– Barnes, Hornady, Lapua, Norma, Sako & Red Moose, Fox Bullets Classic Hunter – .366″ – 250gr – Bullet test, North Fork – .458″ – 300gr FP – Bullet test, Sako Powerhead Blade 162gr – 308win Factory cartridge – Bullet test. Four razor-sharp cutting petals expand to double the bullet’s original diameter to create a very long and wide wound channel. Savage recommends fast-burning powders such as XMP 5744, IMR 4227, and VV N110, all of which develop considerably higher pressures than are produced by black powder or Pyrodex. However, even these compressed loads create no more than max SAAMI pressure and remain safe. It’s designed for cartridges with short magazines such as the .300 WSM and .300 Win Mag. The advantages Spit-Fire and Spit-Fire TMZ bullets provide are higher BC values and flatter trajectories for shooting at longer ranges. Will TSX Bullets shoot through deer-sized game? About right. Our Solids do not expand. The 140 and the 100 gr TSX is about 2000 fps, the 210 gr TTSX is 1800 fps as per Dave. OP. Excessive pressures cause the sabot to fail, which results in inconsistent velocities and poor accuracy—even bullet tumbling. 130 TSX, 270 Wby, muzzle velocity 3560-3590, 80 yard shot and about 4' of elk: I'd have to say without reservation that those tttttsx's don't look as good as those Corelokts posted on some threads. Copper is relatively hard. See photos below for the bullet shape, weight retention (99%), and petal expansion (1.5 x original diameter). Expansion threshold for the 100gr Barnes TTSX was somewhere between 1847fps-2000fps in that testing, so it is a tough bullet that likes speed for expansion. Further than that, I would look at these. Barnes' TSX Bullet offers all the deadly effectiveness of the time-proven X Bullet. That was part of why I liked the Partition in my 243 as a kid, I may not have always had a great blood trail or gaping exit hole, but I always had an exit with some sort of leakage and the vitals were generally wrecked. I would expect their performance into dry paper to be erratic at best with poor expansion being common to typical. Excellent accuracy has been reported with the Varmint Grenade. I guess the other question to ask is what would happen to that bullet (130gr ttsx) at 308 win speeds. When shot according to our recommendations, TSX Bullets virtually eliminate copper fouling. Coty. In a worst-case scenario, even if all four petals detach because a close-range, high-velocity shot strikes very heavy bone, the bullet will retain at least 85% of it’s original weight. They simply can't open as readily when the speeds get lower.
A different tool is recommended for each bullet style (Expander MZ, Spit-Fire and Spit-Fire TMZ). We measured the impact velocities ca. We usually don't recommend crimping our smaller-caliber bullets. That is Proof that the TTSX and TSX are only good for up to 350 Yards or less! Hydraulic pressure causes TSX Bullets to open as soon as they strike tissue. I never tried then into dry newsprint or dry phone books. Plastic tips tend to over come this somewhat.
But to the results! Because of the Varmint Grenade's gilding metal jacket and copper-tin composite core construction, this bullet produces the best accuracy results when seated off the lands and grooves .020". Retained weights of the both bullets was almost 100% and of course at the excellent level. Copyright © 2000-2020 24hourcampfire.com, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Will your .44-caliber pistol bullets perform well at the higher velocities produced by .444 Marlin and .44 Magnum rifles? The Varmint Grenade is highly frangible, expending its energy early, seldom showing exit wounds on larger predators such as bobcats and coyotes. Will your TSX Bullets foul my barrel quicker than the other bullets I’ve been using? Pitting or etching in your barrel may occur if you do let it soak over a long period of time. It's also true of any expanding bullet--the reason some don't hold up so well when hitting bone. Rhino Solid Shank – .458″ – 300gr – Bullet test, .308″ hunting bullet test day! The LRX also features a polymer tip along with a longer nose profile and a boattail design that delivers match grade accuracy at long range with an incredibly high B.C. I was impressed with the lack of blood-shot ribs, on side or off, as MV is 3400 fps. Barnes feels measuring the BC over 300 yards provides customers with data more useful for long-range shooting out to 600 yards or more. The cavity opens up as soon as hydraulic pressure is applied to the nose cavity. Of course I'd be slinging 110gr TTSX's out of that rig if going for speed. Once the bullet strikes flesh, it immediately opens, creating four razor-sharp petals that slice through tissue. Of course I'd be slinging 110gr TTSX's out of that rig if going for speed. Contact Form Minimum expansion velocity for TTSX Jordan Smith
Quality big game bullet from the biggest copper bullet manufacturer. Recommended twist rates are as follows: .45 195 Up to 1:30" .50 250 Up to 1:32" .50 300 Up to 1:28" * Occasionally, a 1:28″ twist won’t be fast enough. Instant expansion and perfect penetration ensures cleaner, quicker kills. Re: Barnes TTSX low velocity expansion test. The lighter TSX Bullet delivers higher velocities and a flatter trajectory, and outperforms heavier bullets of conventional design. When Barnes tested several slower-burning powders such as H4198, and RL-7, these two powders gave pressures similar to those produced by black powder and Pyrodex. Every rifle is different.
Our quick-expanding XPB pistol bullets perform exceptionally well on even the largest hogs. Phone: (435) 856-1000 The LRX also features a polymer tip along with a longer nose profile and a boattail design that delivers match grade accuracy at long range with an incredibly high B.C. … 130 TSX, 270 Wby, muzzle velocity 3560-3590, 80 yard shot and about 4' of elk: I'd have to say without reservation that those tttttsx's don't look as good as those Corelokts posted on some threads. Can I expect copper fouling when using TSX Bullets? Their history starts from the year 1932. What is the purpose of your Aligner Tool? Many customers are purchasing sabots from MMP (phone1-870-741-5019) and using them to load XPB bullets in muzzleloading rifles and getting great results. But then the corelokts were found on the ground after the animal walked away. In the same situation, a lead-core bullet would likely disintegrate. Fax: (435) 856-1040 Will the Expander MZ work in my smokeless-powder muzzleloader? My guess is that the expansion would be similar. Copyright © 2000-2020 24hourcampfire.com, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

I would expect their performance into dry paper to be erratic at best with poor expansion being common to typical. Whatever accuracy you are used to for a good jacketed lead bullet in a given rifle, double the group size for a Barnes TTSX. OP. Will TSX Bullets always retain 100% of their weight? SHOP ONLINE. Additionally, all three designs feature the Accu-groove™ technology which provides the shooter with decreased fouling and improved accuracy. So I'm shooting 120 grain TTSX and 140 grain Barnes X bullets from my 7mm-08. Looking to take my 8mm06AI out west this fall, for Elk. However, the smaller hollowpoint on the .50 caliber 220 grain Knight Red Hot has a better BC because of the bullet’s streamlined design.
