So I’m in the process of building a 6.5 PRC for deer hunting it will be with a Tikka lite action and a 24” Lilja barrel I was in my local sporting goods store and picked up some bullet if you have any experience with the 150 LRAB or 143 ELDX I could sure use some input good or bad

LOL....I like the way you go in buck naked with a double gainer. No dipping your toe and testing it first. LOVE IT. Please post up what you end up with as a final loading.

Yep. Interested in your 150 load. I haven’t seen 26 in 2 years. Ran out loading up 156 Berger’s. I have tried some 150 seconds with mag pro. 59-60.5g. I haven’t refined the load as I still have lots of 156 eol. Dumped a nice wide body muley with 156 in his tracks. About 120 yards. No exit but the bullet was on the other side of the hide in a perfect mushroom.

Is say look up loads for 156 eol with rl26. Good place to start. Lots of info on 143. Hornady and Nosler have info on either of your bullets.
