Barnes 145 grain LRX bullets

Has anyone loaded these pills for the 7mm-08? If so would you be kind enough to share your load data?
Thank you for your results.

Re: Barnes 145 grain LRX bullets

Thank you Elktaxi 1 for your info. I loaded some up with BLC2 powder per Barnes suggestion with different col. and got some good results. You didn't chrono any of your loads? I got a little over 2800 with the most accurate loads and I got into the high 2800's with an ok load.

Re: Barnes 145 grain LRX bullets

I had the col starting at 2.8", 2.775" & 2.750" for my first session. I'm going to try the RL15 & RL19 along with some 2000MR powder which is just a bit faster than the RL15 supposed to be for med.-heavy 308 loads but I have used it in some other calibers and works very well . I'm testing these in my Fathers rifle as it is a Mauser action with a 26" barrel so I should be getting the same results or close to what you are getting. I'll let you know after this weekend if it doesn't rain too much?

we also found that the pub. bc is not even close we think at 3000 it is about .530. but it shoots alot flatter the the pub amount.

Re: Barnes 145 grain LRX bullets

I'm loading 46.5 gr IMR 4350 - RP 9 1/2 primer - LRX 145 gr in Hornady once fired brass (trimmed) - 2.78 COL

.70" four shot group @ 107 yds. - 95+ deg. amb. -barrel hot

I worked this load up from 44.0 gr in .5 gr increments up to 48 gr.

48 gr was the most accurate load but showed signs of high pressure

Sorry - no chrono - I think it got too hot in the sun.

Good shooting.
