Creedmoor 143 Gr. ELD-X 145Yard shot on Texas Whitetail

By Bob Isaacks

December 4, 2018

First time out with a new rifle/caliber. Rifle is Savage Axis XP, 6.5 Creedmoor. Ammo is Hornaday Precision Hunter 143Gr. ELD-X.

Range was 145 yards. Amazing results with this new (to me) bullet. 9 point whitetail collapsed on the spot with heart shot.

Instant kill, no need to follow blood trail.

I am impressed with this combo!
