Hard to read I know.... I would highly recommend you switch from the TSX to the TTSX, your BC will jump from .408 to .450 (Barnes has been known to be conservative with their BC data) & should provide more reliable expansion when the range gets "out there". Magnum is a favorite of mine in 6-284, you should be pleased with it.

Re: 150 Grain Barnes TSX

So, would you say that I could possibly use that 150 grain load data as a starting point and work up slowly as usual? I normally work up slowly from the bottom up watching for pressure signs of course. I am at 72.5 and not totally pleased with the load yet but was nervous to go further without any data. Haven't seen any pressure signs yet though
