Has anyone tried these? With 140gr ELD-M being unobtainable right now I'm looking for options to try. I'm looking for any first hand experience, loads, or terminal performance on game. Times are tough out there for components and its time to diversify.

I am just getting started in this caliber. I ran some test loads with RL-22 because I had it on hand(Seems to be half the battle these days). It has worked out really well.

Currently:
140gr ELDX
45gr RL-22
BR2 Primer
Starline Brass

.2-.6 MOA
2650 fps out of a 20" Tikka CTR
Very little vertical deviation at 600.

    You mean RDF?
    Good bullets, they got off to a rough start but seem to be excellent now.
    I plan on going back to RDF’s after I shoot up the rest of my 130eldm’s.
    Similar loading to the equal weight hybrids.
    No experience with them on bigger critters.

    No I was talking about my original load. I cant find that projectile so I am looking at the RFD.
