Haven't had any experience with the ELDs in the 6.5 caliber. I use the 140 Amax on ground hogs out to and beyond 1000 yards with very good success accuracy wise as well as performance. They exit about like a half dollar. Even at 1000+ yards results are the same as 600 yards. Great deer bullets too.Pushing the 140 eld match out of 6.5x284 at 2950 connected on 2 groundhogs at over 700 and crushed em pretty good...wouldn’t be scared one bit to shoot whitetail with this bullet at the 600 to 1000yd range.
