     OTHER DESCRIPTION  Slightly better group than the TSX, but not by much. Kicks significantly harder than a 450 grain round. Same impact point as Barnes Triple Shock with 80 grains of H4895. I could not get these to group as well, or have a coincident impact point with the 500 grain TSX using the same powder as the Triple Shock (80 grains H4895).

     OTHER DESCRIPTION  Great shooting round - repeatable accuracy. Kicks like a mule. Broke my scope, got it replaced, then it cracked the stock. The Barnes solids also shoot extremely well with this load - a bit faster.

     OTHER DESCRIPTION  Extremely accurate and consistent. Kicks like a mule. Went through two sets of scope rings, broke a scope, split the stock on the rifle even though the action had been bedded adn a cross bolt installed (no muzzle brake either). Same impact point as Barnes Banded Solid with 75.5 grains of H 322.
