Again I have to agree with you on the Barnes.Lawdog said:Nosler Partitions are excellent bullets in the 100 gr. .243 version but if Barnes had kept the 95 gr. TSX(I managed to get two boxes of them before they were replaced) instead of opting for the 85 gr., I would be using the TSX instead of Partitions. Better accuracy, penetration and performance. Lawdog
Better penetration with lighter weight bullets which means a flatter shooting load and better accuracy. Nosler Partitions have never given me the best accuracy but they performed(held together and penetrated better) than any other bullet I used for over 40 years. Now the Barnes TSX has come along and it performs even better. Lawdogbeemanbeme said:Lawdog, you shoot a deer with a NP and he falls down dead. Please explain how the barnes thing gives better performance???? Is the deer deader when you shoot it with a barnes bullet.
Yes, Federal does for one. Weatherby is another. The following is a list of the Federal loadings using Barnes TSX bullets with more to come in the near future. Lawdogponcaguy said:Is there any factory ammo loaded with the Barnes bullet?

Which Nosler are you using in the 6.5x55? Are you using IMR 4350?TNrifleman said:I use Nosler Partitions in my 270 Winchester, 7 MM Mauser, and 6.5.55 bolt action rifles. I am sold on the Partitions performance on game. For my money, give me Partitions. Accuracy is quite good also!
