    Hello all, I'm new here but have been reading the threads for a while now. Just got into long range a few years ago and everytime I think i got it figured out, I learn something new.

    Happy to be here and looking forward to learning more.

    I like shooting my 22-250 but I'm inthe middle of working up a load for my 300 RUM. With the 220 ELD-X and retumbo. I found a velocity flat spot at 86.6 to 87 gr. but the speed was only 2850-2864. I ended my work up at 89 gr. where it started to flatten out again but it looked l like there's another node a little higher. 88.8 and 89 gr. had an ES of 12 between the two charges going 2948-2960. Gonna load 5 at 88.9 and 90.1 and test it at 600 yds.
