I tried 168 tsx but only load that was fairly accurate was 63 gr of H4350 (3/4). Was wanting opinion for 150's (packing in for blacktail) and 168 or 180s for elk. Its a light gun with a pac-nor barrel 3 contour fluted and only 23". Any suggestions and powder choices would be great. Thank
I shoot the 168 gr Berger VLD backed by 64 gr of H380 at 3100 fps. This is in a 24" barrel. Groups are great and SD and ES over the chrony are pretty good. Hittin steel at 1125 yds with good results. And The Berger VLD is a great game stopper, shot my last four deer with them. Dropped in their tracks with a good high shoulder shot placement.
my brother actually owns the gun. a win model70. he shoots hornady 150gr, I think its the sst. deadly on elk this year and devastating on deer. he loads 70-71grs of r-19. for 3300fps checked it with my crony. it will hold 3/4 -1/2 groups. sweet gun.
Since you probably already have the bullets, you may want to try a load I have had great success with. I am shooting the 168gr TSX bullets behind 68 gr of H4831SC with Fed 215M. I am getting easy sub-inch groups out of my HS Precision handgun. I suspect the accuracy is even better than that but I am not. I have not run it over the chrony yet as the accuracy was all I was looking for but will this off season as I prep to shoot longer with that gun.
