ELD-X? What the heck does that mean? Extremely Low Drag – Expanding. These .308 Win Ammo by Hornady Precision Hunter - 178gr ELD-X rounds are like having a rocket in your pocket! Hornady has created these crazy fast rounds that have a muzzle velocity of 2600 fps. Anything on the receiving end of these will get smacked with 2672 ft/lbs.

Hornady engineers really nailed the maximum ballistic potential of these rounds. You’ve heard the term “high speed, low drag?” Well this is it. These rounds come with a superior engineered heat shield tip that says “no” to aerodynamic heating and holds its shape to retain its trajectory. This was verified by Doppler radar.

Precision Hunter rounds are the perfect choice for any hunting trip due to its effective terminal performance at all practical distances. They are clean burning and loaded for consistent shooting no matter what the temperature outside. The attention to detail in these rounds is unmatched.

Testing under 400-yard, high velocity impact, the round expanded evenly through its penetration retaining a 50-60% weight. In tests over 400 yards, high velocity impact, the heat shield tip pushes backward into the bullet to heighten expansion creating a large mushroom of a projectile and retaining 85-90% of its weight.
