    I runtime 220g ELD X bullets for hunting. And they work just fine. 300WM is very potent pushing those pills around 2,900fps.

    I didn't get a pic of the bullets out of the brass. But the A Tip 230s are roughly 15% longer which had me worried about stability through Pappabear's cans. We shot a few groups with the cans off, and saw nothing to worry about.

    Here's some pics of the loaded ammo with the bullets seated using the LE Wilson seating die at the same setting for both loads.

    That is a dead sexy bullet.

    How do the aluminum tips hold up to recoil in the box magazine, do they get beat up- or is this a "load one at a time" only deal?

    They hold up great. They're much more robust than a polymer tip bullet. No wiggle, play, or spinning of the tips in the bullet's jacket.
