Re: Barnes TSX New Rang Report
Im a little late but Ive been loading the 53 gr TSX in my Rem 788 22-250 for the last few years. I use 34 grains of Varget , Win WLR primers, Win brass trimmed to 1.902, and COAL of 2.9". I get around .75 moa out of it. It has taken several whitetail without a loss all complete pass through and quarter size exit wounds. My son shot a 115# spike this last week at ten feet. Perfect heart shot. The deer acted like he hadn't been shot but piled up at thirty yards, quarter size exit and blood everywhere. I would not hesitate to shoot a whitetail with it at reasonable ranges. Bullet placement is everything. Just my opinion and first hand observations. Hope it helps.
