Description

The Heat Shield Tip creates the ideal meplat, with no tip deformation due to aerodynamic heating. High ballistic coefficients are achieved by using a bullet profile with a very low drag. The consistency and balance were achieved by the swaged lead core. AMP jacket design for maximum precision and concentricity.

In high BC bullets, conventional polymer tips melt in flight. Conventional bullet tip materials in streamlined, high BC bullets melt and distort, according to Hornady experts. Aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and accuracy degradation at extended ranges (400 yds and beyond), even though it is not a serious concern with modest BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets. Hornady identified a heat-resistant material and developed the patent-pending Heat Shield tip to counteract this effect. This ground-breaking new tip produces the perfect meplat (tip) with remarkably consistent results from one bullet to the next and from one batch to the next.

The Heat Shield tip resists aerodynamic heating and maintains its shape, resulting in a flawless meplat (tip) that never changes shape. The combination of a streamlined secant ogive with optimal boattail design, highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, and the patent-pending Heat Shield tip results in a very accurate, high BC match bullet. Doppler radar is used to measure ELD-Match bullet BCs, which are then corrected for typical air circumstances.
