I'm looking for a starting point with the 168's possibly with R-17.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here's some data from last spring. My rifle did not like 168 TTSX's and RL17 for some reason. You'll see the the 180 E-Tips took more poder and had higher velocity. Another forum member got much better results with RL17 and the 168 TTSX's.
* Note: add 8 fps to compensate distance (14 ft) of chrony

The reload manual does not list any load data for the 300wsm with a 168 gr. ttsx projectile. It was not included when it was printed.I'm looking for a starting point with the 168's possibly with R-17.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks for the info. I am looking for a load with ttsx bullets. I will call Barnes customer service monday. The reload manual shows R 15 for the 165 load and w760 at3101ft. I may try that load.
