So far the body count with this rifle is:

3 whitetail does (250, 250, 100 yds)
1 pronghorn (450 yds)
3 javelina (200 yds, 200 yds, 30 yds)
1 coyote (150 yds)
1 bobcat (125 yds)

The only thing I've fed it so far is 75gr ELDMs.
The performance has been stellar.
Closer range animals don't have an exit.
Further shots (250 and out) have exits.

I have some 88s that I haven't got around to testing yet but I'm anxious to try them out.

I love the Manners EH2 stock but because the scope sits just a tad higher because of the picatinny rail I think I may be going to an adjustable cheek stock for a better cheek weld. (rings are low)
I don't think Low Talleys will work because of the eye piece diameter on the Zeiss. I believe it will interfere with bolt manipulation.

Lots of the numbers I see are, shall we say, based on alternative facts. Check out the Peterson CO’s test results for the 22 CM. Great cartridge but not magic., unless you add some 2,4,6 Tri Nitro Toluene.

I shoot a .22 Creedmoor Improved. Accurate as it gets and it kills chit dead.

what I was thinking was I really like bacon but prefer tenderloin. So if I don’t have the tenderloin prepped to batter and fry we will probably have bacon eggs and sausage. Even though my wife makes sausage gravy.

With all this talk of the 75 eldm has me wondering about the 73 eldm, my 22-250 NULA loves the 73.
