Good news! After making a post the other day about never having recovered a Barnes X bullet, my luck has changed. The guy that processed the hogs my son, friend and I got the other day called me today to come pick up the meat. Two of the hogs I shot with my 270 (130 TSX's) were pass thru's and caused a devastating wound channel. The third one I shot was a "Texas Heart Shot" and the guy recovered the bullet in the vertibrae of the neck. That is about 24 inches from the entrance wound and about 4 inches up from being a straight line. I am going to pick the meat up Monday and I will clean, weigh and photograph the bullet and post it under this thread. He said it looked "wicked". I asked him if it looked like a big X from the front and he said it definately did. I can't wait to see it! I've wanted to have an expanded X bullet since I started using them many years ago. I've never been able to keep one in an animal so I am excited that I finally did. I'll keep you posted!
