need recipe for 168gr barnes tiple shocks in 308ar


Recommended Posts

They are the only "hunting" bullets I had access to, and have not had time to get to the range, may be able to go fri. evening, does anyone have a load they have used in a 308ar  with these or a very similar bullet? I have Lake City and commercial brass, Federal large rifle or CCI 34's, Varget and H4895, and possibly another powder but I cannot remember right now. Normally load and test but just don't have time to do all that before the weekend, they don't have to be sub-moa rounds, the longest shot I have is just over 100yds,  Thank's.

Be careful loading that bullet - the TSX is longer than another bullet of the same weight.  It's longer than some 175s that are out there.


Hit this for load data, and start on the low side, varying up by 0.2gr.  If you load up 5 each like that, for the next 5 weights, it'll be apparent which one is performing best.
