Accuracy and terminal performance are the cornerstones of Hornady Precision Hunter factory loaded ammunition. These match-accurate hunting loads allow the ELD-X bullet to achieve its maximum ballistic potential. Propellants used in this line are clean burning and loaded to uniform capacity for consistent shot to shot results regardless of temperature. The ELD-X Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain the highest in-class BC over its entire trajectory.

    Deadly Accurate

    Posted by Jack on 15th Oct 2018

    I've been buying and testing the EDL-X ammo in the four 6.5 Creedmoors I have for over a year now. Shoots like Match Grade ammo using a hunting bullet. Considering price and accuracy, I don't need to look any further for my applications.

    Amazed at it's accuracy

    Posted by Robert on 14th Jan 2018

    I purchased this ammo to run through my Ruger precision rifle and I am not disappointed. After a 60 round break in I started focusing on groups and soon learned this is right there as good as reloading my own. I am shooting an average of 5/8" groups at 200 yards. Well worth the money and vizard's has great prices and fast shipping.

    Keep the Change!!!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Oct 2016

    Rifle: AR-10, 6.5 CR, Criterion FA NM 24" stainless bull barrel, 1-8 twist.
    Scope: Millett LRS-1, 6-25X56
    This was first outing with this rifle, finished it Friday night
    and was out on the range Sunday.
    I used 129gr. Hornady interlocks to break in the barrel, then settled
    In to shoot some groups with the 143 ELD-X ammo.
    Velocity was a bit lower out of this barrel than advertised, avg. 2643 over 10 shots. The really great part of this review is 2, 10 shot groups that you could cover with a penny each!!!
    I have always used Hornady ammo as my accuracy benchmark for all my accuracy testing, looks like they really hit a home run again.

    Good stuff

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Sep 2016

    I'd like to say the Hornady 143gr eld-x ammo is good stuff. Shot very well and nice groups. Haven't shot on deer yet hope to soon but maybe a ground hog sooner.

    Could not be more pleased

    Posted by Joe Forish--Red Oak, Texas on 3rd Jul 2016

    I Took my new Browning-bolt rifle and put my Hornady 6.5 creedmoor ammo to the test and I'm pleased with the results. I broke in the barrel with a cheaper Hornady ammo. First I cleaned the barrel then after each shot I re-cleaned the barrel again for a total of 12 shots. Then 3 sets of 2 shots and 2 sets of 4 shots. I then put on my Leupold Vx-3i 4.5 to 14 CDS scope . It took 4 shots to sight it in after initial bore sighting. I then cleaned the bore fired 2 fouling shots and let the barrel cool. My first 3 shot group at 100 yards was less than 1/2 moa. I then installed my cds turret and the scope and cartridges shot as advertised. This was the first 6.5 creedmoor ammo made commercially even before there was rifles being produced in this caliber and I would tell anyone to use it.
    I'm 72 years young and was shooting off of a Harris bi-pod and a rear bag. I'll use this ammo out to 600 yards with confidence etc. Your price and shipping of this ammo was really great!!
