Barnes 285 gr 338

Was thinking someone on here might have some experience with these 285 grain triple shock bt bullets. Currently using 300 smk,but they do alot of damage. I have had good luck with 225 triple shock's in the past,just thinking the 285 would have a better bc.

Re: Barnes 285 gr 338

I am intetested in this as well being a California resident and not being able to use lead in certain areas.Anyone know the BC on these.How would they shoot out of a 1- 10 twist 338 AX. Would appreciate any info on these as I also am going to use 300 SMK but would like to be able to shoot the Barnes 285 when needed.

Talked to Barnes and they said that the BC. is .585 They had no load data for the 285 in 338 rum,so I'm still looking.

I'm interested as well. Might be a good second choice behind the 300smk.

Have you considered the 225 TTSX? I couldn't find the BC but you could get a lot more speed.
