    See which shoots best out of your rifle.

    Details, details. "IN" -- "SM"
    They are all the same diameter, aren't they? :)

    Same Bullet.
    Powder and brass were different.

    I'll post a picture later this year of one taken with an "IN".

    The Barnes TSX and TTSX bullets like speed in my experience.
    Try both the 150 grain TSX and the 130 grain TTSX and choose the bullet that shoots the best in your gun.

    If they are equal, then personally I would use the 130 TTSX bullet in a 270 win.
