The Heat Shield® tip is immune to the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape.Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP® bullet jackets + Heat Shield® tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet.ELD® Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions.The new Heat Shield® tip creates the perfect meplat and outperforms BTHP bullets.
ELD® Match (Extremely Low Drag Match) bullets are technologically advanced, enhanced accuracy target bullets featuring Heat Shield® tips with the PERFECT MEPLAT (tip point) combined with numerous design features that deliver the highest-in-class ballistic coefficients, superior accuracy and extreme consistency from bullet-to-bullet, lot-to-lot.
All manufacturers’ conventional polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. During testing of what would become the ELD-X® hunting bullet, Hornady® engineers, using Doppler radar, discovered that conventional bullet tip materials were melting and deforming in flight, resulting in BC reduction and degradation of accuracy, particularly at extended ranges (400 yards +). To counter this effect, Hornady® identified a heat resistant polymer and developed the Heat Shield® tip that resists aerodynamic heating and creates the perfect meplat (tip). This revolutionary new tip technology led to the creation of the most advanced match bullets on the market — ELD® Match.
Superior accuracy and industry leading ballistic design has been achieved with the ELD® Match bullet. An optimum secant ogive and boattail design along with the Heat Shield® tip produce a bullet with the highest possible ballistic coefficient in its class. Verified by Doppler Radar, ELD® Match ballistic coefficients do not vary due to the integrity of the Heat Shield® tip. The bullets perform extraordinarily consistently with no BC degradation at extended range
