Rifle's info: Mosin-Nagant 43' Tula PU sniper, slugged at .313; shoots 1 1/4 " 100 yards 174 SMK/52.5gr AA4350/44.6 Varget.
Did anyone used the "Barnes Triple-Shock X Bullets 303 Caliber (311 Diameter) 150 Grain Hollow Point Flat Base Lead-Free" in their Mosin, in hunting, or not, situation? If yes, if you don't mind sharing, what was your load and how did they do on game?
Their are expensive but, as it is for hunting, once done with load development, wouldn't be shooting too many of them. For target shooting, the 174 SMK 311 works just fine. Yes, it would take down deer too, just trying to do the right thing.
For now, I loaded some Sierra Game King Spitzer 180 gr (311 diameter) 303 caliber with a few loads of AA4350 and IMR 4064, will check them out soon; heard good things about the 180 Spitzer but curious about the Barnes.
