Bullet review
 
I know these bullets are out of date now but I still have some. In 2003 I used a 168 gr, XLC moly match to take a bighorn at 306 yds. He went ass end over and dead. The XLC accuracy was never near as good as the TSX or TTSX. The XBT wasn't either for that matter. The were both deadly on game though.

I haven't had a chance to use one on big game yet, but these bullets sure can shoot. My off-the-shelf Ruger M77RS (pre MKII) is a .30-06 with the only modification I did being Brownell's Acraglas gel bedding I did myself. I load Federal cases, CCI 200 primers, and 57 grains behind the XLC BT 165 grain slug. I get five shots just inside 1" at 100 yards. Now, if I can just get a shot at a big deer or elk with these.

I have now been using these bullets in my .338 Winchester Magnum for hunting elk in New Mexico and Colorado. Every elk I shot with this round has droped in it's tracks. Prior to using these round I used Winchesters balistic silver tips. I shot an elk in the neck at 150 yards with this round and after tracking him for about 3 miles and a full day we were unable to locat the animal. The next year I was hunting with my father who was using a 30-06 loaded with a 180g trophy bonded bear claw by federal and me with my .338. We had two bull elk walk up on us. He shot the first on broad side behind the front sholder whil I shot my bull facing me and the fathers elk ran for aprox 2 1/2 miles before we lost it. The one I hit had the bullet travel from the breast plate and exit through right below the pelvis liquifying every thing inside. He never took another step.

I load the 185 grain XLC with 69 grains of reloader 15 and have been getting 3100fps and 3947ft-lbs of energy with 1" groups at 100 yards using a savage 116ss with a 24" barell. Just thought you might want try this load. I have been very impressed with the results.

This specific Barnes projectile is the second spent bullet I've recovered from a game animal. The first being a Barnes X form a 300 Winchester Mag. Both bullets recovered had 99% weight retention. Also, these bullets excersed quick, effective and lethal kills on big and heavy boned game animals.

If the bullets are not grouping small enough make sure all copper fouling is out of barrel. A clean barrel will not insure accuracy, I found a load for my .25-06 that shoots a five shot group of .78" at 100 yards. To find that loading I played around with COL from seating the bullet .050" to .015" off the lands found that .035" off the lands gave the most accurate grouping. Once I had the seating depth narrowed down I then found a powder type and charge weight that worked well. During the course of load development I had groups that went from 6 inches down to the best grouping of .78". I shot about 60 bullets finding this, if I had not of bought about 300 bullets in 100 .257 at a very good price I might not have been so stubborn to find an accurate loading. My advice to anyone thinking about these bullets is plan on the possibility of long load development.

Took a larger bull elk in Utah last year with my .300 Weatherby 180gr XLC (77gr IMR 4350). Range finder had him at 234 yard across the canyon. Quartering away, hit him in the last rib angling to the back shoulder. Bullet recovered from under the hide. 100% weight retention on the bullet. He never took a step.

WHEN FIRED AT CLOSE RANGE THE BULLETS PEADELS COME OFF VERY EAISLY LIMITING FRONTAL AREA AND ENERGY TRANSFER. PENETRATION IS EXCELLENT, BUT IF YOU WANT A BULLET THAT WILL PUT THE GAME DOWN MORE QUICKLY STICH WITH THE GRAND SLAM OR TROPHY BONDED BILLETS.YOU GET MAXIUM PENETRATION AND A LARGE FRONTAL AREA FOR ENERGY TRANSFER ABG A LARGER WOUND CHANNEL.

I am the resident sniper where i work and have had many heated debates around the heater about bullets and balistics,these guys swear by the old core lock bullet,that a bullet that passes through a deer is wasted energy,i argue that a bullet that a bullet that passes through a deer and leaves a 3 inch hole on the exit is well used energy,well just as it may be we all went hunting together and 6 of us where using 243^s i was using a barnes xlc and h4831 powder, i think the load was 37 grns(not absolutly sure ) any way 5 of us killed a deer, 2 of us useing the xlc helped the others track there animal after being severly wounded by core lock^s and balistic tips,both deer kiled with the xlc droped within a anvils throw of where they where shot,i adjusted for drop and high wind and made a bad shot,but the entrance wound was about 1 inch in dia ,and the front shoulder busted all to peices on the exit side,I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE XLC PREFORMANCE AND WILL CONTINUE TO LOAD THEM.........
