These you pretty much load and shoot. I have found this to be true in several different rifles now. If your rifle shoots it will shoot these bullets is pretty much what I have found.
I've had the opposite experience so far with my 180g .308 (C48) loads in a 300 RUM. I've tried five different loads, all with Retumbo, and the *best* group I could get was 1.1 MOA. Most loads were 1.5-1.7 MOA. This is in a gun that shoots the Barnes LRX at .7 MOA consistently. Granted, my gun seems to hate Retumbo, so I'm going to try some CE loads with Magnum (which my gun loves). I haven't written off the CE bullets completely yet, but if I can't get them to shoot at least as good as my LRX loads with Magnum, I'm checking out.
I really want them to work, because the 'on paper' performance potential is pretty good.
