I've never had good luck with the 200gr X bullets in my .300 because they are so long and the rear of the bullet doesn't expand and conform to the rifling well.  For that matter, I never could get the standard X bullet to shoot well at all in my rifles.  The Triple Shock solves the X's problems with its o.d. grooves.  I've been able to get it to shoot quite well in my .300 and 7mag, but I haven't used bullets heavier than 180gr in my .300 and see no reason to with a premium bullet. 

 

4831 is a good powder for the .300, so it's definitely a logical choice to start you load testing with.

if you really want to shoot those see if there is any data for them in the 2nd edition lee manual i know they have a little segment just for the x bullets in many calibers. i agree with ted if your using a premium bullet no need to go for more than 180 in north america.

I hunt on the S Ga coast with smaller deer.I load 130g triple shock in a300 wsm with H414 & H380.They shoot good in my savage tatical,but they do not leave as big of exit as I like.I have not had a deer move over 10 feet though.

Thanks Guys,

I got the 200grainers for free so i can't just let them lay around.i was thinking a nice phone book at 300yrds would be a nice target for them.

 

For all my hunting needs i have 4loads already up and running. all 180gr Nosler BT, Hornaday SST and some swift siroccos(sp) serria gamekings so i was just wanting to play around with them.I also hunt Ga,Nc,Sc, Ala and Mich.

I would like to shoot 150 gr bullets but i can't get them to shoot right always bad groups with them the heaver dose alot better.

 

 

Big.

I have never experienced good accuracy with any Barnes bullet, although I know some folks who have.  Since I hunt nothing larger than whitetails, I don't use them.  For perspective read this: http://www.dnr.sc.gov/wildlife/deer/articlegad.html

for the 300 i have found that shooting anything less than 165 doesnt work and shooting anything more than 180-195 doesnt work to well either. but on the other hand in 30-06 i havent had anything but good luck with the 150 and the 180 and 165's wouldnt shoot.

My experience with TSX is that they shoot better when loaded hot.  I don't have any experince with the 200 gr.  I'm shooting 150 TSX in my 300 wm with very good accuracy
