there's been a push to get a 95g TTSX from Barnes for the 6.8

he Barnes lab manager, Thad was at Bill Wilson’s ranch over the weekend along with “HTR” doing some testing of the much anticipated new bullet from Barnes.
We have been clamoring for this for some time and think it’s going THE bullet for 6.8
I am a huge Barnes fan and I have yet to pull the trigger releasing a Barnes projectile and lose an animal.
They go down hard and fast.

They wacked 11 pigs and were doing more testing, getting complete pass through penetration thorough both shoulders at 325 yards on a 190lb hog. get this, out of an 11″ SBR!!

I have some coming this week and will be loading and testing
If all works out right, a buddy is going Axis deer hunting next weekend and he will borrow my Wilson Combat 6.8 Recon.
That would be very cool if he were to get one.

Bill emailed these to me over the weekend and wanted me to post the pix up as he's driving back to work...

I know HTR has some and I have some enroute
we will both be posting groups

HTR has several different barrels and I have 2, I am going to do some testing on a few other locals guns

That should be a pretty good cross sampling and we will be providing feedback to Barnes

Also, Bill told me he was getting expansion and penetration on a 190lb pig, both shoulders at 325 yards today...
and get this, out of an 11" SBR with a MV of 2600 FPS

wicked cool

Nice work. I am a huge Barnes fan. Looks like Bill got a little chicken on the 30.5grn H322 load and stopped at three instead of shooting a full five string! BTDT!!
