    Default Hornady ELD-X results

    I just fired my first round of 200 gr ELD-X bullets from my Tikka 300WM. At 200 yards, 4 shots at 1/2 moa with 73.0 grains of Rl-22. MV was avg of 2914 fps. 73.5 opened a little but will try to go a little higher and see if its better or worse.

    I would shoot the 73 grain load a few more times and if it hold 'true' that is the one that I would be using. Nothing wrong with 4 shoots in 1/2".

    Been reading reports of people testing these bullets in to media and what not, and they seem to be fragmenting really easily. I was hoping these ELD-X bullets would hold up better than the A-Max bullet.

    I havent' seen any reports but hoping the same. I might need to try the water jug test and see how it penetrates.
