I can confirm the unbelieveable exposive nature of this bullet! EVERYTHING INSIDE WAS JELLY! I thought the SST bullets out of my 308 Win. was impressive, but they don't hold a candle to these at 3000 fps! Note to SCIROCCO, PLEASE MAKE A 6.5 BULLET HEAVIER THAN 130 GRAINS!I’m impressed with your buck and the performance. I’m pushing that bullet at 2790 out of my CM and have begun to question what I feel is an explosive nature. I shot my pronghorn at 190 yards hard quartering to me.I I missed the shoulder but hit two ribs. The bullet grenaded, blowing up the lungs but also taking out part of the tenderloin. Largest fragment was 36 grains.
I've killed 8 whitetail with a 143gr eldx from a few different Creedmoor rifles. Ranges run from 50y to 370y, and only one of them made it more than 10y, and I will attribute that to the occasional deer with above average grrrrrr. I have seen a bunch of anecdotal stories bashing that bullet, and in most cases there was no recovery of the bullet or animal, so..whatever. like many of you, I joined the 6.5prc world this year and I'm shooting the 143gr eldx in it with absolute confidence. Beautiful buck Sir.
I apologize if that felt personal, because it wasn't. I was honestly referring to the beating that bullet took on Facebook hunting groups that I used to watch before I stopped following all kinds of social media.I wasn't trying to bash the bullet, I'm just concerned. I've killed about 20 animals with it from 75 to 338 yards and have yet to not recover an animal.
