    I know the 53gr V-Maxs are out and a new 35gr NTX. I have not seen anything on a 70gr though.

    yeah they are makeing them.but still unable to find anyone to sale any in a 70gn.when I found out about the 70gn bullet I new then I wanted to try it since my 223 realy shoots a 69gn bullet really well.will just have to keep looking for some one to sell them.just hope it soon rather than latter.want to be able and hunt with them.a 300 yard neck shoot would be sweet.

    The GMX is a solid copper bullet with a plastic tip. It's essentially a Barnes TTSX.

    Well im interested. I think the price would be a little more than the Barnes however.

    And in an interesting twist ....


    The Barnes website lists a 22 caliber 62 TTSX ... but it says it requires a 1-8 twist. I wonder what the recommended twist rate for the Hornady 70 grain bullet will be?

    They have a 70g TSX as well I just checked them out 29$ for 50 and the 6mm GMX is 45$ for 50 the prices where about 2 to 3$ diffrence going up with weight. SO the .224 should be around 41$ for 50. I like Hornady but I'm thinking the TSX is a much better deal.
