    71-72gr 2217 witha magnum primer is a typical load with 162-168gr projectile. Will be about 2950fps in a 24" barrel. You might possibly need to down load a grain or two if seating the projectile to fit in the magazine. The load quoted is with the projectile about 5 thou off the lands, which means the loaded round usually won't fit in a tikka magazine.

    Another vote for 2217.
    Do make sure you start a few grains below max as the ELD-X jacks up pressures more than A-Max or even ELD-M.
    I believe it's to do with harder jackets engaging with the lands that momentarily push pressures up.

    T3 - 162 ELD-M, 67 grains of 2213SC 3040 fps and half MOA. Works good for me. Couldn't get it to shoot with 2225. Looked like I was sighting in a riot gun with OO buckshot
