Barnes’ TSX bullet remedies all of that. The solid copper bullet eliminates lead fouling, is totally nontoxic, and resists fragmentation throughout penetration to deliver a deep wound channel as it retains virtually all of its weight. Copper is less dense lead, of course, so the TSX is a little bit longer than a conventional bullet. Barnes compensates for this by precision machining pressure-relieving grooves into the monolithic bullet’s shank!
The TSX becomes particularly nasty as it burrows into soft tissue. Its nose cavity produces four sharp-edged petals that wreak a wide, catastrophic injury that treats game to a fast (and mostly) painless death.
Black Hills characteristically loads top shelf ammo, and they really pull out all the stops for their Gold label rounds. These 20 hunting cartridges ought to treat any 270 Win rifle splendidly as their new brass cases chamber and extract like gears in a Swiss watch, and their explosive components are matched to deliver optimal reliability.
