I use Barnes TSX and TTSX in 15 of my guns and Swift Scricco's in 2 others. I have not had any problems with any Barnes bullets. I do alot of load development using Barnes bullets. Some example's:150gr TSX in (2) 7 Ultramag's, 180gr TSX's in (7) 300 Ultramag's and (4 )338 Ultramag's with 210gr TSX's. All have killed some deer and mostly elk with 1 shot. Only 1 was shot twice, but it wasn't really needed. I shot a 200lb bear with a 300 WSM
165 TSX at 131 yards and I could almost put both of my fists through the exit hole. Shot placement was right behind shoulder. I also use them in my 270, 270WSM, 7mag, 7 RSAUM, 30-06, 300 RSAUM, and 338 Winmag. I talked to a guy at Barnes and he said the Tipped TSX's will open up sooner and expand faster than the TSX's. I very happy with the Barnes Bullets. Only complaint I have is there BC sucks. Ty from Barnes told me that when the TSX's came out that the BC was the same as the X Bullet. Well later that info was false. I did call him and complained about the BC. But I had already bought over 1500 bullets. And I've bought more since that conversation. So far I been lucky with the barnes bullets and the guys I've loaded for are happy.
