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!
