Perhaps this belongs in the shooting forum, but the "what gear rocked" thread had an interesting discussion on the barnes bullets.
I used the 180 grains barnes tsx with great success on my winny mag. Started using the 200 grain tsx on the 325 WSM. No issues for two straight moose hunts. Last year I drilled a bull through the heart, recovering the bullet in the front shoulder. Looked exactly as it should have. I did a follow up shot, even though the bull didn't need it. We recovered that bullet as well, but just under the hide on the rib cage. No expansion, just ran a foot under the hide.
I loved the bullet for years, I have friends who have killed dang near everything in Alaska and Africa with it, and have had no problems. However confidence in your gear is a funny thing. I switched to Nosler Accubonds and my gun just absolutly loves them, I mean REALLY loves them.
Any other barnes issues?
