Hi all, have some 145gr eld-x's that I want to give a go, has anyone got any loads for them or other experience, thinking of starting with AR2225 thoughts? Rifle is a 23" x-bolt. Cheers

In mine I used hybrid-100v with 150grn long range accubonds and it was primo. 3k with 24" barrel. With the 145grn eld you could start carefully at about 59 grains.

  

Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.......

Thanks BC, thinking I may have to run with 150gr data and work up from there
