I would definitely start low and work up. I know when I tried to load some 120 TSX's up to the same load I had using with 120 Nosler Ballistic tips in one of my 6.5-284's, I started showing pressure signs with a charge 2.5 grains lower than the NBT's. I was also getting the same velocity at the 2.5 grain lower charge. Don't take any chances.
