I'm going with the 180 Etip in my 300 WSM. A lot better BC

What are the BCs - what load did you develop - and how did it group?

Re: 300WSM / RL19 / Barnes Tipped TSX 180 gr.

the difference in BC would be BFD to me.how they shot out of my gun and terminal performance would be my top considerations for selecting a bullet.

i recently tested some 168 ttxs bullets and was very impressed.first test was at 30 yds with a mixture of plywood and milk jugs. second was at 540 yds with only milk jugs lined up. wanted to see what they did at a little distance with a soft tissue hit. recovered bullets look identical. if i could post a picture of these bullets you couldn't tell which one was shot at what distance.

Re: 300WSM / RL19 / Barnes Tipped TSX 180 gr.

I'm confused . Asking about recommended loads with R19 / 300WSM and TTSX 180 gr bullets and I am getting reports and recommendations on other bullets and weights. Start your own thread.

Hopefully someone has used this combination and will share their experience. Someone must use this combination.:confused:

Thanks

Re: 300WSM / RL19 / Barnes Tipped TSX 180 gr.

Try this

Start 62.5 Max 69.5

COAL 2.850

I dont shoot a 300wsm but a 300wm. This data is from the Barnes site.

My experience with Barnes is they like to be pushed hard. Be safe and Good Luck

Thanks - I actually have the Barne's reloading manual. I was hoping to receive recommended loads which would help be avoid doing a complete loading ladder for this combination and focus more into a sweet spot range.
