Recently, we showed our recovered Barnes copper TSX bullets. I showed mine from a poor man's africa trip and bragged about them.....they certainly make things get dead right now.
Today, I talked with a Hornady rep who is a hunter. He told me about their fairly new Copper GMX bullets. Said they are not 100% copper like barnes, but 95% copper and 5% zinc to reduce foulingand glide better, says he is biased, but thinks they are better because they foul less, have six pedals instead of 4, and are a little softer to spread faster at under 2000 fps (shortly after muzzle velocity), they stay together better, fly much better and are cheaper. They are 2 fluted and polymer tipped.
I'm thrifty, but would still pay 92 cents per round instead of 76 cents (approx) to have a dead now anminal instead of a track down or heart break . Has anyone got first hand expierence with the Hornady bullets? He especially bragged on their 165 grain .30 cal. Thoughts, recovered pics, stories? I'm open minded, but have a good track history with the power of barnes even on less than perfect shots. Can they really fly like an AMax and hit as violently as a barnes TSX?
