reloading data for Barnes

PostBy: nuthcuntrynut On: Wed Sep 18, 2013 10:40 pm

Anyone else use Barnes on here. i use Barnes tsx and ttsx in 270, 308, 22-250, & 257Roberts a few others as well, but won't list everything .
if you have afavorite recipe I'd love to try it, and share mine as well. one thing I've learned with Barnes- if your normal round was , say, 150 grains, drop down to 130 for same performance. that had worked out well in everything listed.
I'm just getting my ideas together now for the bench, since going to coal from wood looks like I'll have more time for me stuff. :) and i don't mind that

Thats pretty much top of the line stuff, I use Nolser or V max, I only know 22 cal, but I get good results, this photo, five rounds at 110 yards.. good luck with the new bench, it's always fun..

ETA this was 22-250...

They are a bit pricey, i agree,I use them for deer hunting as the bullets get extremely good results, the weird part is you have to drop down a weight to get the same ballistics of a leaded bullet. I have been testing a bonded bullet from hornady with awesome results, true test will be autopsy results on a deer, I really like that in my 270 I can keep the 130 gr bullet, but the barnes 110 is a wicked game bullet as it has like velocity and recoil is less.
I dont use my 22-250 for deer, but i have loaded some 45 gr barnes i keep just in case a nice buck steps in my way while coyote blasting. The round shoots like a lazer i am sure you agree, Ive been playing with sierra 50 gr blitzkings, they are a bit pricey as well but its the only thing i can get my hands on as 224 caliber projectiles are near nonexistent.
Happy shooting

PS http://www.midwayusa.com have great prices on bonded bullets from hornady, they are blems, however near half price from normal pricing on a ballistic tipped hornady, and of course theyre bonded core
