Re: Barnes TSX

There enlies the problem. I don't plan to "long range hunt" these deer. Due to the terrain the farthest I will probably see one is 200 yards, so with a 180gr bullet it will probably hit him at 3100-3000FPS, and thats why I worry about a pencil effect.

    Waffen,
    The TSX is designed to "open up" and perform. It does just that very well. I used the 100gr .257 TSX in my 25-06 Sendero @ 3300FPS and it killed FAST. Deer was @ 200yds facing away from me. Bullet entered a fraction of a inch from the anus, traveled completely lenghtwise and lodged under the hide in the bucks chest adjacent to the sternum. The deer dropped. Dead.
    I recovered the bullet and it was a perfect mushroom. I cleaned up and weighed the bullet on my Denver Analytical Lab Balance, which measures out to the thousandths (.001) of a grain and it weighed 99.986 gn. Not sure what it weighed exactly before the deer, but that's not far from 100.0 gn's.
    Accuracy for that bullet/load on paper was one hole. I didn't even measure it because it was literally ONE HOLE. I love them and will continue to use them. Johnny K.

    The faster they hit the better for opening, Never heard anyone worry about too much speed for opening before.
    Every thing that myself and 3 hunting partners have shot with the TSX's have hit the ground pronto. from 20 yards to 777 yards.

    hi all
    what about meat damage,how much meat damage do you feel is acceptable??because on a lot of estates we go on in the UK,we get charged for meat damage,(witch i don't agree with)but it happens all the same.personally i think it is about putting the beast down with one shot,and causing as little suffering as humanly possible.and in so doing you have to make x amount of damage.i look for a 2" hole on the exist if possible,any thoughts on this and the barns tsx
    thanks
    Colin

    have you tried, the Midway UK shop?, they advertise that the TSX is in stock.

    The web address is here: http://www.midwayuk.com/index.htm


    The other place to try would be York Guns who had just about all the Barnes line in stock, the last time I visited.
