338 "X" Bullet ?

I just picked up a box of 338 210gr Barnes "X" bullets. They aren't the Tripple Shock variety,just X Bullets. Can they be driven as fast as the TSX ? Also,I have noticed a pretty big difference in charge weights between the "X" and lead core slugs. Do I have to use only Barnes data for these bullets? Thanks a bunch .

    Where did you get them? They discontinued that bullet because of higher pressures and they didnt expand reliably.

    Yes you should follow the load data in the Barnes book. They tested them and know the pressures for a given powder.
