Use Magnum primers?

On another forum, someone suggested to use magnum primers for 300 BO. Anyone try this with good results? Increase in fps? Or is this a bad idea? Thanks.

Re: Barnes 110 TAC-TX ?

Was not aware of that. Thanks for the info. Just checked my target. No fragments on the target but for now will load my best grouping.

Re: Barnes 110 TAC-TX ?

Have no issues cycling with H110 and full loads. The upper came with some subs but wouldn't cycle for crap. After I get a good feel with this rifle, think I will try 8208XBR and see what happens. Its a faster burning powder than varget or 4064. I use 8208 with my short barrel 308. Bites pretty good ...

Burris RT6

Just saw one of these on AR15.com today. Looks pretty good for around $350. Anyone have this? Am looking for a good optic for my newly put together 300 BO.

Update, I just ordered one. Everyone wants $349 but Whittaker guns sells it for $330 shipped.

Re: Barnes 110 TAC-TX ?

Got out to range today. Loaded up 110 V-Max and 110 Barnes TAC-TX. Did not shoot the barnes. Didn't have a scope yet so put on iron sites for now. Won't do that again. My old eyes are used to scopes. Here is what I got out of the V-Max with 5 shots per: 19.6 gr 2346 fps (AVG) H110 19.8 2338 fps 20.0...

Re: Barnes 110 TAC-TX ?

Thanks. Read the hunting area for a bit. allot of different bullets used. Some of the commercial offerings are pretty good too. Will shoot my 110's I just loaded up and maybe load some 125's too after while and see how they do. Once I get the chrono data, can decide then. Don't mind paper punching b...

Re: Barnes 110 TAC-TX ?

Thanks. All my rifles I reload for I try to go a bit higher to see if I can. Pistol powder is harder to do it with but rifle powder I can usually get 1 to 1 1/2 grains above max published loads. Has anyone tried the Z-Max bullets? These you can buy in bulk to save a bit compared to the v-max bullets.

Re: 100gr Hornady Short Jackets

Was looking at this bullet to get a little most distance. But as mentioned above, pushing to hard may make them come apart. To bad they don't make a SST version.

Re: Barnes 110 TAC-TX ?

You folks loading the 110 v-max, what c.o.l. Are you doing? My 1st time loading small bullets like these. Book shows 2.050. Am doing 2.100. Did a batch last night and topped out at 20.04 gr of H110 which is 0.02 over max (Hornady book).
