200 Grain Hornady ELD-X - 300WSM

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm currently running a .300 WSM, using 130Gr TTSXs going 3650 FPS, however I'm looking for a bullet I can carry as a backup for any longer range shots that may need taking on deer (in exceptional circumstances).

I have looked at the 200Gr ELD-X which according to quick load should be doing roughly 2850-2950FPS with RS70, however having looked at the stability calculator with the 1-11" twist barrel the bullet is showing a not optimally stable, however it may be usable.


The rifle is a factory Tikka barrelled action, with a 24" barrel, has anyone got any experience with the bullets in a similar twist barrel, have you found it to be accurate or would it need a 1-10" or faster as recommended?


Many thanks,

Just use the bullet your using Ben 

know the dope and use that for follow up if needed (which is unlikely given your ability and rifle)
