    Hornady ELD-X heads in .308 Winchester rifle - Any comments?

    Has anyone had any experience of using the Hornady ELD-X heads on deer in a .308?

    If so would be interested to hear how they performed.

    Not sure if they are available in the U.K. Yet? Haven't seen them for sale anywhere

    I understand that they're sat in a container with customs, so hopefully we'll see some available soon

    Yup!, they are not "HEADS"!

    Pretty sure I saw a pair of eyes a nose and a mouth in there somewhere....

    ...perhaps it was my own reflection?

    Even Sako calls them heads.... think heads is good enough, sits on the neck. (Gamehead, Arrowhead etc.)

    Recon the ELD-X will not be much softer than an A-Max. Talking to a friend who shoots plenty goats (not UK) out to well over 600m with his 308 the verdict was that 168 A-Max dropped them very well and the 178 A-Max did not as well. I preferred using 168A-Max over 155 A-Max (Not UK) on deer. 168 seemed to be "just right". Out of a 308 If ELD-x, then maybe the lightest one being the 178gr.

    Do you mean harder? The ELD-X is definitely harder than an A-max. It's more like a streamlined SST.
