  • Match accurate hunting bullet
  • Devastating terminal performance at all ranges


Loaded with the most advanced all-range hunting bullet available, Precision Hunter Ammuntion sets a new standard of accurate, deadly and dependable hunting performance. Your trophy has never been closer– even if it’s far away! Featuring the radically superior ELD-X bullet with patented Heat Shield tip, Precision Hunter will soon be the “go-to” load for ANY hunting situation because of its effective terminal performance at ALL practical ranges.


The Heat Shield tip of the Hornady ELD-X bullet 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 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. ELD-Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions. 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 conventional expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90% retained weight the bullet provides deep penetration and large wound cavities.  This ammunition is new production and non-corrosive in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

    Love this round. Hornady blew it out of the water with the eld-x round. Consistent 1.5" grouping at 200m when I do my part with a gas gun. 13 year old has no problem hitting steel with it. Ready to test it in November.

    Great cartridge, excellent performance on deer and wild hogs, consistent, and accurate, but somewhat overpriced. Great folks at Mile High Shooting!

    Outstanding consistency and performance at ranges under 500 yards. Probably the best factory hunting ammunition around today.
