300 wssm/ossm 150 Barnes TS Load Suggestion

Postby miked » Thu Dec 15, 2011 1:15 am

I am looking for a load for the 150 grain Barnes Triple Shock Bullet. Would like to get at least 2850 FPS out of this load, if possible. Suggestions for powders and anticipated powder weights to acheive this velocity are appreciated. Regards.

Start with 44.6gr of Alliant AR-Comp and work up from there. I've found it doesn't need an overly hot primer and it had great promise before I got out of this caliber. If you have an adequate supply of those expensive buggers for load workup, load 3-shot tests in .3gr steps. Shoot the different charges in round robin to find the OCW, then zoom in on the most consistent two groups and play with the COL.

I gave up on the 150gr barnes even with a UMAR 2.40oal i decided that the 130 gr was all that will fit.
