I was in Murdochs a while back looking for something else and came across some Hornady 108 ELDs. I thought "hmmmm, these look interesting so I bought a box and a pound of Hybrid 100V to make them go bang. After using up most of that pound trying to get them to shoot I tried some IMR4350 which is showing signs of tiny groups. 3/4 inch so far!!!

These bullets are supposed to be run out of a 1:8 twist barrel but if I can get things tuned I'm sure I can get my 1:9 1/8 twist 700VLS to produce minute of prairie dog groups. If this rifle can shoot 58 grain Vmax's in one hole I'm sure I can make the 108's work as well.

As soon as I get a password I can remember I will post pictures of progress.
