Hornady Precision Hunter factory loaded ammunition is built around accuracy and stopping power. Engineers at Hornady have worked hard to make hunting loads that are better and more accurate than the competition and that let the ELD-X bullet perform at its best.
The propellants used in the Precision Hunter line of ammunition burn cleanly and are loaded to the same level for consistent results from shot to shot, no matter what the temperature is. Because of this attention to detail, the guns are accurate and perform the same way in even the most difficult and varied hunting situations.
Precision Hunter is the best load for ANY hunting situation because it has the much better ELD-X bullet with the Heat Shield tip, which kills effectively at ALL practical ranges.
- BEST-IN-CLASS BCS Doppler radar has shown that the Heat Shield tip resists the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to keep the highest-in-class BC over the course of its flight.
- MATCH ACCURATE HUNTING BULLET AMP bullet jackets have a streamlined secant ogive with the best boattail design. When the Heat Shield tip is added, the aerodynamic efficiency is greatly improved.
- DEVASTATING CONVENTIONAL RANGE PERFORMANCE The bullet expands all the way through its path of penetration, which is from 0 to 400 yards. The high InterLock ring and thick shank of the jacket keep the core and jacket together, which keeps 50-60% of the weight.
- BEST EXTENDED RANGE TERMINAL PERFORMANCE AVAILABLE At 400 yards, when the bullet hits with low speed, the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the bullet to start it expanding. The bullet has a controlled expansion that makes a big mushroom and keeps 85-90% of its weight. This gives it deep penetration and big holes. You can buy Precision Hunter bullets separately or as part of factory-loaded ammunition.
