I was thinking on trying some federal premium
130 grain Barns tipped triple shock bullets in my 300win mag TC PRO HUNTER,deer & hog hunting this year. Has any one used this? If so good or bad idea?

Hey BushMan .... welcome to the forum's.... make yourself at home, and get to know everyone. Theres a real nice group of folks ( almost a family ) here.

As far as your question goes, I don't shoot that round, so I can't give you any advice, BUT I can say that you might come closer to getting an accurate response by posting your question in the guns / firearms / ammo. section of the forum. It is just a little further down on the main menu screen.

Good luck .... and again , welcome.

Welcome to the site. Jump right on in and join the crowd.

I brought this thread over the the guns forum for you.

Although I have never shot the Barnes TSX bullet, they are supposed to penetrate deep and hold together real well. I wouldn't see any problem at all using this bullet, probably except for the cost.

Looking at Federal's web site, I don't see the 130 grain bullet listed, just the 165 and 180 grain.

From my limited knowledge, I would guess that a 130gr. TSX out of a .300 win mag, shouldn't suffer significant downrange droppage until ..... ummmmm , say maybe the next day :eek::smack:.........

I still want another gun , not that I have any right now :biggrin:.... in the 7mm wsm.... or, I may just go for the srtaight 7 mm mag...

That used to be my dream gun..... 7mm mag in a Browning A-Bolt whitegold medallion... with a 5-20 x 44 Nikon Monarch.

But I'm sure it would have more bullet drop than BushMans 130 gr. .300 mag... :up:

My passion is bow hunting for the last 10 years. but i decided to try gun hunting again always had a 30-30. This is the first big rifle i"ve bought so this is new to me. I seen 2 real nice bucks last year at about 250-300 yrds. I forgot to put my 300yrd pin on my DRENALIN. Let them come out this year and i"ll introduce them to Mr. 300 mag

Bush, I shoot a 300 Win Mag and for deer I have used the 165 grain Hornady Spire point loaded with 59.3 gr of IMR 4064. This proved to be a very accurate load for my rifle and a good round to practice with. This load worked good for me but as always when reloading you need to start with a minimum load and work up to find what works best in your rifle. I never hog hunted but I'm sure this would work well.
