I kinda thought that is what you meant by jacket, but wasn't sure.

I agree with you on the Nosler vs. Barnes issue. I doubt I will even try the E-Tip as I have had great luck with the TSX in my AR10. I just wish they would make a little bigger bullet in .308, maybe in the 220-225 gr range for my 30-378.

I talked to Barnes about this and they said the solid copper bullets would be too long in the heavier weights. They are developing the MRX for the heavier bullets and they cost a lot $$$.

I am going with the 180 E-Tips for their better BC and probably going to check out the AB's also.

I shot a couple of 150 gr E-Tips into the water jugs at 300 yds and recovered both of them. The first one was a low hit, went through the first jug, entered the second jug and then into the plywood. The bullet traveled 12.5" in the plywood before coming to rest. Expansion is .512", weight is 148.5 grs

The second bullet went through 6 jugs, sticking out the back. Expanded to .511" and weighed 148.4 grs.

This is an excellent bullet for my 280 AI.
