TTSX bullets and jump

Who shoots them and do they like a big jump or do they like the lands?

Also do they like to be pushed hard with a max load or not?

    I loaded them in my 06 jumped them and had them at max load. They grouped real good for the effort I put into the load. I didn't mess with the seating depth (set to recommended) and I only put together a couple of loads at the max end. They shot under 3/4" with no tuning. I decided on a different load so I didn't follow up on them.

    I have shot them in a number of different guns. Almost all have shot them very well. Barnes supplies you with instructions and they tell you to start 50 thousands off the lands. You can move them closer or further away from the lands. Most of the time I have found that 50 thousand works well, but if it does not I move them further away. Also in my experience they like max or near max loads.

    My magazine doesn't let me reach the lands so I start at max mag length and work my way deeper into the case in .040", 6 shot strings for a rough seating depth test. In my gun, longest seating depth produces the worst groups.

    In my WSM I used the Barnes COAL which is a decent jump for my rifle. Plus, I couldn't go any longer due to magazine length.

    I ended up below max for my best group. When I got to max, they started opening up. 5/8" at 100yds was my best group from a stock gun.

    If the powder is stable at your selected charge it will be quicker to work up ( deeper ) in .003" increments where you will find sweet spot within .020" in most all cases.
