Re: 265 TTSX in 338

Elkregulator, you are right about the 210 swift scirroco at .510 BC. I don't know why that bullet is not more popular. It is an excellent bullet for all the 338's. It makes a great rifle out of the 338 win mag. In the big 338's it shoots very flat and enough BC to go 1000 yards easily. At 3560 fps I drive it in my 338-378 it is sheer terror on anything. I have mentioned that bullet on here a few times but it just never caught on. I push it near 3300 fps out of my rem 700 338 RUM and it does a good job there also. I think the 225 AB at .550 BC just makes it to easy to go up 15 grains. But the 210 swift is a much stronger, tougher bullet than the accubond and worth considering.

Gentlemen,

Could you please let me know how you load your ammo for TTSX 265 and TTSX 225?

What kind of powder you use and how much.

Thank you

If you could tell me how you load your TTSX 265 bullets for 338 Lapua I would greatly appreciate it.

What kind of powder and how many grains?

Re: 265 TTSX in 338

Id stick with the 300 SMK for wind bucking abilities at LR period, thats why you had it built around that bullet, and for the shear energy, right??

Unless your an expert wind reader, you need all the advantage you can get on your side.

At LR, the least of your worries is how flat shooting something is, thats what a rangefinder and target knobs are for. Your main worry is wind which im sure your well aware of, and nothing matches the 300g SMK, especially not a Barnes...I wouldn't shoot them if my life depended on it.

Biggest exit hole I ever saw in a deer was from a 100g XLC from my 25-06 at 3400fps. Buck was about 150 yards, bullet entered the onside shoulder and exited the offside shoulder leaving a pie plate size exit hole, could not believe it.

I like Barnes bullets. I use them in my 25-06. I wish they made some 100gr TTSX 6mm's.

Interesting read. I figured with a 338 Lapua you could shoot 300 grains of jello at something and kill it!! Ha Ha. Just curious if the Barnes would pencil through the animal?
