Re: barnes bullets

I shot nothing but LARGE groups when shooting XLC's. In my opinion, they are the worst bullets Barnes ever made. Your milage may vary and a few guys seem to love them.

For what its worth, the TSX bullets are the easiest bullets to get to shoot well. I shoot them bare without any trouble but my buddy sprays them with moly (spray & bake) and they shoot very well and foul very little. Not bad for solid copper bullets.

Re: barnes bullets

I agree Barnes tsx are the way to go.I got better accuracy, less pressure, and less fouling with the Barnes tsx.

Re: barnes bullets

I had the same experience, the TSX shoot lights out but not so with the XLC. I have a bunch of XLC's in 25 cal. 100 Gr.
if anyone wants to try them.

What exactly do you have that you're willing
to part with?
