Cutting edge lasers will expand reliably down to 1200fps

Those must be some long SOBís for a 145 to be considered single feed

i believe those are the MTH that are single feed. The lasers are tipped.  The MTH still need 1600fps

Well, quick update. Hit the range with our very own H2Ohunter today to test some new loads. This was the result of the Barnes 145 LRX. 4 shots into a group slightly larger than his pinky nail. Very pleased with this setup.

The 7mm-08 was significantly more troublesome,  per usual.

I don't know. Looks like you could use some moisturizer.

Looking good (The shooting not the nail job). Just ordered up some 140 e-tips today, if they donít work out then the 145 LRX or CEB MTH will be the next stop

Barnes are trash. Take a good look at Hammer Bullets.

https://hammerbullets.com/?s=.284&post_type=product

If you donít know ď It all ď already. The monoís have a crap BC, but the ďFewĒ  think their  cool. Youíre good to go if you are at point blank but then again any bullet will work to 400 yards. Their longer for weight, so you may want to drop the weight for a increase in speed to make up for the crap BC of the Barnes. Yep... You know how much BC matters for a scrony blacktail at point blank.  👍

That works for sure! Nice shooting!

Thatís what my groups look like with that bullet from my STW. Great shooting.

The performance in game is amazing. Been shooting long range since laser rangefinders hit the market. The LRXs are game changers for me. Iíve tried most of the ďlong rangeĒ bullets and wonít use them on game. Lots of failures.

There is an article out there from a PH in Africa that speaks from experience taking 5,000+ animals. He swears Barnes are the best choice on game from a recovery standpoint. Wish I could find it and share the link. Itís very convincing.

I'm happy to hear you've had such great performance from them. I'm not worried about long range performance to much, my longest shot on game to date is a little over 350. 95% of my animals are killed well inside 100. I just wanted a bullet that grouped well, was devastating on game, and didn't blow up into a million tiny pieces on impact. If the perform well at 500 in the off chance I have to take that shot, then that is a nice assurance to have. These seem to fit that bill.
