    Ogle buck, to be totally honest, I am sure they are going to shoot just fine. In fact, I'm just going to load a few , and chrono them, and then I'll know what my speed is. I M expecting about what I got with the 140 TTSX, which is 3369 ave. With the BC being
    .489, a 225 zero will hit anything out to 400 with a center mass hold.
    Or, I can plot it with a ballistics program, and " Dial " it.
    Either way, I am very confident with any of the Barnes bullets, and really happy about the potential of the LRX. They also make a 168 grain, but I'm only shooting whitetail. If I where to go on a elk, or big mule deer hunt, I might opt for the heavier pill. That's just my thinking.

    Update:

    Had the throat looked over by my smith and he confirmed the leade was boogered. He set her back and redid it with a new reamer. He even refinished the barrel, action and bottom metal.

    The good news: Shoots .5 moa or less all day at 250 yards withe the 162 A-Max.

    The bad news: The barrel is now only 24.5 inches.

    The good news: At 77gr of 7828 she still chronos at 3220 and I think I like the balance.

    I'll take it.
