Re: Barnes Triple-Shock reloading question.
My 280 Remington loves both the 140 and 150 grain Nosler BT but hates any Barnes bullet that I'd tried on it. On the otherhand, my Model 70 300 Win mag loves the 180 grain TSX and the Hornady BTSP. With 7-08 velocity, I don't think Barnes bullet is necessary. Why fix the wheel if it ain't broke. The 300 though is another story. As a matter of fact, I'm switching to Barnes 180 grain TSX on my 300 due to better bullet performance overall when compared to my proven Hornady 180 BTSP load. I can reach 3000 fps on a starting load of 74 grains of IMR 7848 with these bullets and the accuracy is outstanding.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.
