    My experience is with the 180gr Barnes TSX.

    1) Great accuracy
    2) RL22 78.0gr for 3150 out of a 24" barrel ( Win case, WLRM )

    I don't know about the 200 but I load the 180 TSX with 73.5 grain of IMR 7828 on Winchester Brass and Federal 215M primer. I'm averaging 3,000 fps from my Model 70 Laredo LRH. Accuracy is 3/4" @ 100 yards 3 shot group. I haven't really tested this load on games (been having a ball with my 308 lately)and field shooting were limited to 250 yards. What I like about TSX is that, I can attain 3000 fps with only 73.5 grain of IMR 7828 and to top it off, I gain 3 MOA of elevation from my scope when compared with 180 grain Hornady BTSP, the old standby load for this rifle. Not that I needed it - my Leupold Tactical has ample elevation to get me to 1200 yards - but it's comforting to know that I got that extra MOA. I have read that Factory published BC on the TSX were overated. I have a friend who use this bullet on his 308 and swears by them. I believed he use the 168 and he told me that the BC is right on the money. I will find out for myself. RJ

    I can't help you with the 200' as I use the 180's just curious as to why the 200 as opposed to the 180 because the bc is better for the 180

    With the weight factor of Barnes TSX, the 180 is equal to a 200 grain regular bullet. Might try the 180 and see how it works. Good luck.

    I use 180's for everything.i came across these at a good deal.i have never used anything over 180's.I got this just to play around with.
    So this is just for paper use right now.
    So this is something i'm just messing around with and was looking for advice.I'm new to reloading so any help i'm thankful for.

    Barnes states to seat triple shok bullets 30 thousands off the lands, I tried it with 25 caliber triple shoks and went from 2" group at 100yds to 1/2" group (5shot)

    Like everyone has stated the BC is higher on the 180's vs. the 200g. Also the 200grains aren't BOAT TAIL, while the 180g are.

    If you contact Barnes they'll give the loads for that cartridge.
