Do monolithic bullets make calibres fight in a heavier class? Bullets like Barnes TSX and TTSX , Sellier&Bellot Exergy, .......and many others as an example.
Does the use of these bullets allow the calibre to be used on game heavier than is intented use? From the start I am a Nosler Partition man. A 175 grain Nosler Partition out of a 7 mm RM looses about 35% of it's weight, wich makes a mushromm from about 113.75 grain. A 120/130/140 grain Barnes X bullet out of a 270 or a 6.5x64 looses almost no weight and has at similar velocities a heavier projectile to penetrate the game. A 80/85 grain TSX/TTSX bullets could in this scenario be an excellent bullet for lighter sized hill deer.
These bullets could allow us to use lighter calibres, with less recoil and still have optimum performance on game. What do you think?
