Re: 168TSX Barnes For Long Range Shots on Powerlines Here in Ga.

tripple shocks do not leave a huge exit hole. From the deer that I have skinned that have been shot with them, they pretty much expand on impact, creating a huge temp wound cavity and exit with a small hole. It is hard to believe how much internal damage these bullets do! Most of my experience is with a 7 Mag with the 140's at 3200 fps. Some of the petals break off with deer that are under 100 yards but the damage to the deer is unreal.

Last year a friend shot a 120 lb buck with a 30/06 with a 150g TS and the damage was awful at a range of 100 yds. These bulles are devistating to say the least!

the internal damage is great, however if it doesn't drop right there the blood has two small holes to come out plus the nose/mouth. Makes for a harder tracking job than i want. give me a 2-3+ inch exit and the tracking is easy.

Exactly! I want a big blood trail if I have to track. The original X-Bullets would leave a big exit.
