300 RCM 178 gr ELD-X™ Precision Hunter™
by Hornady Ammunition and Bullets

Hornady ELD-X® (Extremely Low Drag eXpanding) feature the highest ballistic coefficient and the best controlled expansion at the full range of nominal hunting distances. Though some tipped bullets are known to melt and deform due to aerodynamic heating, ELD-X bullet will not due to the advance polymer used in the construction. ELD-X bullets use the proprietary InterLock® ring in the bullet to keep the lead core and the copper jacket together for improved weight retention at ranges from 0-400 yards. Due to its conventional expanding design, and weight retention between 50-60%, the resulting wound cavities are highly lethal at all practical hunting distances.

Never compromise at any distance! Accuracy and terminal performance are the cornerstones of Hornady® Precision Hunter® factory loaded ammunition. Great care has been given by Hornady engineers to develop superior, match­-accurate hunting loads that allow the


bullet to achieve its maximum ballistic potential. Propellants used in the Precision Hunter® ammunition line are clean burning and loaded to uniform capacity for consistent shot to shot results regardless of temperature. This attention to detail provides the highest levels of accuracy and performance uniformity for the most demanding and diverse hunting situations. Featuring the radically superior


bullet with Heat Shield tip, Precision Hunter is the ideal load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges.


Verified by Doppler radar, the Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain the highest-in­-class BC over its entire trajectory.


Streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design + highly concentric AMP bullet jackets + Heat Shield tip combine for radically superior aerodynamic efficiency.


With high velocity, 0-­400 yard impact, the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high InterLock ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50­-60% weight retention.


Upon low velocity, 400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting controlled expansion with a large mushroom and 85­-90% retained weight, the bullet provides deep penetration and large cavities. Available as component bullets or in factory loaded Precision Hunter ammunition. In 2012, Hornady engineers were tasked with creating a new bullet. The main goal was to have a hunting bullet that worked well at all practical distances. Plenty of bullets work well from 0-400 yards, few work well beyond that and none work well at both conventional and extended range.


Extend your range, and never compromise at any distance. Hornady engineers, using state of the art aeroballistics software, Doppler radar and decades of bullet performance knowledge have developed an entirely new class of bullet.
