I chose to change to the 168 TTSX from the 165 tsx because of the higher bc of the 168. the both shoot to the same point of impact to 300 but the 168 drifts less at 400-500.

good info. If you don't mind me asking, how far off the lands did you seat, and did you have trouble fitting into the mag box with the 168 ttsx?

With the price of Barne$ bullets, its best to find these things out BEFORE investing in 50 bullets....;)

Re: 300wsm budget tackdriver

my best advice from 15 years reloading for barnes bullets is that the triple shocks love freebore. Don't be overly concerned with seating them to the lands. Just make sure they function in your mag-box and don't crowd your powder too much.
An important tip is to use an oal gauge to measure your seating depth due to the fact that barnes bullets have issues with the length of their bullets. If you set your die to seat at a certain depth you'll see huge discrepancies at the ogive of the bullets, my best advice for super accurate TSX's is to measure each round and turn your depth out each time after you seat a bullet.
cheers!

Re: 300wsm budget tackdriver

here's one of my 165 TSX's from my whitetail last year. My buddy greg had a bunch of whitetails eating his hay-bales and invited me to his farm to shoot a meat buck. The shot was 350yds and the deer was quartering away. The bullet impacted on the last rib and penetrated all the way to the 3'rd vertebrae of the neck. Only a handful of neck meat was lost and the buck gave one kick and died on the spot.





and I ate like a king last winter!
