    Barnes tsx bt 6mm-.243 85gr load request please.

    Anyone got a load for these with n140 or h4895 with CCI 200 primer.
    Also where do I find out about seating depths, driving bands, it is my understanding that this is crucial for good accuracy.
    Looking for a starting point to begin my load development.
    Cheers
    Nick

    I've not used them in the .243 but in the .275 they are a very long bullet and the seating depth that give optimum accuracy may not fit in the magazine. JC

    Nick, i have the relevant gauges and comparators to accurately measure that bullets fit in your rifle, if you want to do that? Gary

    Thanks Garry. I also have the gauges and the rounds will fit in the mag, sounds like 0.03 to 0.07 off the lands is the key. Just need to work out the powder.

    38 gns of h4895 will probably do it - but remember start low and work up (hows that for a safety moment!)

    does anybody know the exact length of this bullet? And how does it perform in a 1:10 barrel - does it stablise?
