Some of the bullet exited, though?

IMO, yes it’s worth it. You just have to be slightly specific about shot placement. The ELD/AM/VLD behaves differently than a piledriving TSX, and should be treated accordingly.

Which is why I carry a mag full of the TTSX in the rifle for jump/quick close shots, with a few wind-cheaters handy for long shots that may present themselves wink

The 30 meter 180ELD on moose was more for R&D than matching the bullet to the shot.

Thanks for the kind words fellas. Calling that guy in was pretty fun. Always a rush when 1500 lbs of muscle is at 30m, with a desire to either make you a lady moose, or smash you into the ground. I’m not sure which would be worse.

Pretty sure the smashing. LOL

Anyone shooting these in a 280/280AI?

I'm thinking R22 would be a good powder to try.


Despite my user name, no I am not from Texas.........

Rl26 seems to be doing very well in 280ai. Personally I think the 280 is at it's best with 160-168 weight range.

Glad to have put him down. First whitetail BTW. We're still grinning. Actually always grinning looking at the ridiculous G7.

deer will survive lots of things. like that archery injury. Not sure how we know its archery but regardless.

ELDs are a bit expansive for me. The amax used to work ok, but only when driven slowly, like 75 amax out of 223 and at least 250 plus yards.

Have been watching a buddy running eld X out of 6.5 creed moor and he was having some excess damage too.

Regardless if the bullet does what you want it to, thats a good thing. The best thing is we have so many choices performance wise.
