      Super accurate. in 30.06 180G. But tends to pass through on lung shots. I am thinking of changing to BARNES.

            I shot them out of my 270 short mag. I on two occasions hit bone on whitetails and boy did it make a mess. I guess thats probably my fault for shooting at bone though right? I dont shoot them anymore. Country road is right though. They kill em dead.

                I have used them in my 25-06 for a few years now on mule and whitetail deer as well as pronghorn antelope, I would highly recommend them, they shoot under 1 MOA for me and every animal that me and my wife has shot with them dropped in sight, no worries if they wouldn't have though cause they leave plenty of blood to follow.

                  I have used them(243/95Gr) in the past with lots of meat damage One-Shot Stops, I switch to 80GrRem K/Lok
                  with less Damage and still One-Shot Stop on White Tails.

                    Tree, you're right about the meat damage. I've found that the Barnes TTSX is the best of both worlds, with quick expansion, but not so much meat spoiled---wonderful blood trail.

                      This has been my preferred round. They have always worked well for me. The only instances where I've had a problem were very close range shots, where I missed hitting any bone and the bullet didn't have much of a chance to expand. In both instances, the deer expired very quickly.

                          Very accurate out of my .25-06. Kills deer RND.

                            If you like spending extra money on a critter that doesn't have Ballistic Proof Fur!

                              Horrible. Just got back from the range with my .270 win and shot around 14 of these. 4 failures to fire. Each had been struck by the firing pin 3 times before being discarded just to make sure. The ones that did fire worked well and flew true. For the price, I prefer Browning BXR, of which I have had 0 issues and tighter groups (+4 grains more to the bullet). I've had better experience with Remington, Hornady, Browning, Federal, Sellier & Bellot, and Fiocchi in terms of reliability. I have 1500+ through this gun with the only hiccup being Winchester ammo and the occasional Remington, which fired after be struck by the firing pin the second time. I wouldn't care too much if I didn't pay as much as similar higher quality cartridges.
