EXCELLENCE: Hornady has been an industry leader in bullet design and innovation since 1949. “Ten Bullets Through One Hole” was the philosophy adopted by the company’s founder, Mr. Joyce Hornady, and continues right through today. Consistent quality, accuracy and performance are, and always will be the hallmarks of all Hornady products.
QUALITY CONTROL: We oversee each aspect of production to insure that every bullet meets our stringent quality assurance criteria. With our own high-tech underground test facility, complete with top-of-the-line test equipment, we constantly test everything we make. We’re obsessed with providing the best performance from every single bullet we design.
VARIETY: Our impressive product line includes over 300 bullets, ranging from 17 caliber all the way up to the spectacular 50 caliber AMAX bullet for the 50 BMG. We are always working to originate the next technological innovation and we thoroughly enjoy what we do. From prairie dogs to dangerous game, we have the perfect bullet to meet every hunting and shooting need.
It's a fact: The Hornady® A-MAX® bullet design grew from a relentless application of everything we know about ballistics and flight characteristics. After all, match shooters demand perfection from their bullets every time they step on the range.
The aerodynamic secant ogive profile, the sharp pointed tip and the unequaled concentricity of the A-MAX® design give it an extremely high ballistic coefficient for near perfection in flight.
The A-MAX® bullet is the ultimate result of more than half a century of studying bullet performance. Ever aspect of accuracy has been designed into the A-MAX® bullet. From its polymer tip to the angle of the boattail, the A-MAX® bullet is engineered for extreme accuracy.
An aggressive, hard-hitting bullet with an attitude to match, Hornady® DGS® bullets feature an advanced profile built of the toughest materials that penetrate through thick hide, dense muscle and hard bone -- delivering maximum stopping power.
The business end of the DGS® bullet features a wide, flat nose that delivers maximum energy upon impact while resisting bullet deformation and deflection. Incorporating a very hard, high-antimony lead core with a copper-clad, steel jacket, this bullet maintains integrity and overall weight retention when driving through even the toughest hide and bone. Uniform in shape and size to the DGX®(Dangerous Game™ Expanding) bullet, you can reliably and accurately shoot both from the same firearm with little to no shift in point of aim or impact.
In the most dangerous hunting situations, you need a bullet that performs every time, no matter what the circumstance. The Hornady® DGX® (Dangerous Game™ Expanding) bullet is constructed of copper-clad steel and a high-antimony lead core.
The DGX® bullet incorporates our patented InterLock® feature that locks the core and jacket together, improving retained weight of the expanded bullet. Each caliber utilizes the same profile for both the DGX® and DGS® bullets, offering uniformity, which is ideal when shooting both bullet types through the same firearm.
ELD Match bullets are technologically advanced, enhanced accuracy target bullets featuring Heat Shield tips with the PERFECT MEPLAT (tip point) combined with numerous design features that deliver the highest-in-class ballistic coefficients, superior accuracy and extreme consistency from bullet-to-bullet, lot-to-lot.
All manufacturers commonly used polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. Hornady engineers discovered that commonly used 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 Heat Shield tip. This revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip) with exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot.
Superior accuracy and industry leading ballistic design has been achieved with the ELD Match bullet. An optimum secant ogive and boattail design along with the Heat Shield tip produce a bullet with the highest possible ballistic coefficient in its class. Verified by Doppler Radar, ELD Match ballistic coefficients do not vary due to the integrity of the Heat Shield tip. The bullets perform extraordinarily consistently with no BC degradation at extended range
The ELD-X bullet is a technologically advanced, match accurate, ALL-RANGE hunting bullet featuring highest-in-class ballistic coefficients and consistent, controlled expansion at ALL practical hunting distances.
All commonly used polymer tips in high BC bullets melt in flight. Hornady engineers discovered that commonly used 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 +).

This revolutionary new tip creates the perfect meplat (tip) with exceptionally consistent results from bullet-to-bullet and lot-to-lot.
At conventional range (0-400 yards), the ELD-X bullet is designed to continually expand throughout its penetration path. Upon impact the thin nose section of the bullet peels back and sheds material until it reaches the thick shank of the bullet jacket where the InterLock ring works to keep the core and jacket together. The remaining heavy shank of the bullet continues to drive forward and expand for extremely lethal results.
Upon contact at extended range (400 + yards), the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the carefully designed nose cavity to begin the expansion process. At these lower velocities, the ELD-X bullet exhibits conventional expansion characteristics with a large mushroom and high retained weight ensuring deep penetration and large wound cavities.
Available as component bullets or in factory loaded ELD-X Precision Hunter ammunition, ELD-X bullets are "heavy caliber" and designed for maximum ballistic coefficients, the highest levels of accuracy, consistency and extreme lethality at ALL practical hunting distances.
The choice is yours, whether you choose an FMJ bullet for its deep, bone-shattering penetration or its ability to protect the integrity of the pelt, you’ll find the perfect Full Metal Jacket in our traditional line.
Hornady® FTX® bullets revolutionized lever-gun ballistics, creating a whole new level of performance for these popular firearms. Lever-gun enthusiasts can now harness the accuracy, power and long-range performance of a tipped bullet that's safe to load in tubular magazines.
