Re: 30-378 Load Suggestions: 180 gr and 200 gr TTSX and 180 gr E-Tip

Thanks for the loads and tips... I just picked up the E-Tips and am waiting for the TTSX's to come in. Anyone know where to start with the 200 grain TTSX's? Also, I just picked up some Remington Large Mag primers (the local shop was out of the Federal). I'm wondering if the difference in brands will make much of a difference? Has anyone seen proof of this changing their groups?

Thanks again.

Here is a load that I ran in a Weatherby Mark V.

Weatherby brass
2.902 case length
3.813 oal
Federal large mag primers
108g Retumbo
3332 fps

I started at 105g and worked up and settled back down to the 108g. This oal was set to the magazine. Assuming that you will also have plenty of free bore, set to the magazine should work well for you as well. Be careful.

This grouped .5 moa at 700yrds.

Steve, Just wondering what barrel you're working with here. I'm wondering if my 26" barrel (1 and 10" twist) will be long enough to burn something as slow as Retumbo...

For multiple reasons.. The main one is because I'm planning on getting into reloading for the next 30-50 years as it is something that is something I'm growing very interested in. I figure I might as well start sooner than later as I'm 25 years old. The next is that in the long run, it should pay itself out and eventually save some money. I enjoy the idea of being able to test a large number of load combinations to learn what will work best for my setup. Hopefully one day I will be able to punch those targets on out to 1000 yards..
