Great results over the years with H1000 and RL22 using 110G Accubonds.
Regarding meat damage using 115 Berger @ 3600 fps. Shoot through the shoulder or legs and you will have damage. They kill very quickly with the usual behind the shoulder/body shot.
Dan used his 257 at his ranch in Co and killed 6 elk and 4 mule deer. He never mentioned any issues with meat damage.
The rest of us have taken 25 coues wt, 2 antelope and 2 javelina. We are not disappointed in performance and none of us intend to switch bullets.
Not ELD-X but posting for what it is worth ...
Hornady's 69.1 gr of RL-25 data seems low when you consider the Nosler load data max load for a 115 nosler BT is 72 gr of powder.
I like 7828 with 120 gr Berger in mine.
I like 7828 also for 120 grain bergers.
Ricky, where can I find these 120gr Bergers?
I believe I got mine from a gun store I used to work at Dosh. Steve's Outdoor Sports in Magnolia, Ar. 71753
Oops, maybe I meant to type 115...lol
HaHa, that 120 would be an Arkansas 115!!!!
I don't know what that means but it sounds reasonable.
Mine liked 68 gr rl25 with the 115 Berger, after 5-600 rounds the throat eroaded and I had to jump up to 70gr to achieve the same velocity which brought the groups back to sub moa. It was a slow 3150 FPS but crazy accurate. Killed several deer and the furthest one my buddy used it to kill a coues at 780 yards.
