barnes 168s

my ultra mag likes the 168 barnes ttsx better then about anything. Problem is i cant find them anywhere. I did find and ordered a box of there 168 tatical .30 cal bullet. Anyone here try both and did your gun shoot them differntly. Is there a real differnce in these two bullets.

    The go-to bullet in my 7.82 Patriot is the 168 TTSX & it's treated me well. Which bullet did you go with the Tac-X or the Tac-TX?

    it was the ttx and 96 grains of re25 that gave me 5 shot 3/4 inch groups at a 100 yards with my bdl 300 ultra. I ordered a box of the tac x 168s too to try later.

    From what I've seen, the Tac-X is a rebranded TSX & the Tac-TX is a rebranded TTSX. The BC's are identical to one another (Tac-X to TSX & Tac-TX to TTSX), i'm pretty confident they are the same bullet.

    this is the response i got from barnes


    We have a few runs in the works but I cant tell if they are sold or not. You would be best suited to buy the TAC-TXs while you can. They are the exact same bullet just in a different label so we can sell them to police and military.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. I didn't realize manufacturers had to relabel product just to market the to the Law Enforcement/Military crowd.

    Learn something new everyday

    I kind of shook my head at it too. Kind of like hornady calling a vmax a zombie bullet and selling them to idiots.
