Barnes TSX Load Data


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hey all,

Bought some 175 gr. Barnes Triple Shock bullets for my 7mm Rem Mag to make a pig bustin' load. Wondering if anyone had some load data and a good accurate powder. This is the only thing I load Barnes bullets for, is it worth buying a manual?

Two powders I use fairly often are AA 3100 and IMR 4831. If anyone knows of a slower burning powder that gives good accuracy and better case volume, I'd like to know.

Don't know what the Barnes manual costs but I have one of those "one caliber" manuals for 44 mag and it has Barnes data. I sure wish they published it in 32/20

I think they are $6-7.

Try this site out.

Be advised!!
Barnes bullets tend to like to be backed off the lands around 50 thousandths or so.

Good luck....

Thanks for the links, looks like a good site. Unfortunately, I only found load data for 140s. But I figure I'll just buy a Barnes manual.
Thanks for the heads up on the seating depth

Barnes says you can use the same loading data for the TSX bullets as they list for their XFB bullets.

My #2 manual shows the following for a 175 gr XFB:

IMR4831 - start 55.0 gr, max 60.0 gr

AA3100 - start 55.5 gr, max 60.5 gr.

Hope this helps. Do make sure the solid copper bullets are started at least .050" off the lands.

I apologize for that.
I didn't look through all the load data.

Acurate Reloading has a website that might be useful to you.

Hodgdon RETUMBO has been accurate for me, and it does a good job of filling up the 7mm Rem Mag case.

I have been really lucky so far with reducing the XLC loads by 2 grains and working up with the same powder. The .308 loads at barnes and the 30-06 and even now the 300 win mag for the new manual #4 are online. Perhaps the next will be 7 mag...loaddata.com has a good list of the barnes loads as well if you need them right away. Cheaptrick is right though the Barnes like to be off the lans at least .050 to get a "run" at the rifling. If you put them right up against the lans they WILL have excessive and dangerous pressure. The bullets are softer and tend to stick a little more, slower to get started than a harder gilding metal jacketed bullet. They do very well after they get started though and will shoot excellently.
