I've used Barnes TSX in several rifles for more than a decade and been very pleased.  If I recover the bullet it has always shown perfect expansion and nearly 100% weight retention.

This 165 grain TTSX bullet shot from a 300 WSM was recovered from an elk shot at 360 yards. Weight after recovery was 164.6 grains.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

I really wanted to use Barnes bullets because of how they pedal and retain there weight, but I could never get them to shoot worth a darn in any of my rifles, hammer hunter bullets were way more accurate for me. And just as devastating on game.

I use 150g Barnes TTSX in my 30-06. They leave the muzzle at just shy of 3,000 fps. I've been pleased. Have taken antelope at 374 yards and elk at 35 yards.
