Re: Barnes 110gr vs 120gr Vor-TX

I've had excellent luck with the 110 gr on hogs, but paper accuracy leaves a lot to be desired vs other less effective rounds in my experience. With that said, gentlemen, you're slicing it pretty fine - I've had good luck with *every* solid copper Barnes on hogs, including with the lowly 357 and 44 ...

Re: Barrel Suggestion?

I've seen MOA or better out of three AAC uppers, one 9" 1:8. Friend took that off my hands and since then two 12.5" AAC uppers have produced very good results. When everything works properly and you have a good lock up on a SDN-6 I've seen 4" groups out of Barnes black tip with an Aimpoint 3X ar 200...

Re: General purpose 300 BLK bolt gun... 1-4x24 Razor HD or Leupold VX-R 2-7x33?

I'm curious to see how the Razor 24mm looks vs the 40mm of the VX-R at dusk. Just started turning over the possibility of the 2-7 yesterday - between the superbowl and work I've yet to catch a sunset. I"m assuming the 33mm will be at least in the ballpark of the performance of the 40mm. If the 1-4 h...

General purpose 300 BLK bolt gun... 1-4x24 Razor HD or Leupold VX-R 2-7x33?

So I'm waiting for a stamp for my Model 7. I'm going to put a Krieger stainless barrel on it that will be flush with the end of the stock and a 30-P1 attached to that. 12.5"-ish inch barrel. I'm expecting it to be a handy little sucker for deer out to 150-ish and pigs as far away as I can hit those ...

Re: New to loading for the 300 - best powder for 12.5" bbl 110 gr Black Tip?

Gracias. I figured the 12" bbl wouldn't get me much extra but its flush with the end of the stock so it is what it is there. I've got high hopes accuracy wise, ordered a Krieger stainless bbl with 1:7.5 twist. I figured I'll shoot mainly supers but that should get me a little extra insurance for 220...

New to loading for the 300 - best powder for 12.5" bbl 110 gr Black Tip?

That about says it - I've got a 12.5" bbl, 110 gr barnes black tip, and need to load up some ammo. I have a 550 and need to buy all the loading dies etc, any and all suggestions welcome. I haven't loaded 300 ammo before. Any tips or tricks would be appreciated. How much does bbl length matter past 9...
