For those that delight in hitting targets at long-range, time-of-flight is the true obstacle to overcome. The longer it takes for a bullet to reach its target, the more opportunities environmental factors like wind and humidity have to act upon the bullet, thus altering its flight.

Hornady's solution was the ELD (Extremely Low Drag) Match bullet. With the company's proprietary HeatShield tip that resists deformation from aerodynamic heating, the bullet offers a low-drag profile with high Ballistic Coefficients (BCs) for more precise shots.

While there's plenty of high-quality factory fodder for your long-range rifle, precision-crafting rounds that are fine-tuned for your specific rifle will yield superlative results. Using Hornady's ELD Match bullets can improve even a great recipe.

MSRP: $50.75/box of 100 bullets.
