    I am getting just over 2900fps with 140gn VLD from my RPR with a 24" barrel using Hodgon V100.
    Still no pressure signs.

    I backed it off slightly.

    I'm not wildly stoked with them, in the last month I've shot a fallow buck, 2 bull tahr and a red stag, nothing has dropped on the spot like the 140 Amax used to do. Obviously shot placement is related

    Maybe less hydrostatic shock as these new pills hold together better than the 140's? I agree though the 140's used to sack shit on the spot up to a few hundred which is the max distance I used them

    Sadly no film, I find it a bit exhausting filming everything so don't. Name:  IMG_6554.jpg

    Try the 130,140 & 147 ELDMs they are closer to the old Amax than the ELDX, nice & soft for the slower 6.5s
