For those of you who like to reload the Barnes, the Tipped TSX is now available in 2 calibers, 7mm and 308. The 140 Tipped TSX for 7mm, and for the 308 two weights are available, 130 and 168. I bought the 168 a week or two ago and just bought the 130 tonight on the Barnes website.

What did they charge you?

Kinda funny....

nosler copied barnes and came out with the 'e bullet', now barnes copies nosler's polymer tip.

What we really need is a good price war to drive the cost of the bullets down!

48 and some change. shipping was 8 and change.

I should get them in Saturday or Monday hopefully. I would like to load some next Monday night and go to the range Tuesday so I can make a decision on what rifle to bring to Catoosa. 7mm WSM with 120 gr TSX 3500 fps or the 300 WSM with 130 gr Tipped TSX 3500 fps.

How many you get for that much money? Think of the Accubonds you could get for that price!

Whelen Man, O lord yes! I hadnt tried them before as I am a big Ballistic Tip fan but I loaded up some 180 gr Accubonds in my .308 with the same load as I use for 175 SMK's and my 100 yard group was one little ragged hole just like with SMK's. It probably measured around .15 or .2 lol So yes big Accubond fan now

You get 50. Yeah I could get about 100 Accubonds but I already have tons of Interbonds in 30 cal. I really want to see how well these shoot compared the the polymer tipped 150 and 165 grain bullets. A 130 grain bullet at 3500+ fps is going to be devastating.

Yes that would be very devastating I would think lol Quick question about interbonds if you dont mind? Do they have a cannelure like the SST's do?

What caliber is pushing a 130 at 3500+?

Dang, 3500 with a 130 is screaming! Expect a few petals to shed on impact!

I got 3400 with 140's out of my custom 7WSM, but I decided I needed to save the throat on that gun and backed off to 3300 \:\)

Any BC data out there on the new Barnes?

From what I've heard it's supposed to have about a 6% increase in BC but I don't know the true data.
