Barnes TSX "Hunter Grade"

So I go to Cabela's to guy some bullets. Ths is my first attempt at reloading for my 300 RUM. My intention was to get the 165 gr TSX, however, they had 168 GR TSX that had a little yellow sticker that said"hunter grade". So I bought those. They were also 5 bucks cheaper. I asked the guy at the counter what the difference was. He didnt know. Anyone know what the difference is?

Re: Barnes TSX "Hunter Grade"

from the FAQs on Barnes web page:

Is the 168-grain .30-caliber TSX the same as the 165-grain TSX? Is it really a match-grade hunting bullet?
These bullets have different ogive geometries. The 165-grain TSX incorporates a shorter tangent ogive in the nose profile. Itís designed for cartridges with short magazines such as the .300 WSM and .300 Win Mag. The 168-grain TSX BT has a tangent ogive which lengthens the nose profile and has shown superb accuracy downrange. It offers the best of both worlds because itís also a premium hunting bullet offering exceptional terminal performance. It is best suited for cartridges such as the .308 Winchester, .30-06 and .300 Weatherby.
