It’s another thing to carry but for getting my 6 yo son shooting I bought a BOG Death Grip and it does surprisingly well with even my big rifles.
I clamp my rifles much closer to the mag then shown in this picture, it’s only that way to make the barrel stamp visible in that particular picture.
Never seen an eld-x open so little. Typically at longer ranges they stay together in me experience, up closer the core does leave the jacket and expansion is fast like a Berger.
These are 200 eld-x from a 300 wsm with MV of 2985 fps recovered from a bear at 488yds.
NF C618 Atacar 4-16x50 Mil-C
This scope was only on my 300 wsm for about 100 rds. It is in very good shape with only a few very light scuffs on the caps from going in and out of the safe. The Glass is pristine as it has had Tenabraex caps on it 24/7.
It currently is mounted in NF light weight...
