I got a box of 143 norma bondstrike to try out, haven't loaded any yet but laid them side by side with some other 6.5's
150-ABLR, 143-Bondstrike, 143-ELDX, 129-ABLR
Then filed down the Norma and Hornady.
When I get them loaded i will update with more.

Looks to be a substantial bullet. I will be interested to see how they perform for you. Are you intending to send some into jugs?

Looks quite possible that the Norma Bondstrike is a rebranded ELD-X or at least built for Norma by Hornady

Have some loaded up at my ELDX charge and different brass, still 1.5gr below max just to see what they will do 16597573119235899253223876667468.jpg

They shot under moa, and about 3/4 lower than the eldx. I will try the same load with the now once fired brass and go from there.
I was happy, hadn't shot that rifle since November hunting last year
