Would be interested in your comments.

I have shot the 180 TSX bullet in my 300 RUM and Win mag out to 1100 meters and they are very accurate. The longest distance that I have taken game with them has been 777 yards which was a 1 shot DRT kill using my 300 Win mag
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Re: Barnes triple shock

Last year on the antelope hunt I shot one at a little over 400yds with a 257 Weatherby 80gr TTSX. Hit high shoulder, dropped in tracks.
My son shot one at 550yds with his varmint/antelope/deer/elk/moose gun, a 30/378 Weatherby 180gr TTSX. Lung shot dropped in tracks, (yes, 180gr is enough for antelope).
Accuracy at longer ranges seems to be no better or worse than most other bullets.
Bullet performance in 25 cal, 7MM, and 30 cal. on mainly deer out to 450 has been flawless.
