Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

Unless I missed it, you might explain the circumstances of the vote. Are we shooting fuzzy wuzzies? Big? Little? 500yds? 800yds? 6mm? 338? That would help unless the intent is just to start an arguement, I MEAN DISCUSSION

I used a Partition in my 6mmAI for 'yotes (killed an crap load of jack rabbits) etc. With the perfomance of them on a 60yd Badger, I will not be using them for anything heavier.

I killed or seen killed (hunting partners) dozens of animals from jacks to elk, I have yet to see any negative effects; provided the shooter does their part of course.


Then again, as stated in a tra-zillion (that's a lot) other threads. There is no "best" bullet, doesn't exist. Bullets are selected in direct relation to the application.

I will have to give the accuracy edge to the Barnes, I have yet to have difficulty in getting them to shoot. From 6mm to 458 & many in between. The one Partition I did use shot well too, consistent .3's @ 100yds, but that is my only experience (besides the splatter effect).


Let the Trash Talking Begin!!

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

None of your three would be my choice but between them I'd to with the Barnes.

The Partition is a great penetrater but it's all but useless at long range due to the flat base, BC, and lack of expansion at lower velocieties.

Wildrose what would your choice be? A scirocco (hope I spelled that right) or a Hornady sst or interbond?

SST or Sirocco. Don't feel bad I keep trying to put an extra C in it too HA!

The more I shoot the Sirocco II the more I like them but I just don't have the history with them I do with the Hornady Bullets.

On tough stuff like Elk where penetration can be a Problem I'd stick with the tried and true Interbond over the other two but the SST and Sirocco are going to open better and low velocities going through only or primarily soft tissue vs the Interbond.

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

I voted for Barnes but in all fairness, I have never used a partition. The barnes are easy to load, accurate and every animal that I have shot with them (which is quite a few) have never gone more than 10-20 yds before falling over dead. The size of the animals were as small as a whitetail to as big as a oryx and oryx are some pretty tough critters.

I've never had a one shot kill with the Barnes TSX . I'd sure pick a partition over the Barnes .
