Re: Barnes TSX New Rang Report

My 22-250 likes to be clean before shooting Barnes. Even if you never shot Barnes before, the copper in the barrel will cause anamolies. Have you tried 380 the original 22-250 powder? Benchmark looks promising. Hang in there til you get it where you want it.

Don't have any 380 & the barrel was freshly cleaned also. I think a bit of play with seating depth & charge should fix it right up.

Re: Barnes TSX New Rang Report

Im a little late but Ive been loading the 53 gr TSX in my Rem 788 22-250 for the last few years. I use 34 grains of Varget , Win WLR primers, Win brass trimmed to 1.902, and COAL of 2.9". I get around .75 moa out of it. It has taken several whitetail without a loss all complete pass through and quarter size exit wounds. My son shot a 115# spike this last week at ten feet. Perfect heart shot. The deer acted like he hadn't been shot but piled up at thirty yards, quarter size exit and blood everywhere. I would not hesitate to shoot a whitetail with it at reasonable ranges. Bullet placement is everything. Just my opinion and first hand observations. Hope it helps.

Good Shooting!

Re: Barnes TSX New Rang Report

I had some of the same problems when I began loading tsx's for my .223. I found benchmark to be an excellent powder. The bullets liked a medium hot load and i managed a .085 group @ 100 by kissing the lands. A word of advice though, clean your barrel as these shells will foul your barrel quickly. Clean clean clean and when you think it's clean, hit it again or you'll produce those 4" flier groups all day.
