Honestly, I didn't give it much thought until I read another thread dealing with problems using target bullets for hunting. I bought some 208 gr. ELD match bullets. Shooting them with 76 grains of H1000. It is a new gun and my first 300 Win Mag. I am still working on my seating depth, but it is pretty much hitting sub-moa. These bullets have the plastic tip. I have had the gun almost a month. I have killed 2 Antelope and a mule deer. Ranges 104 yards to 350 yards. The damage was more than what I normally get with 30-06 and 7mm-08. But if these match bullets are for target shooting, then should I not be using ELD-X bullets?
