    Yep
    Seeing these soulless vanilla ice lookin Yankees on a bassboat is worse than watching a woman get her implants taken out. It's just wrong. Get back in your Lund and go back to infisherman.

    Likely true.

    Follow up question: what is the difference between the precision hunter 143 gr ELD X and the hornady match 140 gr ELD, other than the obvious 3 he of powder and the "X"?

    Grains is the bullet weight, not the powder charge.

    Eld is match is a different projectile. Lighter jacket non hunting bullet

    Thanks. What about the hornady am. Whitetail 129 gr interlock? Wanting a heavier bullet but dying to shoot it and don't want to drive to Columbia first, especially in Irma traffic

    The interlock is Hornady's version of a Nosler Partition, just not quite as good.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Downside to the interlock is the shitty BC. Only advantage you get from a 6.5 is high BC projectiles so when you get outside of Berger VLDs, LRABs, and ELDs you're giving up any and all advantages

    BC doesn't matter when most buy their 6.5 CM to shoot deer at 100yds. Outside of the PRS and the other LR disciplines, I don't get the 6.5 craze. 100-200yd deer hunting I'd rather have a heavier bullet in an accurate rifle. I'm really liking the .300wsm I picked up last year.

    I agree completely. Maybe for someone hunting a bunch out west but beyond that I don't get it

    I'd venture to guess I own more 6.5s than anyone on this board. They have their place for sure

    The Hornady ELD-X hunting ammo works well for me. I haven't shot any in 6.5 Creedmore (don't own one yet), but I have had decent results with the 308 load (which is heavy at 178 grains) and have killed a ton of stuff with 162 grain 7mm Mag load. Which shoots .75 MOA out of my Savage LRH.

    Ive gotten great accuracy out of the winchester match 6.5CM in my bergara's. At the Bergara factory they alternate between the winchester and hornady ELD's to record groups for the premier actions and claim that one doesnt shoot better than the other.
