It would have gone through 3/8" plate too.View attachment 142295 Yesterday I tossed together a load using 220 gr ELD x and 72.4 gr H1000 2690 FPS coal was 3.45” T/C Compass 24 “ barrel 1-10 twist it measured 1.858” at 200 yds . I think I will play with this a little . I had a piece of 1/4” plate , never thought It would penetrate.
Well. I found a happy node for my Savage 10t-sr. 200gr eldX pushed with 72.5gr of 7828ssc. Odj is 2.81. 0.3-0.5 moa.Has anyone with a 300 Win Mag had a chance to shoot the ELD-X bullets yet? I curious how they are grouping and what kind of speed you are seeing with them so far?
Any load data would be appreciated.
Yes 69.5 Grains RL22 Federal Bench Rest Primers 200 Grain ELD-X is what my Browning X-Bolt Hells Canyon likes. 200 Yard Zero COAL .003 off lands1032 Yard Shot Phone Scope Link Snap Chat Link son was filmingWell.

I will be running some 178gr eldX tests in the morning. Starting with 74gr of 7828ssc at 2.82odj.
So far the only problem I've had with eldX is hunting. I shot a bear about a month ago and it made a heck of a mess. A 200gr eldx at 300 yards just about hollowed out the poor critter.
Yep. They are awesome at long range for taking stuff down. Nice video.
