I liked what the original Barnes X bullet did to animals, but not how it delivered lower velocity at higher pressure with horrible fouling and spotty accuracy. When the TSX was announced, I immediately though they'd solved the problem by using driving bands and significantly reducing pressure, so I was somewhat disappointed to find they'd only milled a few grooves in the side of the bullet. Now don't get me wrong; I like the Barnes TSX and what it does on game animals, I just don't think they went far enough.
After a lot of looking, I finally found a company that does it right:
Driving bands, long bullets, less engraving and drive pressure, higher velocities and exceptional performance. The price is a bit steep, but not when compared to Kynoch and Woodleigh. And it turns out they've been around since 1993! Guess this side of the pond is a little behind the times...There's a lot of reading on the site, but it's very enlightening, and the slideshow is worth the watch.
So...What do y'all think? Anybody actually used them? Any experience would be much appreciated before I sink a bunch of money into bullets and shipping.
