I shoot that bullet in Winchester cases ahead of a Federal 210 primer and 59 grains of H-4350 for 3020 FPS in a 26 3/4" Kreiger barrel

so your using the load data relating to the TSX bullets? Are those applicable to a TTSX bullet?



Where did you find the data for the H4350 powder...do you have the safe ranges for that/

4064 seems a bit fast to me. It should work, but I'd be inclined to try 4350 first.

Good luck.

try and track down a 1-3 barne reloading cause it will show you a big verity of powders to use. The newest book omly shows a couple powders to use. I guess its what works best out of there test gun,but may not be the bast out of yours though.

You are just the guy I want to ask. What was your loa? How far off the lands was your load? No trick question here. I just never had a lot of luck with this bullet & powder and and curious what you did different than I did (so far just the primer). Did it take high pressure before the extreme spreads settled down?

Thanks.

All I did was load to SAAMI COAL. I find that TSX thrive at the top end of loads. All barrels and chambers are different, other rifles may or may not like this load. Mine likes most loads and is easy to feed

What are you planning to shoot with it (type of game or paper) and at what range?
