    6.5mm 143gr ELDX swap for 147gr ELDM

    I have a part box of 42x 143gr ELDX 6.5mm projectiles, swap or part trade for the 147gr ELDMs. Happy to buy part boxes too of 147gr that didnt shoot for you.

    I also have 60 or 70 123gr Amax's and a full box of 130gr Berger VLD hunting if that floats your boat.

    I am interested to hear (if you would go into your thinking) why you seem to move towards 147gr ELD-Mís?

    My reason for asking - I am shooting 6.5 Creedmoor, using 143 ELD-Xís for hunting and competition shooting. Quite happy with the performance, but I am sitting for a while with this itch to possibly move to 147gr ELD-Mís. Better BC, more range and less drift.

    Yes all of those reasons you listed and the simple fact that my barrel shoots them better than the 143gr ELDX.
    See my thread for test results:
