Product Information

338 Cal .338 225 gr CX™

The CX™ (Copper alloy eXpanding) bullet from Hornady represents the most advanced monolithic hunting bullet on the market. Its optimized design offers extended range performance, greater accuracy, high weight retention, and deep penetration.

  • MONOLITHIC COPPER ALLOY BULLET:  One-piece copper alloy won't separate and delivers devastating terminal performance, deep penetration, and 95% weight retention.
  • HEAT SHIELD® TIP:  The Heat Shield® Tip is made of a heat resistant polymer that resists aerodynamic heating and provides a consistently high BC for the bullet's entire flight path. The Heat Shield® tip also gives the bullet a perfect meplat (tip) for bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot consistency.
  • OPTIMUM GROOVE GEOMETRY:  The grooves on the CX™ bullet maximize aerodynamic performance while effectively reducing bearing surface and fouling.
  • NONTRADITIONAL OPTION FOR LARGE GAME:  Fully California compatible and appropriate for use in other areas that require nontraditional bullets, CX™ provides a great option for everything from medium-size to large game.

This is not loaded ammunition.

hornady 225 gr cx .338 bullet

By Christan M. on Feb 06, 2023
I bought these as a substitute for the Barnes TTSX of the same weight. Checking on an ohaus scientific scale, these weigh an honest 225 grains, whereas The Barnes are a little light The CXs average longer by .089".. I was unable to do a true comparison as I had to switch powders due to unavailability My velocity average was 3116 fps with the TTSX (80 gr RL22) and 3120fps with the CX (84.5 gr VV N165). The listed BC for the TTSX is ,514 and for the CX, .490. Accuracy for the TTSX was ,874" Center to Center at 200 Meters, and the CX did 1.171" C to C also at 200 Meters. Both are accurate enough for my needs. The 5th star will come if performance on game proves out
