225 gr. X bullet in 338

I need a load for a Barnes 225 gr. "X" bullet in my 338 Win mag. I can't seem to find any on the internet? Would the loading data be the same as the 225 gr TSX? I also heard they like to jump a little bit. Any info is appreciated.

Nobody is shooting a Barnes "X" bullet in their 338?

I shoot a LOT of Barnes bullets, start @ .050 jump & adjust acordingly from there. I wouldn't use the TSX data for the original X bullet, the TSX creates less pressure than the X did/does which could get you into pressure problems. Send an email or phone the techs at Barnes, they are outstanding people & very eager to help their customers.
