Hornady® Adds 6mm Creedmoor to Precision Hunter® Line

Grand Island, NE – Due to the enormous popularity of the 6mm Creedmoor, Hornady continues to expand their offerings to satisfy today’s hunter. Topped with the newly designed 6mm 103 gr. ELD-X® bullet (.512 G1 BC), this new Precision Hunter offering delivers muzzle velocity of 3,050 feet per second.

Maintaining all the features of the Precision Hunter line of ammunition, the new 6mm Creedmoor features a streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design and highly concentric AMP® bullet jacket. Verified by Doppler radar, its Heat Shield® tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to maintain highest in class BC over its entire trajectory.

With high velocity (0-400 yd) impact, the ELD-X bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high InterLock® ring keep the core and jacket together, providing 50%-60% weight retention. Upon low velocity (400+ yd) impact, the Heat Shield tip drives backward to initiate expansion, producing a substantial mushroom and 85%-90% retained weight.

The 6mm 103 gr. ELD-X Precision Hunter load is ideal for hunting deer, antelope, and other medium sized game. Its long bullet is designed for 1:8 twist barrels and is also available as a component bullet for handloaders (Item No. 24550).

The 6mm Creedmoor Precision Hunter® ammunition (Item No. 81392) and 103 gr ELD-X® bullets (Item No. 24550) are available from stocking dealers, major retail sporting goods stores, and their websites. Dealers can be found by visiting the Retail Locator on
