7 mm A-Max Discontinued

With the discontinuation of Hornady's A-Max bullets in 7 mm (284) it will be interesting to see if the new ELD-X bullets will perform. I've heard from more than one source that they do indeed work well out long as well as within 300 yards.

Do any of you have experience with this bullet yet?

Here is the link to some talk on the ELD-X bullets on this site:

Hi Lane, it is the ELD-M you need to focus on for your 7mm-08 as this is basically the same as the A-MAX. The ELD-X has a heavier jacket, a high BC version of the SST.

Magnum shooters will be happy to know that they will finally have a 180 grain A-MAX in the form of the ELD-M. BC's have yet to be confirmed.

Thanks Nathan. I missed that. I do get a bit confused with all of the bullet choices.
