Oldbrass ... I ment to type TSX and not TBX. Barnes load data is real close to what Sierra has for their 150 gr bullet, although a little heavier. The Barnes stuff is solid copper arnt they ?? Sierras Min load of 3031 is lower than Barnes and Max is a little less. You are right about cost ... :eek: I wouldnt buy any either. Free is the way to go .... LOL

Yep the Barnes is solid copper..some states don`t allow lead projectiles which one day will probley be the norm once the tree-huggers catch on..
