The ELD-X has made quite a splash. Weight retention seems to be the only issue, especially at higher velocities. I have to believe they had a good reason for not bonding it. Can someone smart than I, educate me as to why that might be?
Norma claimed to have solved this problem with their new Bondstrike range.
G1 of 0.629 in 143gr 6.5mm; G1 of 0.615 in 180gr .308 calibre.
It's factory loaded in a range of those two calibres.
Anybody tried it??
The problem is they themselves are pushing new fast cartridges so now even 300 yards is too close for these bullets. Maybe a 308 or 6.5 creed these bullets are great but now with 6.5prc, 300prc, 28/30noslers etc being more and more norm along with the old fast classics (300 win mag, 7mm rem mag, ultra mags etc), they need a bonded long range bullet in my opinion.It wouldn't expand as well at lower velocities ....since it is touted as a long range bullet it needs to expand at lower velocities.
If you want bonded, they sell the interbond
