The ELDX is normally longer than most bullets, even though I'm not sure about what length the 110 Is? I would look closely before making the jump because it MAY be better with a 9?

I think it is going to come down to the plastic tip length in the stability calculator a whole lot of 25 caliber bullets are considered unstable in 10 twist without a plastic tip length included I am looking for the oal of these to see what the calculator gives for an sg, my rifle shoots the bergers that have been changed to 9 twist very well but I have been reading that they may perform poor on game because of the low stability

Hi Gents
Surely this bullet just has to work in a ten twist? It would be commercial madness for a mass produced .25cal bullet to not work in standard twist. Indeed are there any Rifles made in .25 with a nine twist without going custom?
I would like to try this Bullet when it reaches here so here's hoping.

well I finally bought a box of these 1.219 base to tip is what I measure them at also they say 10 twist on the box I am going to load some in the 250 savage I will probably shoot some through some water jugs at different ranges to see if they stay on course through the jugs and how they hold up close in

In my custom 24" barreled Pre 64 M70 in 257 Roberts (long action) I tested OAL and got a .783" 100 yd group with it seated .080" off the lands using Hybrid 100V, getting 2918 fps. In the Kimber 84M (short action were an OAL of 2.839" just cleared the mag) I got .863" and .816", 3-shot groups using Hybrid 100V hitting 3029 and 3068 fps.
