a good place to start is .050 jump with the Barnes TSX bullets . they like a jump . here are instructions that were packed with the TSX's when I was using them . Jim

I have found using barnes bullets that they like a lot of jump and generally the harder you push them the better they group. I would start at .050" jump if your mag allows or just seat them to fit the mag. I would start at 41.0 grains of BL(C)-2 and work up. You should be able to push these bullets 2575-2625 out of a 24" barrel.

Re: 180gr TSX load help

Thank you guys for the help. Got them loaded up lastnight, and went with .05. Going to shoot them today and hope they work. My buddy is freaking out because he doesn't think we can get this done before he leaves.

I hope he throws me down some meat when he gets back. After all 200 pounds of cut and wrapped meat goes a long way.
