I have been considering a number of short action WSM cartridges to build a rifle around for sheep hunting and just a lighter carry. I recently found Alliant is showing that the 7mm WSM with 162 grain bullets and reloader 26 is able to obtain 3171 feet per second out of a 24-inch Barrel.
Hi guys, hereby I'm asking for any help.
Here is the story: I shoot older Sako rifle, it has 24.5" long factory varmint barrel with 8.66" twist. Last two seasons I've shot Berger Hybrid 180gr. very successfully. But I love to try always something new and different. So I bought two boxes of...
I reached out to Hornady and they don't have any reloading data, I'm still waiting on VV to get back to me; in the meantime what have you used as a starting point for a ladder test?
I have a 300WM, 28in barrel Krieger #5
I emailed Hornady, after we had that huge debacle about Brown bear with the ELD-X. I was curious why they recommended the SST from a .338 WM, and the 220 Interlock from a 30-06, when the 200,212,and 230 ELD-X is not. Even the 270gr in the Lapua isn't recommended for brownies.
I had a bad experience with a 7mm and Berger 168 on an elk. He was slightly quartering toward me, and I put two into him. Based off sightings on private a few weeks later, it appeared I hugged too far forward and they didn't get past the shoulder...
I had a 30 Nosler built for other reasons...
I’ve wanted to start a dedicated thread for anybody with experience shooting the 338 270gr ELD-X. It does not seem that many people shoot this bullet. Maybe we can dig up some field results.
What cartridge, powder, seating depth, muzzle velocity, etc, are your shooting? How accurately are...
A good friend of mine if going to have his Tikka T3 rebarreld shortly in 30-06.
He's asked me to reload for him.
So i have a few question to those of you that are shooting the 06 with the 178gr ELD-x
1)What coal are you running?
2)If it's a custom barrel was it throuted for them and if...
Anyone used the the 7mm 150gr ELDX bullets in there 280 AI? Just got a box from Cabelas and checked my Hornady book and I don’t see any data for these bullets. Any help or hunting experience would be great.
Recently ordered a box of the 30cal 212gr ELD-X hunting bullets. I’m wondering if anyone has load data for 300 win mag with H1000? I’m going to be using new Nosler brass too.
If you’ve used these how’d they perform?
Killed my first animal after switching to the 175 gr ELD-X, small mule deer buck at 600 yards.
Impact Energy: Approx. 2300 ft/lbs
Impact Velocity: Approx. 2400 fps
Although this was a heart/lung shot, the deer dropped immediately after being hit, exactly like animals I have...
