In high BC bullets, conventional polymer tips melt in flight. Conventional bullet tip materials in streamlined, high BC bullets melt and distort, according to Hornady experts. Aerodynamic heating causes BC reduction and accuracy degradation at extended ranges (400 yds and beyond), even though it is not a serious concern with modest BC conventional tipped varmint and hunting bullets. Hornady identified a heat-resistant material and developed the patent-pending Heat Shield tip to counteract this effect. This ground-breaking innovative tip produces the ideal meplat (tip).
