Just got done elk hunting and shot a bull at a very short 250 yards. Happy to say the 220 grain ELD-X performed well at short range. Shot the bull in the crease and it destroyed the vitals and unfortunately the offside shoulder. However, the bullet did travel all the way into the offside shoulder and almost exited. I will provide some pictures…..looked like a bomb went off in the animal and in the offside shoulder. My 300 win has that bullet moving along at 2825 fps. In this particular example, the performance of this bullet was fine at such short range. I was worried this bullet was going to be fragile in short range situations and it worked out ok in this one example. I wouldn’t hesitate to take on a shoulder with the 220 eldx. Just thought I would share a real world example.
