Re: Barnes Triple-Shock reloading question.

I guess I'll ask here rather than new thread. I'm looking for Barnes reloading data and length from lands for 165grTSX in 308Win and 140grTSX in 270WSM.

Re: Barnes Triple-Shock reloading question.

Depends on what the barrel likes. Experiment and see which cartridge length works the best for you. No two reamers are exactly the same.

Chawlston,
I was looking for Barnes recommmendation. I found out that Barnes recommends.050" off lands. I'll work from there. I also found out that TSX bullets can be loaded 1-2 grs more than Barnes X bullet info.

Re: Barnes Triple-Shock reloading question.

ArcheryElk,
I have had fantastic accuracy with the 100gr Barnes TSX in my .25-06 Rem. Sendero. I usually load it with RL22 and seat .010" off the l-a-g. These bullets are as accurate as any (Yes, even Nosler Ballistic Tips) in my rifle.
The good thing about the Barnes bullet is that you can load light projectiles for a specific caliber. The 120gr may be just the ticket for the 7mm-08. As for powder, I load IMR and Hodgdon 4350 for the 7X57 Mauser, which is the ballistic twin of the 7-08. Hope this helps. JohnnyK.
