On game, I can attest that they function great. For years I used factory loaded Federal Premium 7mm RM loaded with the Barnes 160 TSX's that were XLC coated (blue). That ammo's product number is P7RK. They haven't made it in years, but if you find some, and you shoot a 7mm RM, that was some awesome whitetail ammo. Shot true and flat out to 500 for me.
However, I can't recall ever hearing about them testing Barnes bullets on hadji's... LOL I would be interested in seeing the results of that test, though...
I imagine the Snip's are probably still using surplus FMJ's the gov't purchased back in Vietnam...Knowing the gov't...
