Bullet seating depth and load suggestions for Tipped TSX?
Shooting a Remington 700 CDL Stainless Fluted in .300 WSM.
Have tried the following bullets:
So far the 180 SST shoots the best. Followed by the 165 Accubond and 180 Interbond.
Figured I might give the Barnes a try so bought a box of the 168 Tipped TSX.
According to my Hornady gauge, the bullet seems to hit the lands at about 2.875". Ive heard people say get Barnes .050" off the lands. Is this still the general consensus? So I am thinking start at 2.825"?
Any recommendations on loads? I am thinking about trying RL15, Varget, RL17 and N550. Thinkin I will stick with 215M primers?
These things are expensive to experiment with. If nothing shoots well within 50 of these things, I guess I will stick to the 180 SSTs as my elk, deer and black bear load.
