Description

The Heat Shield Tip forms the perfect meplat; there is no tip deformation due to aerodynamic heating; the extremely low drag bullet profile delivers high ballistic coefficients; the swaged lead core provided uniformity and balance; and the AMP jacket design provides optimum concentricity and accuracy.

Conventional polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. Hornady engineers discovered that standard bullet tip materials melt and deform when used in streamlined, high BC rounds. Although it is not a serious concern with moderate BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets, aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and accuracy loss, especially at long ranges (400 yds or more). To counteract this effect, Hornady discovered a heat-resistant material and created the patent-pending Heat Shield tip. This groundbreaking new tip produces the optimum meplat (tip) with remarkably consistent results from bullet to bullet and lot to lot.

The Heat Shield tip resists aerodynamic heating and preserves its shape, resulting in a flawless meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. A streamlined secant ogive with optimal boattail design, highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, and the patent-pending Heat Shield tip combine to deliver a wonderfully accurate, high BC match bullet. Doppler radar is used to measure ELD-Match bullet BCs, which are then corrected for typical air circumstances.
