Have had great results with Barnes 290 tez, this year I switched  to the tmz. The only reason I switched was I needed bullets and the tmzís were available. They werenít much harder to load and very slightly better BC so I just stayed with them.

personally I use one form of a Lehigh product or another...

The Lehigh/Knight Bloodline is a great bullet, either the 300 or the 275 grain models.  The terminal performance these bullets offer is outstanding.

This is the .458x300 CF

The Lehigh 275 is virtually the same except a little shorter.

This a computed Ballistic sheet for the two bullets to show comparison

Lehigh is also now offering a .452x265 CF copper bullet that is also a great bullet.

265 Ballistics...

I love the Bloodline 275 grain. Iíve taken five elk and one deer all single shots and very little tracking.

Good rifle.

My elk load: Barnes TMZ290, 110gr 777 3F,  Musket cap.  I use the same for deer, but elk is my primary game animal

I ended up finding the bloodlines in 275 grain on sale for 20$. I got 777 50/50 pellets and a 209 conversion kit for my bighorn. Iím only hunting deer here in Washington with it so I feel like it should be good.
