Re: Barnes X Performance on Big Game?

Sewwhat, If you have Barnes X shooting that good, then use them. I wish I got them to shoot. I've shot a few head of game with Barnes X and they all dropped in their tracks. Blood trail was never a concern. Unfortunately, a lot of folks can't get them to shoot. Me included.

Varmint, If it the place I'm thinking of then their is a guide named Paul who is a real good guide. I though it was Wyoming Professional Outfitters, but I could be mistaken.
P-doggin out here is a hoot!

Birdman,

Randy & Sharon Brown are the outfitters.

Sewhat89,

As to never getting an exit wound with the Ballistic Tips @ 3,400 ft/sec; drop that velocity below 3,000 and you will have completely different results on game animals. I've had many pass-throughs when shooting 140gr B-Tips from a 7mm-08 and results similar to yours when shooting the same bullet from my 7STW and hitting whitetails that rolled in (unexpectedly) at 100yds.

I've killed 3 or 4 deer with the Barnes X and now the Triple shock. I've killed 2 cow elk as well from ranges of 69yds to 412yds. Everything dropped right now [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Varmint, ask them if one of the guides is names Paul.

Thanks

Birdman,

Varmint, you'll have a great hunt. No shortage of Pronghorn or p-dogs here.
