The ELD-X® (Extremely Low Drag - eXpanding) 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.
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.
Upon low-velocity 400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield® tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting conventional expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90% retained weight the bullet provides deep penetration and large wound cavities.
We recommend this bullet for general purpose hunting and especially for longer range hunting. This softer style bullet is not our first choice for the biggest coastal brown or polar bears, but this bullet will do very well for about everything else. The slightly lower minimum impact rating really helps extend the range capability.
This round is designed to fit and function through standard magazines and twist rates of 1:10" or faster. We can custom seat this bullet at no additional charge.
We measure each powder charge to within +/- .02 grains on our Autotrickler powder systems. We seat each bullet with Redding competition seat dies on our Forster Co-Ax single stage press. We load them one at a time! Each round is hand measured for consistency and placed into our hard plastic, twenty count boxes. Each box has a foam insert and neoprene strap to keep your rounds secure in the field. This is loaded ammunition.
