The 147 Gr ELD-M has all the right numbers on paper and I have heard a lot of great feedback from people hunting with this bullet so that is my first bullet to try. It didn't disappoint with my first hand loads I tried.

3 Shot 6mm Creedmoor group, 103 ELD-X

This 100 yard, 108 Gr ELD-M, 6mm Creedmoor group is 0.33".

3 Shot 6mm Creedmoor group, 103 ELD-X

This 100 yard, 103 Gr ELD-X, 6mm Creedmoor group is exactly 1/2". It fits under a penny and almost under a dime. The third shot was the high one. I felt like I was a little high on the target when the trigger broke. Some might want better groups but this is perfectly fine for me.

Below are my personal favorite loads for my Browning X-Bolt rifle(s). 

The two bullets I have been playing with in my 6mm Creedmoor X-Bolt are the 103 Gr Hornady ELD-X and the 108 ELD-M. I've been really liking the ELD-X and ELD-M bullets from Hornady and have been moving more and more of my rifles over to these bullets. Currently the 108 ELD-M is my bullet of choice over the two and has had more consistent accuracy on long range targets.

300 WSM 200 Gr. ELD-X X-Bolt Hell's Canyon Speed Rifle.

First time out with my new Hell's Canyon Speed rifle. I picked this rifle up in the employee sale a couple months back. Did one bore sight shot then shot this 3 shot, 100 yard group.

Below are my personal favorite loads for my 300 WSM Hell's Canyon Speed X-Bolt rifle and Dallen's X-Bolt Long Range Laminate rifle. 

So far the only bullet I have been playing with in our 300 WSM X-Bolt's is the 200 Gr Hornady ELD-X. I've been really liking the ELD-X bullets from Hornady and have been moving more and more of my rifles over to these bullets.

300 WSM 200 Gr. ELD-X 3 Shot Groups.

Dallen's new X-Bolt 300 WSM and Hornady 200 Gr ELD-X bullets. 0.376, 0.565, 0.550 inch 100 yard groups. Shot off sand bags in breezy conditions. I'm amazed! I just used Hornady's recommended COAL and three different powder charges of IMR 4350. L-R shooting at second row of targets - 59 Gr then adjusted scope up and to right and let rifle cool while I shot another rifle, then 61 Gr and last 63 Gr shot right after the 61 Gr group with no cool down in between. Holy Crap! 200 ELD-X bullets rock!!!
