    Thanks for the great article Darrell,
    I have a Kimber Mtn. Accent for a pack gun. I have been loading 143g ELDx on top of 43g of RL 16 in Lapua sm primer brass with CCI br4 primers with good results.
    I have heard that using the small primers could cause miss or hang fires. I have not experianced this myself as of yet but have not done a lot of cold weather shooting other than the few rounds I shot tonight with rounds that I had in the freezer for two days. Still no issues but still wonder if I should go to a large primer or at least a small magnum primer. what is your opinion/experiance with this.
    I am real happy with my load and would hate to have to start over but now am a little concerned to use them for hunting.
