    S.A.A.M.I spec for COL is 3.630 min - 3.750 max

    Barnes latest manual, (#4) page #375 says 400TSX most accurate powder is:

    RL-22 95.0 2267fps -103.0 2462


    Other powders are:

    IMR-4350 85.0 - 92.5
    VIT N560 97.0 - 104.0
    IMR-4831 87.5 - 95.5
    H-4831sc 89.0- 97.0
    RL-22
    IMR-7828sc 94.0 - 102.0

    Their COL is listed at 3.635 with a recommendation to crimp into the front groove.

    I have not loaded for this cartridge but other Barnes data that I have used is off quite a bit on published velocity. I have never been able to achieve their velocities with their charges and often have over pressure signs prior to their max load.

    I hope this helps, let us know about your results.

    Cheers,

    Thank You Marshall,
