It appeared to have worked.Berger 6.5mm 130 OTM, 2901fps MV, 454 yards. Approximate remaining 2348fps & 1587ft/lbs on target. Large mule deer buck, quartering away, slightly downhill, bullet entered back of ribs, took out both lungs, stopped under offside skin in the neck. The buck dropped at the shot without a twitch.

ELDX hasn’t been out half as long as the Berger, and seems to have just as many stories of failures, how is it well proven?Back in 2010 I can buy a box of ( orange hunting) Berger for about 5 to 8 dollars more than any other premium bullet. Now in 2020 I can probably buy a LB of powder and a box of the well proven ELDX. A almost 60 dollar a box not thank you.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
