Interesting...so how many of you guys have used them? Is the performance that much better than the a-max?
As far as shooting, I noticed a slight better performance. I had a customer bring out a 6.5 Creedmoor and two types of Hornady ammo, one loaded with 140 A-Max, one loaded with 140 ELD-M. We got DOPE on the A-Max, then used that for the ELD-M. If memory serves the ELD-M needs .1 Mil less elevation 500, 600, 700, and .2 less at 800 yards.
ELD-X think "expand". As far as I understand, that's the designation of the "X".
