Re: Favorite big game bullet -Poll
Ive been shooting Barnes bullets for as long as Ive owned my rifle (300winny). I first started shooting 130gr barnes-x when I was younger and only deer hunted...it seemed to be more than adequate for the hunting I was doing. Later, i started to elk hunt and wanted something that I could load for both animals. I loved the performance of the barnes so i was partial to their bullets. I chose to load the 150gr TSX and have had ZERO problems with them yet...as previously mentioned from another member "i have yet to have one walk away from a one-shot-kill"....from any yardage.
(80gr imr4831, WLRM primer, 020" from lands, Vel: 3450fps, average deviation 22fps), Ruger tang safety M77, glass bedded, custom radial port brake, 2.5lb trigger pull, Burris Signature Select 3-12x44, .375" groups @100yds ALL DAY LONG with this load.
Granted different bullets shoot well out of different guns, just saying Ive always had very good luck with Barnes
