Does anyone have any factory 240 Wby 80 gr ttsx ammo, and could measure the COAL for me?? The barnes website use 3.100", but I'm curious on what the factory ammo is?

Well, after ladder testing 5 different powders with 75 bullets at 3.075" and 75 bullets at 3.100" the best 5 shot group the gf's 240 will produce is 2 ".  Undecided if I will buy more 80 gr ttsx's and try some thing else or just say f**k it. This rifle just doesn't seem to like these bullets.

I too couldn't get the 80 TSX to shoot accurately in my Ultralight .240.
