Re: Barnes TSX bullets...


My longest kill with the TSX is a one shot kill on an Antelope at 777 yards.

You did not recuperate the bullet, right? How was the exit hole?

Re: Barnes TSX bullets...

The wound channel and the exit hole looked ( as best I could tell) to be identical to the one that I killed at 280 yards.Ian M. Has used the TSX on deer out to 700 yards ot of a 308 win. The TSX seem to be light years ahead of the old X's in both accuracy and terminal perforamnce.They have been as accurate in my rfle as any bullet includinr the 190 grain SMK
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

TSX= Phenomenal bullet! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

I can testify what a 140 TSX can do!

I reloaded for a buddy of mine last year. It was so close to hunting season and he had just bought a new Sako 75 in 7 RUM. All we came up with is a load with RL25 launcing the 140 TSX at a sedate 3300 fps. We took it elk hunting and on the second day he took a shot at a running cow elk in the timber. 125 yrds and she folded like a cheap suit. When we got up to her......suprise there was another cow elk behind the dead one!!! This one had a broken hip. She got up hobbled around trying to run away and another guy in our group finished her. So the "little" 140 tsx at mv of 3300 fps went through 2 cow elk (shoulder shot in/out on the first btw) and was never found! Later that season he had a second elk tag and he dropped a calf at 446 yards. Again no TSX found and even at that range internal damage was phenomenal!!!!! This year he wants me to up the load a bit since we have plenty of time.

My 375 H&H loves the Barnes 235 TSX. Shoots ~ 2900 and .6" at 100. Haven't shot game with it yet but have with my 308 Win and 300 WM. 168 TSX's none recovered and no game lost.

I shot 225 triples in a Weatherby 338/378 with awesome accuracy. You will not usually find these bullets left behind in the animal. I also use them in my 6mm and 300RUM.

Re: Barnes TSX bullets...

I have shot several deer, hogs and two coyotes with Barnes bullets. I have not shot anything with TSXs yet because I am still shooting the old school Barnes X. I shoot them in a 25-06, 270 and 300 RSAUM. I'll try to get some pics posted of my last kill with a 140 gr Barnes X out of my 300 RSAUM at 3211 fps.

From top, entrance wound, exit wound, .257 Barnes X 75 gr impact velocity of 3400+fps, second view of .257 Barnes X. The 75 gr bullet weights 74.6 grs now. Just fyi.
