Re: anyone using 300 RUM and barnes 168 ttsx

I shoot the 210 Bergers now too, but I worked up a load in the past with 168 ttsx. I was using 97 grains of Rel 22 and Fed 215's wa COL 3.690" for 3670fps and were grouping 3/4 moa! It was definately a max load in my factory rifle, but shot like a lazer beam! Barnes gave me an estimated G1 BC of .450. Never did shoot anything with it, but I'm sure it would do just fine. Good luck.

Re: anyone using 300 RUM and barnes 168 ttsx

well for my part i'm using the 168 ttsx for this reason first



bottom left is a 5 shot group using 200 accubonds (shot a couple .75" 3 shots groups but inconsistent)
top right is a 3 shot group using the 168 ttsx (.246") just to make sure i was doing everything right and that the accubond results were not shooter error.

ttsx is consistently between .25" and .65".
since my max shooting distance is 500 yard and longest shot so far is 409 y.
the ttsx work great. will penetrate most any animal at most any angle and reach the vital everytime. maybe i should try the 180 TTSX but why would i bother really???
some will say that 3200 fps is 300 win. velocity. but as opposed to the winny
i get it easy AND long brass life.
and the rifle as sentimental value for me. so i don't want to change it.

still working on the accubond load anyway it IS a good bullet afterall

If it works for you and you dont need the extra weight or bc use what works. Looks good

I'd say if they shoot that good out of your rifle stick with them. A 168 grain Barnes will kill anything at 500 yds. I'm running low on the old blue xlc 180s which shoot great in my 300 ultra, so I've tried E-tips with good success. 300 ultra 180gr E-tip
99 gr retumbo- oal. 3.675- velocity 3390 fps- cloverleaf 100yd groups.

If you have not bought the TSX you may want the consder trying the 168 grain etip instead. They are a little cheaper and they have .503 BC which runs right with the 180s.

Launch this approx 100 FPS faster than a 180, carry approx the same downrange energy, shoot flatter, less wind drift, higher impact velocity, and 95% weight rention.
