Have you shot any animals with them and if so what was the much meat damage? What ranges?

We killed 3 whitetail last year. 450, 350, 550. Muzzle velocity of 2820fps.

 

One penciled at 450 yards and one splashed on high shoulder at 550 yards.

 

After checking the meplats, my specific lot of 500 had about 20% that were clogged. I now check every tip on my hunting loads.

I should be able to let you know in a couple weeks, when Taylor smokes a pronghorn with them....

I went light and fast(er) in my 6.5SLR.  130 OTM @ 2888.  Very similar retained velocity and energy at 900 yards as the 147 ELD-M @ 2685fps.  45" less drop, but 3" more drift in a 10mph 90° full value wind, reduced TOF too.

Lance, just curious why you're running the 147s that slow. I thought the PRC was supposed to be pushing those faster. Was it a pressure issue or accuracy?

He's not using a PRC, but a SLR...
