Here is what I was able to do with the Barnes 130 grain TSX's today. After a four shot walk in, I shot this group and called it good enough for now. I shot this 5 shot smiley face to show my happiness. !00 yard group in 88 degree temps and a slight wind. Called it good as it was getting hotter quickly. Yeah...it's a boar killer!!!! I wish I could post the video of the 10 pound watermelon that became fruit salad!!!
Fruit Salad.................10 pound watermelon explosion....
Function was flawless and accuracy was what I was hoping for with the limited time that I have for load development. Thanks again Greg, Glenn, and especially Rich for his hours on the phone!! Total team effort getting this going.
Saturday's fire form loads with 29 grains of H335 and Hornady 130 grain soft points....They're tightening up!! Funny thing is, I had NO point of Impact change with this load and my 130 grain Barnes TSX with 28 grains of RL7. The last five were dead on after the wind calmed a little.
That looks good. I have a bag of 64 of those Hornady 130 gr. soft points I picked up at my local reloading shop. Also got a bag of 40 130 gr. soft point boat tail that I have no idea whom the manufacturer is. I got both on the cheap so I could use them when forming up new brass. Monday I got in an order for 400 Sierra 125 gr. Pro-Hunters. Going to load up the Sierra and the Lapua bullets and push them good with RL-7 powder. Should be able to get the Lapua's in the 2600's with the 18" barrel. We will see. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Thanks for posting.
