Re: Barnes 224 caliber TSX - bad groups
Thank you for replying. I had the same thoughts for the 223 load, I have a 13 yr old daughter and wanted a super accurate / low recoil round for her to take her first deer with. Plus, the wife doesn't like even a 243 level boom/recoil.
At least I am not the only one with bad groups, like I wrote in the original post, I have heard that these bullets are finicky, so I am not that surprised... just to see the variance though, that got my attention. I could probably live with 1.5" but 4" no bueno. My next thought is the Trophy bonded or Partition bullets.
My barrel has a 1-12 twist, so 60 gr Partitions maybe pushing it.
Please let me know what you settled on and what you might recommend.
Remington 25-06 - thanks for your response. I have a 25-06 that shoots factory loaded 115 gr, CT B-Tips very well, so had not looked to the TSX with it. As mentioned above, it is reassuring to hear that I am not the only one that has had problems!
