anyone using 300 RUM and barnes 168 ttsx

has anyone had any luck with the 168 barnes ttsx out of the 300 RUM?
If so what is your recipe for this round I just got some and plan on hopefully using this one to take a black bear I tried to get the 180 sciroccos to shoot with my rifle but had no luck I tried just about everything with it but had no luck and had to get the 168 ttsx instead of the 180's due to availability...
Thanks for your help

I have in the past. But I was shooting to 500 yds with it. My gun was a stock Rem 700 and the load was 94 grains of R 25 w/ Fed 215 primers.

I have some 168 TTSX's that I might run through my RUM for grins. I would expect to get 3500-3600 out of them, but the Barnes bullets dont have the greatest BC.

My list of bullets to try will be...

180 E-Tips
177 GS HV's
200 AB's
210 JLK's
210 Berger's

Hopefully I can get one or two good shooters out of these.

I have run 168 TSX out of my 300 RUM. Same as above, 94 grains of RL 25 and Fed 215M primers for 0.8 MOA @ 3425 fps. I now shoot the 180 accubond with a very similar recipe and it shoots bug holes.

Re: anyone using 300 RUM and barnes 168 ttsx

hi! everyone
i know this post is a year old but decided to reply anyway.
i load the 168 ttsx in my 300 rum as do 2 of my friends
the load that work for the 3 of us is 94 gr rl25 and a coal of 3.650" and cci 250 primers. velocity is 3200 fps
it give us 0.5" average 3 shots group. just tried my knew scope today
which is 16X instead of the 9X i had and got a .246" 3 shot group.

it's the most accurate bullet i tried so far.

To me shooting that light of a bullet in that big of a case is kind of a wast. I would jump up to a 200 AB or even 210 bergers. I dont know what you are using it for but i cant think of a case were the 165 would be better.

i'm with Booney, the 200 AB and Retumbo is a great combo for the 300RUM. put the 168's in the 30-06.
