Does anyone have the load data from Hornady for the 103g ELD-x for 243. Thinking of trying this one but my hornady book is too old to have and they have taken that data down off the website.........THX

What data it there? You will be fine using the data for the 100 or 105gr Hornady bullets at starting loads to work up from.

What twist is your barrel? I'm wondering if they will be ok in a standard 1;10.

First, you will need a 1:8" twist for this bullet to work. For load data, piggy back any 105 A-max load data for the new 103, and you'll be GTG.

I don't know about the 103 ELD's but the 105 AMAX shoots great out of my Savage with 9 1/4 twist, running them @2980 fps. May be worth giving them a try.

I'm running Hornady 105 bthp's in my 700 VLS 6mm Rem with the same twist as you. So far so good to 500 yards.
