I've had good luck at .020" with ELD-Ms and Xs across several different calibers ranging from .224 through .338.

I'm running .005 off with the 208 eldm In my win mag. I got lucky and didn't have to fiddle with seating depths once I switched to those pills!

Admittedly I don't have a a ton of experience with ELD-M's - mainly 22 and 30cal. My limited experience supports the general theory that lighter for cal bullets tolerate jump better than heavier pointier ones. In reality this has more to do with bullet shape than weight, but in the case of the ELD-M the two are correlated. Which ELD-M's are you considering, Bax?

I'm envious, that combination should be a real wind walker. Being long and pointy, my guess is you'll be chasing the lands for best accuracy with that one though, best of luck!
