I received my Black Hills Gold 140g 7mm rem mag ammo today loaded with Barnes TSX bullets. I was told the ridges on the bullet would be visible when seated, mine are not. So are you supposed to be able to see them?

Usually but not always.  The recommended loading of TSX and its varients are .050 or more inches below SAMMI OAL spec.'s.  In handloading the bullets, Barnes suggests they be .050 or more off the lands.

Well my whole box of 20 is exactly the same. I won't have pressure problems will I?

You should not have any problems with pressure.  They are factory rounds correct?

Go shoot a few.  See if they are accurate enough for you in your rifle.

Good luck.

Yeah, they are Black Hills Gold ammo. I will shoot them next week and see how they are.
