Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: Barnes Bullet eXpansion

Never recoverd one , I have shot untipped version , shot white tail this year 150 yards , bang flop. I shoot for shoulder , have shot accubonds , ballistic tip ,and Barnes seem to be very accurate in the last 4 years shooting game I have not lost any animals . I have shoot 350 lbs pigs at 380 yards and shoulder shot them still complete pass thru . But it is a 300 ultra

Re: Barnes Bullet eXpansion

impact velocity on the 168 would of been 2500 fps. I never actively search out the bullet but like in the case the 168 it was just under the hide on opposite side of entry. I did weigh that one out of curiosity and it weighed in at 167. I did not weigh it beforehand but it pretty much retained it's weight.
