Conventional polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. Hornady engineers discovered that conventional bullet tip materials in streamlined high BC bullets melt and deform. Although not a significant issue affecting moderate BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and degradation of accuracy particularly at extended ranges (400 yds +). To counter this effect Hornady identified a heat resistant polymer and developed the patent pending Heat Shield tip. This revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip) with exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot. The Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. A streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design plus the highly concentric AMP bullet jackets combined with the patent pending 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.

This ammunition is custom-grade from the factory loaded to stringent specifications to guarantee proper ignition and provide consistent match-winning pinpoint accuracy shot after shot. Performs as well or better than handloads. This ammunition is new production non-corrosive in boxer primed reloadable brass cases.
