I don't have any experience with them yet, but I would start with the Hornady Match 108gr ELDm and the Barnes Precision Match 112gr maybe? Any factory ammo with Berger's?

Yeah, Federal loads the 105 Berger, but we are not finding much on the shelves.

I had some 6.5 PRC Hornady eld X on the chrono the other day and was a bit disappointed by the 60 fps ES over 10 shots.

Prime seems to be out of stock as well. We only need 1000 rounds. lol

The factory Hornady match with 108s ive never seen shoot bad. I’ve seen it shoot An ES of 11 over ten shots in a dude’s gun. And Justin watts took 4th at a national match this past weekend shooting factory 108s. I’d give it a long hard look.

Hearing a lot of good things about the Federal with 105 Bergers. Trying to find some is the challenge. I am going to grab a box of Hornady 108 eldm's tomorrow, but I hear they are seated way long and may be too long for my chamber. We shal see.

Yes, Thank you. we have found those and 10 other boxes. But we will need 800 to 1000 rounds by the end of the month. But this is a good start.
Do you know the COAL, of cartridges

Seating Data on the Hornady 108 ELD Match.

OAL base to tip = 2.785" on average with up a wide spread of .007" plus

Base to O Give with a Hornady #24 Comparator = 2.245" with about a .004" spread in the 10 checked.

These loads are seated about .110" too long for our chamber. Once we find a load that shoots we may have to ream the throat out a bit.

Not yet. But we are scrambling to find some of each to test.

Side question would you expect all factory 6 Creedmoor ammunition to cycle in a Gas Gun AR10 6 Creedmoor?
