    Barnes TXP 25 06

    Chaps,

    Does anyone have experience of these copper bullets in 25 06, they are 100 grain. Going to be finding a load for them soon with the help of a generous SD member, for general stalking purpose. Any thoughts on loads, speeds, or general performance appreciated. Will be used in a sako 75.

    cheers

    Saw a few sika shot with them in 270 and 7/64 they were not very good at all. One stag had to be tracked 3 hours after it was shot it was still alive they did not expand at all, hardly any blood.

    I would stick to nosler ballistic tips thats what I use in the 25-06 can't fault them.

    Cheers for the input. Was this recent....I believe the design has changed a bit. I do tend to use BT's or 120 fusions to good effect, but need some non lead variants.

    I've used Barnes TSX and TTSX for a number of years in 6.5x55 .308, 7mm Rem mag and have had no problems with them, certainly not had any runners, wouldn't use anything else now.

    They sound heavy for calibre for a copper bullet. I'm using 130 gr barnes in a 308 Sako 75 and will be going for 95 gr in the 260, once they arrive. If in doubt push them faster!

    Thanks for the input guys, will tentatively try them-through necessity-but continue to use lead where appropriate. ��

    Sound advise , I've used them and they need to be pushed . They work very well , just remember to use a lighter for caliber bullet than you would if you were using a traditional cup and core , lead/copper bullet and you shouldn't have any problems .
