    I shoot W296 in my Scout with Barnes XPB 140's and Hornady XTP 180's. My hunting load this year is 23.5 gr W296 with Barnes XPB 140's. With the Hornady XTP 180's is 22 grs of W296. All lit by Rem 7 1/2 primers in Rem Max brass.

    Yes I also shoot speers 180gr hotcor and remningtons 180jhp. The Remington pistol bullet performs wonderfully in both rifle and pistol setups. I have shot deer and porcupine with this bullet and expansion has been devastating

    I also shoot the 140ftx in the pistol

    I gonna try 140 to 200 gr bullets in the rifle. I shot 180 XTP in the pistol in the beginning. I mainly shoot Barnes 140 XPB in the pistol now. I may try the Barnes 125 TAC-XP in the pistol when working on loads for the rifle.

    200 TTSX's are going to run out of steam pretty quick in the Max and the 180's won't be too far behind with a minimum opening velocity @ 1800 fps. And considering 1800 fps will get you some expansion, I would not really want impact velocity to be much below 2000 fps. TTSX's will just limit your range with their expansion threshold.

    I would shoot Fury bullets out of a Max if I had one.
