Anyone shot the 338cal 265gr TTSX yet?

Just wondering if anyone had any experience with this new bullet yet?

If so, any load data would be great, this maybe the next best thing since the 300SMK was born...

Any idea what the B.C. of this bullet is?

I bet it is higher than the Berger .338 calibre bullets! Oh hang on? Berger don't have one yet.

Re: Anyone shot the 338cal 265gr TTSX yet?

I have shot three out of my Edge over the Pact kind of a pressure ladder. 95-97 of H1000 2891-2931fps grouped in the 3s. This was out of 28 Broughton this chamber has a long throat. Looks like I should of started at 97grs. I will go up to 100 on my next trip to the range. Seated too fit my 3.9 in magizine they just start crunching at 97grs. of H1000. Might need to try 7828 or RL22. The BC should be over 700 I hope. I wish that they will open at extended ranges. Big spring bears should work for test medium...

im surprised that there that low.... afterall, the 265gr ttsx bullets are longer than a 300SMK...

And it annoys the hell outa me why they bother to quote a G1 BC when a pointy boat tail bullet clearly fits the G7 model more appropriately.

i guess the proof will be in the shooting...

keep us posted, ill post my results once ive shot them next week...

The monometal TSX does not have the same mass as a lead core bullet and therefore has a lower BC even if it is it longer. Still sounds like a good bullet to me!
