    After seeing the CBB bullets, I've decided to give them a shot, in preference to Barnes Blacktips in my 16" blk.
    Should I follow load workup the same as the 125 Barnes, or does anyone have a 'pet' recipe?
    My powder preference would be H110/296 if it's any help.

    Welp....after a week of fiddling around, I've settled on a charge of 18.5gn of W296, COAL of 2.160"
    I'm getting an average 2140fps, not the hottest load under the sun, but giving .75moa 5 shot, 100yd groups, I'll take accuracy over velocity every time.
    They're shooting 3" lower than the TAC Tx over 19.5gn, but dead center vertically.

    Fingers crossed I'll get to slot a couple through meat this weekend & give an actual performance review!
