Hornady 180gn ELD-M

#1 Postby ajvanwyk » Mon Sep 04, 2017 1:44 pm

So, I managed to get my hands on the new Hornady 180gn ELD-M's with a massive G7 BC of 401.... :shock: :shock: :shock:

I've tested them thus far with a bit of mixed success but I do believe their BC claims. from a 100yard test I needed only 19.875 MIN to be on target at 900yards. Velocity was 2886. Also to note is that I shot them in a 1:9 twist and they are fully stable.

There has been a few reports of jackets tearing up.... can anyone confirm ?
