This cartridge’s TSX by Barnes of Utah isn’t just nontoxic. It also showcases exemplary accuracy, as it possesses a sleek profile, precision heel radius and Accu-Groove which reduces contact with the bore to slow the already clean-shooting bullet’s rate of fouling. The TSX’s monolithic construction also means its rotational stability is unaffected by jacket concentricity flaws. Federal places the 165 grain TSX’s G1 ballistic coefficient at 0.398. You can set your sights on a buck standing at 300 yards and witness a trajectory which doesn’t rise higher than ~6.5” – and at that range you’re still talking about almost 1,700 ft lbs of kinetic energy on impact.
The TSX’s most impressive feature is its terminal performance. Copper’s superior durability enables the TSX to retain almost 100% of its weight as it punches a deep hole into its target. Meanwhile, the TSX’s nose cavity springs into action to produce four razor-like cutting petals that double the bullet’s original diameter! This round’s solid copper bullet is set in a new brass case, with nickel plating to fend off corrosion and reduce friction in the action. Buy it and go hunting!
