Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

If you read the data they say 20-50/1000's. however, we have found that Barnes like it between 5-9/1000's!

Ty at Barnes thinks its odd but he cant deny the results.

Thats why we put the OAL on the targets.

However, paper holes dont kill stuff! I've killed dozens of animals with TTSX bullets from Mtn goat to pigs. They are the toughest, most uniform penetrating/expanding bullets I have ever seen. At this point I cant see myself shooting anything else.
I know what Barnes says, but at what minimum vel. do you still get good espansion or if complete penetration good terminal results?

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

I really like the TTSX in a 7mm anything. I like the 180 Partitions in my 300 Win just had a load that is very accurate and works well. But I think the Barnes kill better. But dead is dead too.

Still nothing is more important than shot placement, period.

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

Absolutely-
I think we use bigger heavier bullets to make up for poor shooting skills and then call it "Ethics" when we cant make a shot!

Go look on the archery sites! holy crap what a bunch of excuse makers! Most of those clowns cant shoot past 20 yds! Dont ever hunt west of the Miss! we average about 50 yd shots and go out to 75 regularly!

Here are 2 pics
1. 243 target. The guys at Barnes agree; the 243 with the 85 gr TSX is the best all round combo there is. They all shoot it
2. here is an 80 yds shot with a broadhead at a 3" x
remember in old england they PRACTICED at 225 yds!!!!!

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/
