Finally ran out of my old 80gr TSX and decided to switch to the TTSX.
What load do you guys like with all of the newer powders available?

Thanks

I've long gone '15 for 75's(both V-max and X's),'19 for 80/5/7's and '22 for 100's and greater.



80TTSX fueled with '19 make 3600fps on the nose,in a 22" 25-284...though I wish it were a 6BR twisted 7". Shot one of 'em to near destruction(Pinky),Sister's I know better than to touch/change and THE Urban is too fucking Famous to yard apart.

It's rough..................(grin)

That's what I needed to know.
You find yourself liking the 6BR better than 25-284 now?

Bullets matter more than headstamps.

I like 270,6 Grendel,BR,Kreedmire,243,243AI,6-284 and Twat-Six MUCH more...than anything .257",mainly because I shoot it all..............

I use the 80 in my 30" 25-06. 4000' fps @7200' ft with Super Performance, kills medium game like a death ray.

None of my (5) 257 Wby's would do that,but none of the barrels were longer than 27.5" either.

Never had a 25-06AI over 26" either.

Hint.................

As an aside,a "lowly" 22-250AI smokes the 30" 25-06 in wind drift.

Prolly using less powder too.

Easy for me to say,I shoot it all.............(grin)
