High BC rounds’ conventional polymer tips melt while in flight. Engineers at Hornady discovered that high BC, streamlined bullets with typical bullet tips melt and distort. Aerodynamic heating reduces BC and impairs accuracy with moderate BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets, while it is not a severe problem, especially at long ranges (400 yds and beyond).
Hornady discovered a heat-resistant polymer and created the Heat Shield tip to counteract this impact. This cutting-edge new tip makes the ideal meplat (tip), delivering remarkably consistent outcomes from bullet to bullet and lot to lot. In order to offer a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same form, the Heat Shield tip resists the effects of aerodynamic heating and maintains its shape. A highly accurate, high BC match bullet is made with a streamlined secant ogive, an ideal boattail design, highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, and a patent-pending Heat Shield tip. Doppler radar is used to measure and correct ELD-Match bullet BCs for normal air circumstances.
