300 RUM and 168gr Barnes TTSX

Does anyone have a good 3400fps load for the Barnes 168 Tipped TSX? I have RL22,25 and Retumbo to test but would appreciate some experienced input.

Thanks a lot!

Here's some load data....

308_15_165

I'm curious as to the use for the load. I recently acquired a 300rum and seeing that I can push 210grain bullets at 3200, I wonder, why go with a lighter bullet? With the heavier bullet you get better BC, less wind deflection, more energy down range......

It's actually a customer request and he has a 1 in 11 twist Lilja barrel. He is a velociity hound. I shoot 180's @ 3300 and very accurately.

Thanks for the link!

Break out the ballistics chart and show your customer the way....

When it comes to downrange performance, heavy bullet going fast beats light bullet going faster every time.

Re: 300 RUM and 168gr Barnes TTSX

I have several 300 RUMs and have loaded for others. RE25 behind 180 grain Accubonds. Recently I found a load of H1000 behind 168 grain Nosler CTs that works great. I would also try that...around 95.0 grains and up would work nicely. FED215m primers. Good luck.
