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 AMP jacket design gave ideal concentricity and accuracy, while the swaged lead core provided uniformity and balance.

In high BC bullets, conventional polymer tips melt in flight. Hornady engineers discovered that standard bullet tip materials melt and distort in streamlined, high BC bullets. 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 yards or more). Hornady discovered a heat-resistant polymer and created the patent-pending Heat Shield tip to counteract this effect.

This ground-breaking novel tip produces the perfect meplat (tip) with remarkably 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.