The patented Flex Tip®, combined with Hornady® pioneered secant ogive design, creates an aerodynamic bullet with a thinner, tapered front section and extended bearing surface for much higher ballistic coefficients. The FTX® flies faster and flatter than traditional lever--gun bullets, resulting in improved accuracy at ranges well beyond what was historically common.
The one-piece high antimony lead core of the FTX® bullet is locked to the jacket with an InterLock® ring, resulting in reliable performance and deep penetration on large or heavy-bodied game animals. Designed to perform at muzzle velocities from 1,600 to 2,600 fps, FTX® bullets are ideal for hunters and shooters looking to give their lever gun new life.
Upon impact, the soft tip compresses into the bullet, initiated immediate expansion across a wide range of velocities. Safe to shoot in tubular magazines as well as any other firearm.
Mechanically locks the core and jacket together for maximum weight retention and deep penetration.
Pioneered by Hornady® the secant ogive profile delivers stability, flat trajectories and amazing accuracy.
The heavy jacket over the shank of the bullet combined with our proven InterLock® design controls expansion and enhances accuracy.
The mono-metal Hornady GMX delivers a devastating terminal performance across a wide range of velocities. It's streamlined design offers ultra-flat trajectories while the copper alloy construction and double cannelures reduce fouling.
Monolithic, copper alloy bullets deliver controlled expansion and 95+% weight retention
Reduces both bearing surface and fouling, and aids in consistent reloads.
High weight-retention is a significant benefit to the GMX® and monolithic family of bullets, routinely retaining 95% or more of their original weight.
All Hornady® Match™ bullets feature revolutionary AMP® (Advanced Manufacturing Process) bullet jackets. Developed by Hornady® engineers, these bullet jackets are a technological advancement in design, tooling and manufacturing that combine to produce the most consistently concentric bullet jackets available. These new AMP® jackets are the foundation for exceptional bullet accuracy and have virtually zero tolerance for concentricity and near zero wall thickness variation. Coupled with precision swaged cores and manufactured to the tightest standards in the industry, all Hornady® Match™ bullets provide superior consistency, high ballistic coefficients and unprecedented levels of accuracy.
The Hornady® Interbond® bullet uses a proprietary bonding process that holds the core and jacket together. Unlike partitioned or dual-core bullets, where the front core can separate from the bullet mass, the InterBond® bullet holds together in a single destructive mass that delivers a deep, wide wound channel without over-penetrating.
The bonding process, along with a thicker, stiffer jacket, allows InterBond® bullets to retain more than 90% of their mass, even through tough hide and bones. Plus they immediately expand to more than twice their diameter for maximum energy transfer.
The Hornady traditional line of bullets feature exposed lead tips for controlled expansion and hard hitting terminal performance. Most have our pioneering secant ogive design-one of the most ballistically efficient profiles ever developed. Most feature our exclusive InterLock® design--a raised ring inside the jacket that is embedded in the bullet's core that keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy.
Pioneered by Hornady® for use in hunting bullets, this technology broke new ground in ballistic engineering and is now used in bullets for everything from match to varmint shooting.
The secant ogive is a geometrically developed design that creates the most ballistically efficient profile, yet retains the optimum bearing surface. The combination of the slender point and increased bearing surface results in lower drag, increased stability, flatter trajectories, and amazing accuracy.
The new MonoFlex bullet – The lever evolution continues!
By combining the technologies of the GMX and FTX bullet design, the MonoFlex bullet gives lever gun shooters the advantages of a monolithic bullet topped with the innovative Flex Tip technology that allows hunters to load pointed bullets into tubular magazines without danger of primers being ignited under recoil.
Upon impact, the patented Flex Tip design “opens” the bullet, initiating immediate expansion, even at the lower velocities often encountered in mid- to long-range lever gun shooting situations.
Its deep penetration, high weight retention and unbeatable power combine to produce yet another accurate, deadly and dependable choice for lever gun hunters.
Hornady® NTX® bullets provide peerless performance with non-traditional core material that combines accuracy, reliability and Hornady® quality for use in areas with restrictions on the use of traditional bullets.
Hornady® has made lead core bullets since 1949. Lead is, and always will be an excellent core material that provides density and hard-hitting energy to a vast array of bullets. However, there are regulations in some areas that restrict the use of lead in bullets. The NTX® is a phenomenal choice when a non-traditional core bullet is required.
Short for "Super Shock Tip" the Hornady® SST® is designed to deliver tremendous shock on impact while expanding quickly and reliably, particularly at higher velocities. Streamlined for ultra-flat trajectories our SST contains a polymer tip for rapid expansion and maximum energy transfer. The match-grade jacket delivers surgical accuracy while heavy construction with InterLock feature delivers deep penetration every time. Flat shooting and deadly accurate, it's an ideal bullet for whitetails, as well as most North American game animals from antelope to moose and similar-sized African plains game. The SST® creates a devastatingly large wound channel.
The industry's leading varmint bullet with polymer tip and streamlined design results in ultra flat trajectories. The industry-leading concentricity of the match grade jacket design provides maximum accuracy at all ranges as well as explosive expansion, even at velocities as low as 1600 fps.
V-MAX® bullets are also available in factory-loaded Varmint Express® and Superformance® Varmint ammo.
