    Just recently ordered a box of the 145gr LRX for my 7mm mag. I have loaded and hunted with Barnes for several years with outstanding results. I cant seem to find load data for these particular bullets anywhere!

    Probably isnt much out there yet. I would either call Barnes or use data from the 150ttsx and just start on the light end and work up. itll be a little extra work but not much.

    A good place to start would be H4831sc and Magpro.
    H4831 - max will be around 65 grs depending on the lot.
    Magpro - max will be around 70 grs.
    Work up slowly as every gun is different Magpro should give you higher velocities but 4831 will be more consistent.

    LRX is a Great Bullet!!

    I'm a huge Fan of Barnes, expensive but IMHO the best hunting bullet available. I'm really excited about the LRX and can't wait for them to get here so load development can begin.

    Coyotezapper I'm glad to see the reccommendation of h4831sc, as I just bought some to try. I've always used imr4831 but have noticed better results out of anything "sc" in the other powders I use.

    If I knew how to post a pic from my phone I would show u the devastating results on one of two yotes we shot this morning.

    I'm using up the last of my standard X bullets and they really do the job! It literally left an exit hole about 8" in diameter!! I'm not a hide hunter, just a liberator for the turkey and deer!

    Can you email me the pics? rjd28@live.com
    If you like the original x bullets you are going to absolutely love the LRX!
