Tried these out in my A-Bolt 270, factory rifle with Holland's brake and using factory ammo...four shots, one ragged hole at 100 yds. Accubonds do well, maybe 1.5 MOA, but my confidence went up significantly with the Barnes Vor-Tx. I have a whitetail trip this fall to Oklahoma and shots will likely be inside of 200 yds. I don't think accuracy of either will be an issue, but confidence does wonders for me. It seems like Barnes are either a love or hate with not a lot in between. From reading the searched threads it seems like many pencil thru, and there is no consensus of whether it happens only at long range or at short range...some even recommend hitting bone to get them to expand. If inside of 150 yds or so, is this the sweet spot for Barnes, or is penciling an issue even at extremely short ranges? Doesn't seem to be any complaints about AB's, so maybe I should just use these, but my confidence is sky high after the TTSX's. Any spread in groups with AB's I attributed to my errors, while the TTSX led me to believe that my abilities were there and that maybe my gun just doesn't like AB's as much as I thought. I guess my question is mainly whether TTSx vs accubond performance is significant enough to offset the huge jump in confidence.
