Hornady Vintage Match 30-06 Springfield (M1 Garand) Ammo 168 Grain ELD Match review offers the following information; Hornady Match ammunition is loaded to stringent specifications to guarantee proper ignition and provide consistent, match-winning, pinpoint accuracy, shot after shot! Each component was selected to ensure uniformity which when coupled with strict quality control means that each round will be loaded to the proper length, consistent charges, consistent pressure, optimal velocity, and repeatable accuracy. This Hornady Match 30-06 Springfield (M1 Garand) ammunition performs as well or better than handloads. Conventional polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. Hornady engineers discovered that conventional bullet tip materials in streamlined, high BC bullets melt and deform. Although not a significant issue affecting moderate BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets, aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and degradation of accuracy, particularly at extended ranges (400 yds +).
To counter this effect, Hornady identified a heat resistant polymer and developed the patent pending Heat Shield tip. This revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip) with exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot. The Heat Shield tip defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. A streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design, plus the highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, combined with the patent pending Heat Shield tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet. ELD-Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions.
Hornady Match bullets provide superior consistency, high ballistic coefficients and unprecedented levels of accuracy.
