The Hornady ELD-X 6.5mm 264 143gr Bullet is a technologically advanced, match accurate, ALL-RANGE hunting bullet featuring highest-in-class ballistic coefficients and consistent, controlled expansion at all practical hunting distances.
At conventional ranges up to 400 yards, the Hornady ELD-X bullet is designed to continually expand throughout its penetration path. Upon impact the thin nose section of the bullet peels back and sheds material until it reaches the thick shank of the bullet jacket where the InterLock ring works to keep the core and jacket together. The remaining heavy shank of the bullet continues to drive forward and expand for extremely lethal results.
Upon contact at extended range (400+ yards), the Heat Shield Tip drives backward into the carefully designed nose cavity to begin the expansion process. At these lower velocities, ELD-X Bullets exhibit conventional expansion characteristics with a large mushroom and high retained weight ensuring deep penetration and large wound cavities.
