Re: Where to start? Found the answer!

I'm pretty sure I tossed out the targets that I shot the .030 at, it was that bad. But mind you they were shot with a different powder (H1000) and at 200yd. This last group I posted was with H4831SC @ 100Yd. I'll put up some targets when I get back out again, maybe today or tomorrow.

Re: Where to start? Found the answer!

I have 25 x 265 LRX. I'll try a .050 jump to the lands. I'm also going to try H4831SC (must faster than H869 & Retumbo). Maybe Barnes just like to "hit" the lands faster. Hope to post the targets next week.

By the way, I loaded up my trusty 300 grain SMKs/Retumbo and shot a .5" group right out of the shoot today. They are just so predicable and cosistant.

Solids ( like TTSX ) do not obdurate like lead core bullets when contacting the lands. They need to jump so there is not an instant pressure spike. When I first started loading the Barnes X bullet ( the original X ) I thought I knew more than Barnes and I loaded them right on the lands with a recipe I had for a Ballistic Tip and I am lucky that nothing catastrophic happened. The only two I shot collapsed the cases at the shoulder. Why it took two before I realized what was going on I don't know. I pulled all of the bullets and checked the powder weights and then tried this load again jumping with no pressure signs seen. The original X was a little softer so I started using Acculube 10X coating on them and this combo worked so well I have never looked back. I now coat them myself using hBn even though the new TTSX have pressure rings and are a harder copper. These bullets "KILL." I load two bullets for each of my hunting rifles. 1 Berger VLD and 1 TTSX and I jump them both but for different reasons.

No real answer for that. They all differ. Some slow, some fast.

7MM STW 140 TTSX H1000 ( getting ready to try 145 LRX )
7MM Rem Mag 120 TTSX H4350 or N560 ( much faster )
338-06 225 TTSX Varget
25-06 100 TTSX H4350
6.8 SPC 110 TSX H322
7mm-08 Ackley 120 TTSX Varget

Re: Where to start? Found the answer!

I know I haven't had the chance to do any more loading. It's been pretty busy at work but i have not given up on them yet (I sill have about 15 left).

What load setup are you using with the Hornady's?
