Copper v lead core /bonded thoughts please chaps.
Iv just gone back to accubonds in the .300 as I was getting very mixed results with barnes ttsx, sometimes they would work fine animals would buckle in a heap then what would appear to be a good chest shot would run on as if you had missed only to collapse after some distance something I had never experienced with the bonded stuff ie accubonds in that particular rifle anyway and everything that I have used them on have literally been bang flops albeit with more meat damage particulally with smaller deer which was the only reason a changed to barnes.
Maybe its that particular calibre maybe the speed I don't know but its put me off them, for clean carcasses and minimal meat damage I found them superb + good accuracy. and it wouldn't be too much of a bother if I wasnt working on a tight boundary where if they ran only a small way into deep cover any animal of decent weight is going to be a nightmare to extract ! anyone else had less than satisfactory results from barnes ?
