    Would anyone have any load data for the ELDX. I would like to try H1000 with the 200gr ELDX in my 300 win mag and I was given a few of the 103gr eldx I would like to try in my .243. Would I be safe to use the same load data for the 105gr A max in my .243 and say something like the 200gr accubond for my 300 win mag.

    You'd be fine to use that data.

    Don't have a .243, but the A-MAX 178gr. shoot better in my 300 Win. mag. and also in my 308 Norma then the ELDX 180's did ! My 308 will shoot out to 1550 yards, and I am out of clicks at that range, but it is dying fast also, but still very accurate ! I didn't try the 200gr. ELDX's When I can hit oak leaves laying on the snow at 1300 yards, I am satisfied ! That is farther then I will probably shoot at any game ! I use the 168gr. AMAX in my shoulder gun 300 Win. Mag. and they work good also.

    Tried several powders with the 300 Winny and the 200 grain Accubond and ELDX and they did interchange in my rifle. In my rifle (safe in this firearm only) i used 74 grains of RL-26, 77.5 grains of RL-25, 77 Grains of H1000 and 81 grains of IMR8133. None of these save RL-26 appeared max but approach all loading with caution, reduce accordingly. CCI 250 primers, Rem brass. Starting all over again as I am using ADG Brass and the internal volume is a bit reduced.

    I use 76gr H1000/Fed215M in my 300WM with the 200gr ELD-X’s. Work up from a couple grains less.

    I started at mag length and went in. I haven't measured, but they are jumping a long ways. Well over .1".
    The 212eldx has a different nose profile from what I've heard and they don't tolerate jump as well. I do have a box of them, but haven't tried them yet.
