Re: Barnes TSX

I've used them in my 30-06 and they shot well on paper, but so did the Hornady Interlocks and when Iím pushing a bullet at sub 3000fps and Iím shooting at short distances Iím not going to pay for the premium bullet when I can probably get by just fine with a good ole interlock.

I plan to try the TSX in my 300 RUM in the upcoming months to see if I can make a viable deer load out of it. I'm a bit concerned with them penciling through the deer at that velocity though. Only opening weekend will tell.

Re: Barnes TSX

Never had a TSX pencil through. Killed an Antelope last October In Wyoming at 777 yards with perfect results,from a 300 Win and 180 TSX
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
