    What is that Hardy can like? Stealth?

    My experience with the 75 Eldm is pretty good when it comes to terminal performance.
    Even out to 420yds it was putting big goats down in a hurry. They're not deer I know, but they worked well.
    Vitals were pretty messed up even at that range.

    If you are running a lighter load for zero then the proper load would not be zero?? Doesn't make sense to me. I would have though zero should be with the load you use all the time??

    He probably knows where the hunting load prints relative to the light load.

    I have shot 4 or 5 different projectiles and loads in my rifle over the years and my 200 zero is pretty much the same.

    Sit up straight and pull your chair closer to your desk! I have my heavy hitter load for Tahr and deer: 140 eldm and 140sst, covers me 0-500yds, then I have a practice load
    :100 eldm (2208) that is running at 3k, is on average 1/2-3/4 moa and happens to print exactly on the 140 loads at 110 and is still close at 300.

    It's a load that the wife is comfortable shooting (bottles and bunnies) and will do the job on wallabies and fallow if needed, easy on the shoulder, easy on brass, easy on the pocket and just plain fun to shoot. I like my logic!

    It's all here and there isn't it. Lighter pill going faster same POI makes sense.

    Same pill less powder different POI.

    The way it was written and seemed to me like it was same pill less powder hence my comment. No need to get closer to the desk you have clarified your statement.

    Have a cracker
