Have you heard any feedback or developed any great loads for the 130 TTSX for a Remington LTR 308?

I have Lapua brass, CCI BR primers and Varget on hand

the LTR with a Jewell trigger shoots one ragged hole, 5 shots I can cover with a dime with the 165g Sierra 165g BSTP and 44.5g of Varget with a COAL of 2.80

I would love to try the 130s in it if I could get it to shoot as well.

according to the twist chart i have from dan lilja, you need a 1:14  your 1:12 is setup for 140-180gr stuff, your saving grace if you have one will be the fact that the barnes bullets are pretty long for their weight.

In my sakos(75finnlight and 85stainless lam.), ttsx 130gr groups almost better than match bullets(under 1/3 inch/110yards). I use vihtauori N140 and cci br2 primers.

I run 130 ttsx's in front of 49gr Varget, Lapua Brass & Fed 210. Produces 3050fps from my 19' barrel and flat out works.
