Bullet review
 
Just wanted to let you all know I shot a Bison earlier this month with my Tikka .338 using 225g TSX. Bullet went through both shoulders and liquified the lungs/aorta. One shot on this 2000 lb. animal and he fell over dead within 10 feet of being shot. That is the type of bullet performance I have come to expect from this awesome bullet.

I forgot to mention in my TTSX review that I was shoot a 180 gr. bullet. Same here with 180 gr. bullet. I don't know the exact count on deer that I've used the TSX on and a couple antelope and a couple elk. All one shot kills and dropped on the spot. Accuracy is sub MOA. averaging .380 in. grps. One elk I shot with the 180 gr. TSX was at 544 certified by Lieca rangefinder yds. The only time I took 2 shots but he was dead on the first shot. The first shot shattered his front leg above the elbow and went in chest, clipped part of his heart with no exit. He turned around and I hit him in the same exact spot on the oppisite side. Shattered his leg above the elbow and into his chest with no exit. Dropped right there. The best 2 shots I've ever made on game. Have made some over 400 yd. shots with TSX on antelope and 300 plus on deer. Polaxed everytime. I've never noticed this with the many other types of bullets I've shot in the last 35 yrs. They have been my most accurate bullet in my .243,.308,7mm Rem mag and 300 RUM along with the TTSX. I'd recommend them to everybody.

I have used this bullet since 2004 with great success on pronghorn, deer, and elk. Accuracy with my load and rifle has always been sub moa.

Have loaded the 53gr TSX for my 22-250 for a number of years. I was looking for a bullet that I could shot hogs with and get the penetration needed for a solid kill time after time. The Barnes TSX has not disappointed me and 12-15 hogs from 90-350# have gone down with none going over 50 feet.

I started loading the Triple Shock in my 250 Ackley after having an interesting incident with 100gr Nosler BTs. I hit a good sized buck at about 20 yards and it got up as fast as it went down, walked away and never left a blood trail. This was not a failure on the bullet's part as the BT wasn't designed to hit at 3100+ fps. However, since most shots in PA where I was hunting are under 100 yards, I needed a change. Since then I've shot three deer with three shots with identical results; .257 cal hole where the bullet went in, a perfect 1" hole going out, and everything in between turned to red jello. I hit one of the deer running at about 150 yards and it looked like the deer ran into a strand of barbed wire fence they way it went down. Excellent bullets.

I have been using the Barnes TSX in several calibers for as many years. I have never had an animal walk more than a few steps, including Elk. the standard is caliber size entrance and at least 1" exit. Even on Whitetail size animals. I have spoken many times with the balistics folks at Barnes and what they tell me is speed is the key. I am a boiler room shooter, not a high shoulder. As for the BT, I don't like eating framents that much!! This Barnes is very accurate in all my firearms.

Well I thought I'd never say it but I've gone back to BT's for deer. The TSX will kill a deer dead but they will still run a significant distance ... leaving a blood trail that the blind could follow. I agree with dt's comment to a point but let's just say dt obviously needs more exercise than I do. I totally recommend the TSX for moose, elk and big bears.

Have been using TSX since they came out. Recently loaded the 168gr TSX with 60.5 grains of RL19, Win Case, Federal 215M primer in my 30-06. One ragged hole at 100yd. Fantastic!!!

I have shot numerous animals with Barnes solid copper bullets, performance has always been excellent. When people state that the bullets just pencilled through and the animal just runs off , I'm unsure what they mean. The animal would have to die for them to find this out. Over and over again whether the range is 20 or 400 yards the result is the same; calibre sized entrance wound and 3/4 inch exit from any angle with all internal organs liquified between the holes.

Performance on deer sized game is somewhat poor. Obviously all passed through but with little expansion. Bullet better suited for large game, i'm sure it will put a hurtin' on elk, moose, ect... I'm also having trouble getting my 100 yard groups under 1.5 inches. Nothing wrong with that but my rifle will touch 3 shots consistantly at 100yds. Folks at barns told me to try seating bullet 70 thousandths off the lands, no luck there either
