    I need a load for a Barnes 225 gr. "X" bullet in my 338 Win mag. I can't seem to find any on the internet? Would the loading data be the same as the 225 gr TSX? I also heard they like to jump a little bit. Any info is appreciated.

    I shoot a LOT of Barnes bullets, start @ .050 jump & adjust acordingly from there. I wouldn't use the TSX data for the original X bullet, the TSX creates less pressure than the X did/does which could get you into pressure problems. Send an email or phone the techs at Barnes, they are outstanding people & very eager to help their customers.

    I used to push a 225x with 77 grains of RL19. this was a max load, start at 74grains and work up.
