They are the Barnes TSX and flat point solids loaded up by Superior Ammo. I don't know what the recipe used was. Once I shoot through a couple boxes, I'll have enough brass to start experimenting.

Yeah, I see. I had some factory loads for mine once, used the same bullets, loaded by CorBon. Both shot well but the flat nose solid had a tendency to hang up in the chamber which annoyed me no end. If I seated them out further they worked fine. I have a couple of boxes of Swift AFrames I still havent tried out yet. The TSX shoots so well with IMR 4064 I just call that my load.

You might want to give the solids from either North Fork or Cutting Edge Bullets a go. They're flat nosed too, but the design of the meplat is supposed to prevent feeding issues. I know the CEB's feed like butter in my .458B&M.

Fortunately this rifle was build around this load, so it loads smooth as can be. The man who built it seemed concerned about the flat nosed bullets at first, but found that they load fine. I won't take it afield with them until I've shot it enough to be sure.
