Among these are the old Barnes 'x' bullets in 100 and 120 grain. I got reload data from Barnes and am wondering if it's worth my time to work up a loax. I have about a hundred of each weight. Any one have load data on these or experience with them? I heard that their pressures really push the limits and I am not sure I want to mess with them When I could do better with modern sierra or noslers. Any info would be great.
Get ahold of Barnes and Josh will send you loads for those bullets. Make certain that you advise him of the type bullets, perhaps there is a prod # on the boxes..
