    Film 39: First Deer with 147gr ELD-M

    I went for a quick hunting trip to find a deer since the weather forecast was incredible for early winter - and found one! Featuring ice, deer, and an impressively useless cameraman. This was my first kill with the 147gr ELD-M out of my .260, and I am impressed so far.

    ELD-M, as opposed to ELD-X ? What sort of distance, velocity, wound etc ?

    Yes, ELD-M - I tried the ELD-X and didn't like the results (nothing dropped on the spot).

    Distance: 470 metres (no suitable shooting position any closer).
    Velocity: 2740fps
    Wound: Large, effective

    Great video thanks for posting. Totally stunning terrain too.

    Be interesting to see what they do at closer ranges. Very nice country you have. One of my pipe dreams to visit someday.

    Thanks for that, possibly too heavy for my 47 to throw, but good to know they work like their predecessors !

    Maybe, but you never know. I think my friend is going to try some in his 6.5x47

    Seems odd that you have had cleaner killing with the match version over the hunting version? Were the ELD-X expanding properly and giving you pass throughs?

    I'm about to start with the ELD-X on N Island reds in .308 so will be interesting to see how I go.

    Love the video.

    I shoot 140 sst out my 6.5x47 and it loves them so 147 are worth a try
