Hornady CX™ - 6mm Caliber .243 Diameter 80 Grain
Short for "Copper alloy eXpanding"
The new CX™, (Copper alloy eXpanding) bullet is the most advanced monolithic hunting bullet on the market. s monolithic construction with pioneering ballistic design to meet the need for a premium, non-traditional bullet. Tougher than pure copper, the mono-metal copper alloy has been proven to shoot cleaner, foul less, and deliver consistent, even pressure curves. The tough alloy material routinely retains 95% or more of its original weight and expands up to 1.5 times its original diameter.
Featuring a long, sleek profile with cannelures, the design reduces overall bearing surface and drag, while achieving some of the highest ballistic coefficients from monolithic, non-traditional bullets. Initiating expansion upon impact, the hard polymer tip drives into the hollow cavity at the front of the bullet, creating a mushroom-style projectile as it travels through the animal.
- Advanced Heat Shield® Tip - Resists aerodynamic heating enabling consistently high ballistic coefficients for enhanced extended range terminal performance.
- Monolithic Copper Alloy Construction - Highly accurate bullet retains 95% or more of its original weight for deep penetration.
- Optimum Groove Geometry - Maximizes aerodynamic performance while effectively reducing bearing surface and fouling.
- Nontraditional Option for Large Game - Compatible in California and other areas that require nontraditional bullets.
Ballistic Coefficient: 0.273 (G1)
