    I have always heard from people on this site that Barnes published B.C's are a lot higher than actual reality.

    I heard that too, that's why I'm curious if anyone tested them.

    Hell no. Not even close. Rick Jamison tested it side-by-side against the 180 Scirocco and 180 AccuBond...it got slaughtered. Hell, the 165 Interbond even beat it soundly.

    It did beat the A-Frame though! [​IMG]

    I'll tell you, the barnes bullets are deadly. I hear the TSX is accurate.....
    ....but unless i'm hunting dangerous game - I avoid them like the plague.

    Too bad cause they drop them in their tracks!
