Product Information

Accuracy and consistency is the foundation of Hornady® Precision Hunter™ factory loaded ammunition. Great care has been given by Hornady® engineers to develop superior match accurate hunting loads that allow the ELD-X™ bullet to achieve its maximum ballistic potential. Propellants used in the Precision Hunter™ ammunition line are clean burning, consistent capacity and minimal run out. Propellant and primer combinations are carefully selected to provide the most consistent shot to shot results possible regardless of temperature. This attention to detail provides the highest levels of accuracy and performance uniformity for the most demanding and diverse hunting situations.

Featuring the radically superior ELD-X™ bullet with patent-pending Heat Shield™ tip, Precision Hunter™ is the ideal load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges.



  • Best-in-class BCsVerified by Doppler radar, the Heat Shield™ tip defines 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 + patent pending 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 available
    Upon low velocity, 400+ yard impacts, Heat Shield™ tip drives backward into bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting expansion with a large and 85-90% retained weight the provides deep penetration and large cavities. Available as component bullets or in factory loaded Precision Hunter™ ammunition.

Fantastic ammo

By Justin M. on Jun 17, 2024
I ordered a custom rifle in this caliber. When I went to pick it up, the gunsmith who built it had us shoot at steel targets from 200-1000 yards, using this ammo. I had never shot that far before, but with his help, a good rifle, and this ammo, the steel was rung!

Hornady builds the best factory ammunition that I have ever found and the 143 Gr. ELD 6.5 Creedmor is no exception. Extremely accurate in my Christensen arms Mesa and a great expanding bullet.

This ammunition shoots very well in my Bergara West Ridge rifle . Consistently groups sub moa at 100yds. Very happy with my purchase

Hornady 6.5 Creedmoor 143 gr. ELDX

By J Brooks M. on Jul 03, 2020
I've read articles both good and bad about the 6.5 creedmoor. I finally decided to try it myself and I think it might just be the best whitetail caliber today. Using the Hornady 143 gr. ELDX I shot three deer last year. two were 8 pts. that went maybe 25 yds. and the third was a doe that fell where she stood.

Very accurate round. Will shoot one ragged hole 3 shot groups at 100yds. Best performing round I have tried yet.

Hornady 6.5 creedmoor 143 ELDX

By Charles W. on Jan 17, 2019
This is great match grade hunting ammunition. It is the most accurate and consistent ammo I have found for this rifle. It has an average muzzle velocity of 2630 out of my 22" barrel Ruger Predator. Have taken a whitetail at 125 yards and a wild hog at 200 yards. Both dropped in their tracks. Have also shot targets out to 500 with sub-MOA groups.

Hornady Precision Hunter ammo

By Paul B. on Nov 23, 2018
The Hornady Precision Hunter line of ammo is the best factory ammo that I have found. It shoots great in every rifle that I have fed it to. I get very consistent velocities and great accuracy. That’s in 3- 6.5 Creedoor’s, 2- 7mm Rem Mags, and a 280 Rem. You can’t go wrong!
