George Gardner of GAP riflesworked with Hornady on that cartridge, they were looking for a short action cartridge that would utilize high BC 140's to as before mentioned a limit of 3150 fps.
If that was the goal, seems like they failed. Highest numbers I have seen for a 140 are in the 2900fps range, same as the 6.5-284 (for a short action) or the 100+ year old long action 6.5-06.

You haven't googled Hornady's load data then for the cartridge. MRP and RL26 pushes the 143 ELDX to 3150 and the max load for the 147 ELD is 3050 but with Retumbo and RL26. There isn't much data yet, but give it time and you'll have plenty.
