338 win. and 225 TSX

Hi Folks,
I am in need of some good loads, for my ruger 77 338, with 225grain Barnes TSX bullets. I have shot the XLCs but am wanting to change to the TSX. Hope some of you have some Ideas. I'm not looking for maximum velocity just good accurate loads.
Thanks

Re: 338 win. and 225 TSX

I would try Hodgdon 414. It is a spherial powder and it compacts and measures very well. Since you are a barnes I would start at 65 grains up and measure each case for head expansion before and after the shot. I have loaded the same load and have gone up to 72 grains but that is in my rifle and my load and please start much lower!
