Hornady has come out with a new feature on their bullets. It seems promising.

Yeah I was reading a bit about them the other week and might give them a ago when fire forming my cases. To me a good projectile for long range is one that kills good and is accurate. If it can do that then great.

Hornady has, they wrote a really nice white paper on it including several recovered bullets. I will be testing it once the 6.5mm version is available. They haven't yet shipped any to distributors.

I received my preorder from Hornady a couple of weeks ago and have the 143 grain 6.5mm ELD-X under test using my 6.5 STW. Preliminarily, they look like a very nicely designed bullet. I'll report on accuracy at long range, exterior ballistic performance, and terminal ballistic performance over the next few weeks. My preliminary tests are favorable.
