    I am looking at trying the Barnes Triple Shock 140 grain for the 7mm-08 and 6.5X55 I am looking at a heavier bullet. I am looking at loads for a winter moose hunt in Alaska. I reside in Dillingham Alaska. I have been reloading for about 6 months predomininatly for my 338 win mag and 30-06. I want to get a reload ready for my wifes rifles. Thanks in advance.gun)

    I would forget the TSX and load the 145 or 168 grain LRX. I am shootig the 145 grain LRX out of my 7mm-08 and it shoots well.

    Thanks, I will try those. I have shot some reloads of the 140 grain TSX. 5 shot pattern of a 1"1/2 at a hundred. I know I can do better. It is always fun experimenting.
