Thread: Nosler Partition or Barnes??😳

    Nosler Partition or Barnes??😳

    Hi all,

    New to reloading. Looking for your thoughts.

    I have been using Hornady SST 130 ballistic tip 130gr in my .270 and would prefer something else.

    Was hoping for something close to RWS Hmantel. Was thinking either Nosler Partition or Barnes, any info much appreciated.

    (Mainly for red deer)

    thanks in advance.

    I've found the 110gr Barnes TSX quite accurate in my Tikka T3.

    I'm loading them to 3.240" COAL
    61.0gr Ramshot Hunter
    Federal 215 Magnum primer
    I estimate about 3300fps (haven't chronied them but 63.0gr was giving around 3460fps - too hot for my rifle).

    Haven't tried them for hunting yet but by all accounts they are good.

    I ordered mine from arms24.com

    I can spare some if you'd like to try them.
