Hornady ELD Match 140 grain 6.5mm (264 Diameter)
Hornady ELD Match 140 grain 6.5mm (264 Diameter) replaces the very popular AMAX. Regular 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. However, aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and loss of accuracy at extended ranges (400 yds +). In order to counter this effect, Hornady identified a heat-resistant polymer and developed the patent-pending Heat Shield tip. Because this revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip), these bullets have exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot.
Most importantly, the Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating. It also retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. Furthermore, the streamlined secant ogive with optimum boat-tail design, plus the highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, combined with the patent-pending Heat Shield tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet. Nice! In addition, Hornady ELD Match 140 grain 6.5mm (264 Diameter) BCs are measured with doppler radar.
Lastly, Arm or Ally has a great selection of brass. We carry once-fired brass from indoor ranges or select military bases. Also, we carry brand new brass! Starting with brands from Hornady, Lapua, Winchester, and Nosler are a perfect compliment to a terrific bullet. Get shooting!
