165 grain Barnes tsx in 300wsm
« on: June 30, 2020, 09:07:12 AM »
Anybody have reviews on this bullet, I just picked up a box to see how they shoot! How do people like 165 grain for muleys?

This bullet is magical in my Tikka 300WSM.  I use it for black-tail, mule deer and elk. It is dead on and drops them like a rock.

My Tika groups excellent with Berger 168VLD and drops them on the spot.

thats what I use to shoot but canít get factory loaded ammo anymore! So gotta find a new bullet.. the reviews on accuracy and performance on the Barnes tsx seems to be pretty damn good!

If you want try the 168 TTSX. they have a 1500fps expansion threshold compared to the 1800fps 165 gr TTSX.

Helps with extending your range for bullet performance.

I've killed 19 big game animals using the 165 grain TTSX out of a 300 WSM and have no complaints.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

I prefer the 168 and donít used the tipped ones as they donít fit in my mag.  You canít go wrong here, very well proven bullet for all big game.

My wife shoots these out of her Finnlight and they shoot well and have done great on a couple elk and deer.
