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.
The ELD line of bullets from Hornady make an excellent choice for the long range hunter. These bullets have very high BC numbers and will still mushroom when they get there after velocities drop off. These bullets transfer their energy quickly after impact and often do not exit the animal.
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. Twenty (20) rounds per box.
