"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"

I would have no problem taking head shots if available with the accuracy of these bullets.
You don't pay for the head do you?? Since there is really no meat in the skull?

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.

Re: Barnes TSX

Predator, what loads are you loading for the 7mm RUM and 300 RUM with the TSX's? I've been looking at this bullet, but hadn't talked to anyone using them in these calibers. what kind of speed and groups are you getting? Thanks

Start lower and work up.Accuracy on my 300 Ultra is 1/2 inch or less at 100 yards.Accuracy on my 7mm Ultra is 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch at 100 yards.I just worked up a load for my friends 300 Ultra and it was 94.5grs of Reloader 25 using the 180 TSX at 3380 fps.It shot 1 inch. Only 9 power scope. These are all 5 shot groups.

Re: Barnes TSX

I have 2 loads for my 30-06, I don't shoot the 168 but I shoot the 150 and the 165. I just finishing up with load development for the 165 . I need to go out 1 more time to decide on what seating depth. The 165 TSX is 60gr AA4350 at 2970, 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards at this time. I had a load yesterday that shot almost 1/2 inch.. Trying to confirm load 1 more time to see if it's going to shoot 1/2 inch at 100 yards.These are 5 shot groups. On the 150 Tsx I use 61gr AA4350 at 3070 1 ragged hole. 5 shot groups. These bullets are seated way out. I use a 6 inch drop funnel. Max load for both bullet weights.Start lower then work up.168 has 3 grooves and the 165 has 4 grooves.
