The ETX® is a direct result of the efforts Hornady® puts forth to create products designed to meet the needs of European hunters and shooters. The ETX® is a non-lead, controlled expansion, copper alloy bullet with a round nose profile. It is designed to fit, feed, function and provide high levels of accuracy in all popular rifles, particularly those of European manufacture. The ETX® routinely provides upwards of 95% weight retention and will penetrate deeply in all situations with minimal meat damage. Highly effective for all international game, the ETX® is a phenomenal new option for European hunters!
