Re: \"No Lead\" bullet requirement for my hunt
Just to add my .02 here. The Barnes Triple shock are the way to go!! Just be aware they are sensitive to the distance they are loaded off the rifling. With a Stoney Point OAL indicator, you can find the distance that is accurate in your rifle. I found that the Barnes did best loaded pretty hot as well. Not suggesting anything drastic, just they started really tightening up with higher loads. BTW, never had any trouble with copper fouling with the TSX, either.
Factory suggests you seat at .050 off the rifling to start, but try them closer as well as you work up the load for you.
The TSX seems to perform "bigger" then its listed weight, I used the 150 grain in my 300wsm for a 1 shot drop on an elk at 675 yards. Through and through performance.
