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.
This bullet makes a great solution to your long range hunting application. High BC helps retain energy and a softer skin helps ensure good mushrooms at longer distances when velocity is falling off. Custom seating depths on request for rifles with longer magazines. This can easily be customized to your custom rifle build. This round is designed to funtion through standard short action magazines and would also do well with custom medium length builds. Hornady recommends a 1:8.5" twist or faster. COL to fit SAAMI spec rifles will be set at 2.820" and will can custom seat out to about 2.950" overall for rifles with modified magazines and standard cut chambers. Please specify which length you want.

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.
