Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

I think I will stay with my Barnes Bullets. They seam to shoot pretty tight groups out of my 300WTBY. I have yet to have a deer run more the 10 yds after being shot and it does a number on hogs as well.

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

I haven't used the NP, so simply voted for what I have used and what we're forced to use in parts of Calif., the TSX. Maybe I should have refrained from voting but here it is anyway. If you're looking for penetration with at least some expansion, I don't see how you can go wrong with the TSX.

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

Ive zapped a few deer at 500 with the 7mm 150 gr ttsx. The muzzle velocity was over 3500 fps. At 500 yards they penciled in and penciled out. The deer just pranced around in the field for a few minutes before falling over. They were hit an inch or so behind the shoulder. I even shot one at 100 yards that ran off never to be found. So Im not a big fan of them unless you hit em in the high shoulder. Which is where you want to hit them anyways. But if the wind takes it a bit and hits them behind the shoulder you might be in for a tracking job. That was with a customers gun that him and I took hunting. Those bullets weren't my first choice for whitetails but were what he wanted to use. They shot good though. Under 2" at 600 yards off the bipod. That's my experience with them.

That's fast, were you using the Rum case?

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

7STW. 3500 showed no pressure signs. 3600 did. We were using 81 gr of re-22.I know its over recommended loads but there were no pressure signs and it shot good. We had to use the fed mag primers cause it was so cold out when we did load development, around 0 degrees out, we were getting hangfires with regular primers.

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

This is a long range shooting forum, and the Partition is NOT a top choice for long range hunting. Then again, a Barnes bullet would not get my vote as first choice either. So I'm wondering why EITHER was chosen for the showdown.

Should have been Scirocco vs Accubond vs Interbond or something like that. They are all long range bullets.

Partiton is not accurate enough and Barnes bullets are too hard to be true long range bullets. As GENERAL PURPOSE hunting bullets the Partition or Barnes are excellent picks.

Still doesn't change the fact that Power Points and Core-Lokts have killed more big game than the fancy premium bullets. Price really matters to some people, and as long as it fills the freezer..............

Re: Barnes TSX/TTSX vs Nosler Partition

I voted for the Nosler only to vote against the Barnes. Now my experience with the TTSX was limited to a .308 on whitetails inside 300 yards. The TTSX shot accurate but that was it. I shot 5 white tailed deer with them and they just expanded very little. Ranges varied from 50 yards to 300 yards. I did kill and find all the deer but blood trails were poor and hard to follow. There was rarely a visible difference in the entry and exit holes, at least to the naked eye.
