Barnes TTSX vs Nosler E-Tip

I'm interested in hearing if anyone has any side by side data for these two bullets (of same weight & same caliber).

The nosler advertises a higher bc and doesn't have the rings around the body, but other than that, how different are they in terms of performance.
Is the nosler just as "tough" as the barnes?
How do they both perform at extreme velocities (3400fps + impacts)?
How about minimum effective velocity on deer sized game?

Re: Barnes TTSX vs Nosler E-Tip

I tried the etips for the advertised bc. By comparison they are not as accurate and will not shoot as fast because the nosler builds pressure to quickly. The barnes has better on game performance. There is no comparison between these out of the rifles I tested them in. The Barnes is way better.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
