    Any of you guys try out these Triple Shocks. It sure shows if you have any weak case shoulders - course the brass was getting a little used on one lot. I'm heading over to the range tomorrow with a bunch of those and Nosslers for my .280s. I picked up those in 140 grn and had a 1/2 box of 120 grn Barns Xs. They are saying you can use 1-2 grains more of powder because of less surface friction in the barrel. I'm useing both H4350 and H4831SC to see which runs better.....

    Let us know how it goes, BlueTic! I have a .270 in which I like the Speer Grand Slam 150 gr bullet and H4831SC powder!

    Well - Finaly got out of the house - after all the "Honey Doooos".
    The Triple Shocks beat out the Noslers at the 200m range.
    2 1/2" - 5 shot group was my best with the Barns, and 4" and above with the Noslers... My Ruger # 1 beat out my Remington 700, but I have a 6-18x scope on the Ruger and a 3-9x on the Remington... Took along my Contender to shoot when the barrels were cooling - it is just fun to shoot in .223.
    I think I'll keep the loads the same for the Ruger and play around with powder amounts on the Remington.....
