The 150 gr Lazerheads worth it?
and how big a difference will there be in overall performance between them and a 130 gr XBT at 500Yds?
Any FPS gains between them and the 3 shock?
Anyone have load data for the Lazerheads in a 300 win mag?
I have the Barnes number 2 manual and it shows a 150gr XBT at just shy of 3300 fps however thats with a 24 inch barrel what gains should I get with the 26 inch on the sendaro? and the Lazerhead?

You will most likely gain between 25-50 FPS per inch depending on the powder youre using. The lazerheads may be a little faster due to the coating on them.
The differance between the 130 and 150 is large at 500 yards due to the higher BC of the 150 grain. Youre better suited with a heavier bullet with a higher BC for killing deer at 500 yards. Barnes may make an awesome ML projectile, bearing in mind ML's are typicaly a short range weapon. Some rifles will shoot Barnes bullets at LR like a houseafire but alot will not. If youre dead set on them, I would try the 180 TSX. If those dont work in your rifle, try the 178 AMAX and the 180 ACCUBOND. These bullets wont let you down.
Welcome to the board.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
