Anyone have the Barnes load manual? I need the load data fir the 70 Grn TSX with Varget and TAC. I don't have any data in that bullet in any if my load manuals.

Barnes 70 tsx TAC

That is straight from Barnes. You could always email or call them for the Varget data, I'm sure they would give that to you.

Use 69gr data and work up as normal. Your velocities should almost mirror it. Watch for velocity flat spots near the top end, hard to lift bolt or hard to extract brass, and flattened primers. Your jacketed bullet may need additional power to push it because of the possibly higher forces of friction between the barrel and the jacket

If you don't know be safe and use the .223 Rem data
