Barnes triple shock

I'm tempted to try some 130 gr triple shocks in my sons .308.I had a bugger of a time but worked up a for a .243 this year using 85gr triple shocks.I started at .50 off the lands and moved that around some.I used several different powders but couldn't do better than 3".I was ready to give up until I worked up a max load with super performance and then it all came together.I ended up killing a couple doe with this load and was very impressed with the terminal performance.I've been loading 125 accubonds in my sons .243 and he's been doing very well with it.I like to tinker though and feel like trying 130gr barnes bullets.Has anyone used the 130 gr and is there a difference between the tipped bullets and regular triple shocks?

Re: Barnes triple shock

My best friend uses the 130 grain TSX with a load of RL15 in his Montana. I know that they shoot good and kill deer just fine. I'm also pretty sure that he uses a light crimp on them. I will ask what primer and brass he is using. I think the tipped TSX would give you a slightly better BC and probably help with expansion. I have had good results with the TSX in .257 and .224 but never got around to trying them in my 30 cal rifles.

I have had no problems with 130gr .277 diameter TSX's opening up in whitetails.

Our forefathers didn't bury their guns. They buried those that tried to take them.
