Thread: Barnes ttsx powder choice

  1. #1

    Barnes ttsx powder choice

    Hi thinking of loading 130gr ttsx in 308 and possibly 120gr in 6.5x55.
    Anyone got any pet loads?

    i used 130 .30 cal with varget 50 grain just under 3000 fps but went back 150 pro-hunters much cheaper and i ran out of varget if you go on there site it will give you some info .

    Whatever you use, they seem to like a good jump to the lands. I believe Barnes recommend a minimum of 50'. That's waht I used as a start point and it was bang on!

    Varget & Alliant Reloder 15 both work well with this bullet in my 308.

    I last shot the TSX over a chrony and they were doing 3000fps. 140 grain 2800. I haven't measured the TTSX.

    thanks guys, unfortunately i don't have any of those powders. Varget and 4895 are in short supply down here. i do have
    N160 Small amount
    IMR 4350
    Ramshot Tac and X-terminator

    think the N133 and benchmark are too fast but as to the others has anyone used any of them?
