NITRO,NITRO said:I have a box of .358" 180 grain X-Bullets but no Barnes maunal. Any favorite loads for this bullet in a 20" barreled BLR?
My favorite whitetail load is:
Hornady .358" 200 grain spire point
49.0 grains IMR3031
Once fired WW cases
Win WLR primer
Moderate crimp in cannelure
From a BLR with 20" barrel: 2617 fps / 3042 fpe
This is a max compressed load so start at 44 grains and work up in 1 grain increments.
