Tipped TSX

Where could I find some load info on the 140g TTSX? It isn't in their most recent reload manual.

Re: Tipped TSX

Use the same load data as the TSX.

Re: Tipped TSX

barnesbullets.com go to technical/load info....for the record they work as advertised.....extremely deadly. 1 17.5 inch 10 pt. ran 15 yds leaving a blood trail an idiot could follow obviously not needed. One nice doe..... ran 50 yds.... same scenario. Doe was running dead. can't figure how she went that far. shot placement was great. COURSE a 2 yr old could have followed the trail. After having poor results with other premium bullets In my riles, this will be the only projectile for deer and the like!

Re: Tipped TSX

I have not had a chance to load the e-tip yet. I don't believe they were available when I was creating the load for my .280. Do they offer a 6.5? As Noslers are inherintly accurate, If my 6.5 x.284 doesn't like the Barnes I have on the way (ordered Saturday) I may try them. I was not impressed with the swift Scirroco II on Whitetail deer in my 6.5. That was where my research went this summer. Had one heck of a load. Performance was marginal at best on deer. I hope it was a fluke. However it was enough of a fluke for me to look elsewhere. My AR and .280 have both had great results with the Barnes. I want to get one with my 6.5 thus I went with what has proven success for me. It wasn't till the TSX and TTSX that I could get Barnes to be consistent without spending a fortune. I think it was a smart move for them. They do expand fully and do penetrate as well as exit. I only had one freak experience with the TSX. Deer was 10 yds (I was scouting) Not one exit hole but three. Deer was hit with a bout 2433 foot pounds at ten yds. It was pretty amazing the damage. It only went about 40 yds. When I cleaned the deer I could not figure out how it ran that far. The inside of the deer was DESTROYED. Luckily I aimed behind the shoulder and lost no meat. I don't believe I'd try that in the shoulder. It could get messy.
