Re: 300 rum 180 tsx bullet

[ QUOTE ]
Need to get access to a chronograph to do this right. I shot a .185 shot yesterday morning whith 102 grains of Retumbo and the 180 Scirroco without any pressure. Early season elk opens in 7 days and the bulls are bugling behind my house which is seriously effecting my work concentration! You are right this is an incredible canyon rifle but it has to pefected to science and you want to do it right the first time. Tye at Barnes knows his stuff when he talked about the variations in barrells and chambers. I have 2 Ultra's and they are night and day with bullets and pressures. I have been doing ballistic testing for the 180 Federal Fusion here in Lewiston where they are made and it will be another good bullet when it becomes available to the handloader. Lots of choices but you need a C-mike that goes to .0000 and a good chronograph.

[/ QUOTE ]i'm not happy with the fusion at all i shoot a yote at 30yrd with a 30-06 and 165 fusion the bullet did not exit and out of the same box i had one tumble on me at 600 the groups sucked to. i will leave the fusion to some other poor soul [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Kraky,
I have been there and done that!+1
The 200gr.Accubond,84 grs. Retumbo routinely shoots under .4" at 2964 fps.It is kind of hard compressing all of that powder under the looong Accubond in .300 Win.brass!

The TXS bullets do fly fast. I chrono'ed the 200gr TXSs at 3400+ out of my 300RUM with RL-25.

Re: 300 rum 180 tsx bullet

Jimmy---re compressing 84 grains in 300 win.....cant' hardly describe the sound. For me it went from "crunching" to making a sort of "creaking" noise.

DB--yikes 3400 out of a 200 grainer has got to be way over max unless you have a 28-30"barrel and still has to be maxed?? I got some 200 accubonds going 3350 out of my 30-378 the other day. Brass was shot...primer pockets gone. Quit shooting after 3 rounds and dis assembled remainder of bullets.

The bbl is a 30" Lilja 1/11, 3 groove, the bullets are moly. Shoots as well as 210gr JLKs, at least out to 400 yds. Haven't shot the TSXs beyond that. Primers are F210M and are not flat yet.
