    1-9" Criterion Remage, about 200' asl, I'm about 15 miles from the coast.

    Talked with Jim at NSS, he was talking about 1-9" stabilizing 180gr Berger's no problem out to a mile, with video on his site of someone doing it.

    I got a bunch of them from Midway as seconds. They shoot great.

    Just looked on their site, they still have them, $35/100, funny thing is the 1sts are on sale for $32/100. I want to try the 175 eldx's...I think they should stabilize aside have a 1:9.25 (iirc) but I'm at 6000+msl

    I have been using the factory 147 ELD-M in my 24" barreled Creedmoor and have shot a 5 shot group that a dime will almost cover at 100 yards. I just picked up 300 147 projectiles yesterday from Midway for $31.49/100. Just getting into reloading but have had the factory 147 out to 1K yards on steel plates.

    I picked up 175s in ELD-X and NAB-LR. Haven't shot them yet since the 180s shot so well, and I have about 1700 of them.

    Here was load development, shot in the cold, round count under 50, so it wasn't even broken in.

    Second photo is a five round group with 61.8, the load I settled on. I haven't shot for groups at 100 since this, been moving beyond ever since. Not entirely sure if it was a flyer or just the grouping.

    I shot the larger hogs with my 308 using ELD-X ammo. Very happy with the results on the hogs and the accuracy.
