    The manufacturer recommends anywhere between 0.030" and 0.070" away from the lands. They say to start at 0.050" away from the lands. I have only used the 180 grains tsx, 0.050" away and shot extremely well in my LSS 300 RUM.

    I have shot the 168 tsx alot out of my 300 weatherby vanguard rifle and it is awsome ! I shoot a compressed load for best accuracy with H1000 ? Not sure how far off the lands though ?
