    300 winnie and the 212 eldx

    Got a few box's of the 212grn ELDX pills so I thought id suss a load out and post it up here for anyone interested.
    Started at 81grns 82grns 83grns then 84grns. Speeds started at 2880, 2930, 2960 then 2990fps.
    At 100 meters they were 1' group, 1.5'group, 1.2'group then the 84grns done .3' group with 3 shots.
    The group pictured is a 6 shot group at 100 going 2990fps with a spread of 13fps so im happy with that, will test to a km tomorrow hopefully.
    Cheers.
    Cam.

    If the seating into the neck is done with too much frictions you can get those rings,Try a bit of graphite powder on some lead shots in a tin box. Just dip the neck of your brass in it, wipe out the excess on the outside and your bullet should seat inside the neck easily.

    Thought so Nah easy to fix bro, my ones used to do it, mainly on compressed loads.
    Take stem, put in drill, roll up some wet and dry and give the inside contact edge a good skim. Mine havnt done it since. Bloody good seating dies really.
