M bullets.

Nothing to add...

By Perry H. on Jun 04, 2019
Takes time to work up the right load for your rifle, but these take the meplat variable out of the process. So far, very impressive results.

Must have ELD-M

By Robert D P. on May 30, 2019
This eld-m is very consistent. Hits MOA sized steel from 547-1100 yards when I do my part.

There is no better precision bullet

By Phillip L. on Apr 17, 2019
Whether it be a Creedmoor or a Swede, (probably a JAP is if wasn't for the goofy chamber and forget about Carcanos that loose 300 ft/sec after the first shot) there is no better bullet. Period. Several shooters at my range, including myself, have purchased and traded/tried Sierra MKs, Sierra PHs, Sierra green tips, Hornady HPBT Matches, and Berger (embraced by the name branding country club finger sandwich crowd). ELDs provide the lowest MOA of all of them. Period. Go ahead...prove me wrong. And, prove the rest of the above reviewers wrong, as well.

Need to have

By Allan B. on Feb 19, 2019
Always have good results with this bullet. I don't use any other bullet but hornady.

Hornady 6.5 ELD 140 gr.

By Charles N. on Feb 07, 2019
Shooting one half MOA groups at 100 yards with these. Have shot 3 shot x 3 inch groups at 900 yards. These bullets are awesome. I am buying more! Using Tikka TAC-A1 rifle. Great combination.

Hornady 6.5 ELD 140 gr.

By Charles N. on Feb 07, 2019
This bullet is awesome. It shoots 1/2 MOA groups at 100 yards. I am able to hit metal plates at 900 and 1100 yards with these. Really like these ELD's from Hornady.

By KEVIN S. on Jan 22, 2019
Appear to be consistent. More accurate than the A-Max in my rifle. Not as accurate as the 142gr SMK, (yet). Still working up load for this bullet.

Accurate round

By Ernesto I. on Jan 02, 2019
So far this is the most accurate bullet in my 6.5 creed averaging .5 or less @ 100 yards with my savage 110 tactical using H 4350. Highly recommend.

Good bullet, high BC and easy load development

By Albert C. on Dec 14, 2018
I've been loading these in 6.5 creedmoor and I'm very happy with them. Some Hornady bullets in other calibers have been problematic for me, but these have worked well and at the price Grafs has on them right now it is a no-brainer. Get some.


By Don Y. on Nov 26, 2018
These load and shoot great, i can trust them to put the groups together as long as i do my part

Best in it's class

By Al R. on Aug 14, 2018
'This is one of Hornady's best creations. I get wonderful results with this bullet. Most accurate I've found and I won't buy a different bullet with the results I've got with this one on the target range.

Accurate,again and again

By Russell B. on Aug 13, 2018
These bullets are one of the few that perform at the highest level of accuracy. At a very reasonable cost, load development doesn't break the bank, and finding an accuracy node isn't hard to do. Sometimes finding these are difficult, but worth the inconvenience.


By JASON M. on Aug 09, 2018
Began shooting 140 ELDM recently and was pleasantly surprised just how consistent and accurate these are. Pulled a sample of 20 bullets out of the box and measured from the base to the ogive and found less than 0.001" difference. These bullets are very jump tolerant and made load development a snap. I was able to find a sub-half-minute load for my rifle in under 30 rounds. I put a load together just 2 days before a match and ended up winning the match which was a PRS style match with targets out to 600 yards. I was able to ring a 1" target at 600y consistently with the load using these bullets. Very pleased with the results and will be purchasing these in bulk and trying in my other rifles as well.
