I have a rcbs prigressive piggyack press. Im planning on ordering what i need to start this week. I have some once fired winchester brass, and i like the look of i believe it was barnes trippleshock bullets. My question now is who makes the best powder and primers for what im looking tto do. And do you think this would be a great load overall or could i improve?

since its a magnum you will want a large rifle magnum primer, some prefer federal some cci, some remington, some winchester. pick one, i prefer federal and cci. as far as powders go, pick a slow burning powder like rl-19 or h4831sc or even imr7828sc

Here are my choices in order:
Primer: #1. Federal 215.#2. CCI magnum.
Powder: #1. RE22. #2. H1000. #3. IMR4831

Barnes are good bullets, but I had little luck getting them to shoot with Noslers' & Hornady's.

Get a couple of good reloading manuals, and pick a few loads to try.
I would suggest only loading about (5) of a particular load until you find a good one.

I haven't found a barnes that worked well in my 300 win mag.  I did find some 180gr XLC's the blue coated ones that i am gonna load for subsonic but if they work it will be the only barnes i give approval to

+1 Corndawg  Excellent

Having a bunch of bullets that don't work well would suck. Make a few, document what you did so you can replicate success, and not repeat mistakes.

It would help if I/we knew what you intend to do such as what game you plan to hunt or are you primarily a paper puncher. I'm not a big fan of Barnes, but many are happy with their results. If deer are on the menu, I don't think anything Barnes makes is necessary for whitetails. I have had great luck with Nosler Ballistic Tips on deer and they tend to be extremely accurate. Unless you are after larger game where deep penetration, thick hides, breaking shoulder bones etc is paramount, I would stay with the Ballaistic Tip, Accubond, Sierra Game King, Hornady SST and Interbond as they provide good accuracy and more than enough performance to take out any whitetail or mule deer for that matter at any reasonable angle that could present itself.

As far as primers are concerned, think Federal 215's and for powder IMR-4831 and H4831 are tops.

The Barnes triple shock are deeper penetrating bullets than I want for mule deer.

I hunt with a 7mmMag with a bullet that dumps it's energy faster.

I aim for the lungs.

 I loaded up some triple shock for my 7mm and just could not get a seating depth without compressing the load, and they were all over the place couldn't get a decent group, went back to Sierra game kings and brought the groups back to sub moa @100.
 Primers CCI magnum, IMR 4895, not the best in some peoples eyes but it works for me 48grs.

  I'm guessing maybe 2600 to 2700fps?  Oughta be good terminal performance for that bullet at that speed.

Federal 215, H4831 and 160 gr Sierra Game King here. I also load 160 gr Trophy Bonded Bear Claws that are unnecessary for deer.

I reload with H4831 65.0 gr. with a nosler 150 gr. silver tip bullet. Works great in my browning 7 MM. Shoots 1/2 in. groups at 100 yds. Great on deer.

  Yea,H4831 is always a GOOD ONE in the 7mm Rem.  I used it with the old 140gr Nosler Solid Base bullet back in the early 80's in a 700 Classic.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing your triple shocks. They can be fine bullets, it's just their makeup makes them tricky.
A lot of copper with little lead so they're really long to get weight, and seating depth comes into play bigtime.

The worst thing about them is if you load a bunch, get ready to clean out the blue moly out of your die.

That sh*t can gum up like hell.

Good shooting dude!
