I want to work up a load for my Winchester 94 with Barnes TSX 150gr bullets. I have several different powders. The rifle is old, 1926, and I don't want to damage it. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I will be the first to say that Barnes really needs to do a better job of putting load data out there. Here's the data on their site:

<broken link removed>

They do have this load listed:

Minimum Maximum
Charge Velocity Charge Velocity Load
Powder (grains) (fps) (grains) (fps) Density (%)
Win 748 31.5 2039 34.0 2168 96
&#9830;TAC 30.5 2006 32.0 2096 90

I tend to agree that TAC would be a good choice, and at 30.5gr you're not pushing it that hard. However barring that, the bigger question here is what powders do you have?

I checked out the Barnes site, but the only two loads they show for 150gr I don't have those powders. Do you think I should try to use the lower end of the 130 gr load?
