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.

Hey Lycan,
If you're not happy with it you can give it to me (ha ha)
Let us know how it works on some deer?

Regards Steve.
