Hey guys im looking for a great load to try out of my TC Omega.. Has anyone used Barnes 275 gr xtp pistol bulllet (44 casull) in combination with BH209..A buddy of mine used them with White Hots and was able to get 1 inch groups at 100 yards but he says the white hots seem to absorb moisture after about 3 days of hunting. Im going to the range here soon any help would be awesome thanks in advance

Never heard of a 44 Casull, heard of 454 Casull. Try starting at 90 grs. og BH209 and work up to 110. Stop going up as soon as your groups start to open up. The Omega should really like that load.

Pistol bulleta are designed to open at low velocity , premium mz bullets with BH209 will give you great groups with a devastating wound chanel.

Not to hijack the thread, but is there any place local to Nashville to get the Barnes t-ez? I tried basspro with no luck.

SST is a Hornady bullet, the TEZ is a solid copper Barnes.

I too had good accuracy with the 250gr shockwaves, the problem I had with them was the expansion. One of the bucks I killed last year ran way too far with the shot placement I was able to achieve. Upon field dressing the animal, the bullet basically fell apart. The petals separated shortly after impact leaving a pencil size entrance wound and an even smaller exit wound. I found several petals during the field dressing process. That's why I switched to Barnes.
