Ogle buck, to be totally honest, I am sure they are going to shoot just fine. In fact, I'm just going to load a few , and chrono them, and then I'll know what my speed is. I M expecting about what I got with the 140 TTSX, which is 3369 ave. With the BC being
.489, a 225 zero will hit anything out to 400 with a center mass hold.
Or, I can plot it with a ballistics program, and " Dial " it.
Either way, I am very confident with any of the Barnes bullets, and really happy about the potential of the LRX. They also make a 168 grain, but I'm only shooting whitetail. If I where to go on a elk, or big mule deer hunt, I might opt for the heavier pill. That's just my thinking.
