Finally got some 285 gr match ELD's in and loaded some test rounds for my new 338 Lapua which I take ownership on next week. Will post the results.

Thanks Skipdavidson for that confirmation. The post about heavy copper fouling had me concerned as 3 of my most used rifles that were exclusively loaded with Amaxes are now forced to use ELDs or find a new bullet they like.
Another thought: with my 338 Lapua shooting consistent .5 moa out to 850 with Amaxes could the tips really be melting? Not really fast (2680) maybe that's why I had no problems with them?

So far I am very impressed with the 200's in my 30-06. I have the beginnings of a good load with 52.3 grains of H4350, Nosler brass, Fed 210's. I'm currently seating .02 off. My 3 shot groups are .33 to .50 I'm shooting a tikka t3 with standard contour on a b&C stock with 3.5-10 Conquest.

Do you know what velocity your getting there. I have a t3 in a 30-06 and 7mm Rem Mag I want to try running these in.

I finally got decent cold weather performance from my 300rum (m700lr) with the 200eld-x. I went to 93gr of retumbo loaded to 3.650" lit by a 215 in rem brass. The load shot a 1.2" group at 200 yards. My brother confirmed the load with another similar group at 200. I've loaded a box to play with in differing conditions to see if it holds true or not. I may just have the load for this rifle.

My thoughts were the 200 grain would be almost perfect in my 30-06. If I can get them to 2600 fps or above. I would be happy.. Thanks for sharing.

I'm looking to try the 162 gr ELD-M in my 7mm-08. It still has the factory Remington barrel with the 1 in 9.25" twist. With Hornady saying that the minimum twist is 1 in 9.5", am I good? Has anyone tried these in a similar rifle?
