Solid Copper Performance
The Barnes TSX projectile has gained worldwide recognition as one of the deadliest, most dependable bullets you can use in a 223/5.56 platform. And thanks to it’s full copper design, the TSX round is a non-leaded projectile, this means that where laws require this is the best round to use for hunting applications.
“Barrier Blind” Performance
The Barnes TSX bullet offers tremendous performance against barriers such as auto glass and sheet metal. As it is solid in construction, there is no jacket to separate from its core, as with traditional bullets. The bullet stays intact after passing through intermediate barriers.
This load performs particularly well in shorter barreled carbines, because it is designed to expand, not fragment. The expansion threshold for this bullet is approximately 1800 fps. Even fired from very short 10.5″ barreled carbines, this expansion velocity threshold is maintained out past 200 yds.
Additionally, this load performs very well as a hunting round on medium sized game such as deer and antelope.
Please note that this round requires a 1 in 8″ twist or faster barrels are required to stabilize this bullet.
