Re: Ballistic tip fails

my point was that this is not a bullet failure, but this was an application failure. this is the correct application with this combo (300RUM 150gr bt)

    I am sorry if I offended any one with the graphic detail.

    Re: Ballistic tip fails

    i had loaded the 150 to play with at the range but i thought they would work ok on a deer. i use 200 gr speers most of the time but had ran out. i see what you all are talking about to much speed. the 150 or older to i did not know they had been reworked time for some new bullets. i would like to try so barns 200/220 has any one had good luck with them? heres the pic if i did this right thanks for the help. http://www.hunt101.com/img/357310.jpg

    Jeff, that is a beautiful buck. Congratulations. In terms of using the Barnes, that can get tricky. I use the TSX quite a bit and to date it has performed flawlessly for me and my brother. However, Barnes has a new bullet, the MRX, which has a tungsten core and plastic tip. Essentially it is a pseudo-combo of a Failsafe/TSX/Ballistic tip. If you have not seen it, take a look.

    It will be an expensive bullet and I myself am curious about it's accuracy potential. I personally think it is a good design in the event bone is hit.

    Bob , Unc B ,

    What, hunting season over ? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Ya'll have way tooo much time on your hands. Can't you at least go shoot some vermin [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Ok , Bob you are to go and cut some new shooting lanes for your 5,6,7,800 yd shot at your favorite high hides . Unc B. , you are needing to go put out some markers at the 2500 yd . range so it will be a piece of cake to [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] whack the next hog at that distance .

    Me ? well, I just got back from scoping out the mountainside that the whitetails have been moving across going from bed to feed . My 700 yd shot is still possible this year cuz the 3 days after Christmas is modern gun here in Arkansas [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Merry , happy , joyful celebration of the birth of the Saviour ,
