Some cartridges produce low ES and SD than others. After I've worked at it a bit, I end up deciding on the load that seems to give reasonable ES/SD for my cartridge/rifle, and sufficient accuracy to shoot/hit game at 900 to 1000 yds.
With the ES of 58, I was way above any ES that I would consider using for LRH.
