I bought a box of Match ELD Hornady ammo when it was on sale and I ran it through a CaseMaster to check bullet runout, it shows .005" runout and you can see the bullet wobble with your naked eye. Has these ammo shot well for you? I have not tried it in my Creed yet.

I have shot some factory rounds with 140gr as well as Dallas Reloads. They did fine out of my gun all groups easily under MOA.

I will check all of mine, I have not had any issues with their performance.

Seems like I remember reading a post about this with this same bullet and it turned out the bullet needed a different seating stem???

Maybe I'm wrong, I already know my memory is chit, I don't know why I even try bang

Tried the 140 ELD Match from Hornady today, it shoots about .5 to .7 MOA. Just got 6 pounds of H4350 of the same lot today for my Creedmoor. Hopefully find some tidy groups next week after the FX-120 comes in.
