Never loaded for this gun (X Bolt) until today. 3 shots at 100 yards from a rest.

Maybe a little tweaking could tighten it up a little.

Do you know how much an empty deprimed piece of your brass weighs?

I think I will.

I have some Barnes 130 grain TTSX’s that should be here in a few days and I’ll experiment with those.

I have no idea on the velocity. Shot through a Browning X Bolt with 22” barrel.

I shoot H4895 with Lapua brass and the 150 NBT/NAB for high 2800s in a 22” factory bolt gun. Can’t recall the exact charge, but it is at the top end of H’s online data. It was about what their data predicted for velocity. I bought that jug of powder when I couldn’t find Varget and it’s been good in 308 and 7-08 with lighter bullets.


Now with even more aplomb

45.5, and that's in heavier Lapua brass (probably about 173 grains) with longer bullets as well.

With the flat base Hornady, lighter brass and a grain less powder I'll guesstimate 2750, maybe 2800.

I shoot a heavy charge of 4064 in mine behind a 150 grain Sierra in LC match brass and CCI primers. I'm seeing 2800 and a little change with a 20 inch barrel.

I agree on you guy’s velocity estimates. Likely high 2,700 range. My notes show 45.3gr, Lap brass, and 150NAB for 2,875fps.

Might need a 1/4" up and 1/2" tweak to the left.

Lobster, look up the posts on here “130 TTSX loads for a 308” just posted yesterday if you trying the Barnes bullet. Mighty good shooting there. I have used that Hornady bullet for years and now use the Barnes 130 for deer…you won’t be disappointed, they like them fast I have found hard to catch one in a deer.

This with 150 GameKings or Partitions. They do well in a hog hunter and a 99

I think that’s my post that you’re referring to. I got the 130 grain TTSX’s to shoot a ragged hole at 100 yards.
