300RUM 130gr.Barns TSX reloads?

Can anyone help me out. I have had successfully reloaded 180 Failsafes and 155 Barns through my 24" barreled Sako. I'm looking to reload 130 Tsx. I like using H1000 but open to sugestions. I was told to start with 97 to 102grs.

With this does anyone have the balistics for this combo?

Re: 300RUM 130gr.Barns TSX reloads?

The only way I can justify using 130g bullets from a 300 RUM is so you can shoot the throat out in 100 rounds so you can rebarrel it. Other then that, I see no practical use to the 130g bullet. It surely will shoot flat, but thats about it. As far as long range hutning goes, your at the total opposite end of the spectrum and way of thinking. Light/fast bullets only get you so far, where heavy/slow bullets will get you a lot farther and do so with more energy and more FPS and less wind drift.

You should be using at the smallest, 180g bullets from your 300 RUM to use the caliber to its full potential, and its better with 200+ bullets.

I shot a few (50) 125g NBT's from my 300 RUM at 3900fps. They were a BOMB to say the least and I doubt they would have even killed a coyote with there lack of penetration, probly would have knocked him out more then anything. It would totally vaporize a gallon jug of water out to 300 yards.

I'd use the 130g barnes on antelope and deer out to 600 yards or so, but thats about it. There is A LOT better bullets to be used out of the 300 RUM then the 130g barnes.

Couldn't agree with Remingtonman more! You also really need to take into account the rate of twist of the barrel before you start jumping around on bullet weights.

I'm very new at this reloading in referance to the people on this talk site. Keep giving me ponters because I try to take them all in. However I used to use 180 failsafes on moose and 155 barns x for deer. With the success with the barns on our 250lb.+ deer with clean pass through, I started using them on moose. With the forestry clear cuts, the long shots are almost inevetable, and the wolves don't know what hit them. With this, I never went back to the 180's and figure 130's were the way to go.

Well I and a few others on here can attest to what a 200g AB at 3200fps does to deer and elk. It HAMMERS them and leaves exits as well. Its also a 1000 yard load/bullet if you and your rifle are up to it.

That 130g barnes will fall flat on its as beyond 600 yards.
