Barnes TSX (Triple-Shock X) Returns to Federal Premium Ammunition

    barnes tsx

    A favorite bullet that a lot of hunters rely on when reloading is the Barnes TSX (Triple-Shock X) tip. Its extremely high weight retention even when impacting bone is tremendously appreciated when hunting big game. Also, the ballistic coefficients (B.C.) for a hunting bullet are very high which turns over into repeatable, good accuracy for the shooter. For all of these reasons and more Federal Premium has decided to once again load some of their premium ammunition with the Barnes TSX tip. Some of the other highlights of the Barnes TSX bullet as stated by Federal Premium can be read below:

    • One-piece copper construction
    • Deep hollow-point tip
    • Grooved bullet shank improves accuracy
    • More than 99 percent weight retention
    • Deep penetration and large, consistent expansion

    To begin with, Federal Premium is going to be loading 18 different cartridge and grain weight offerings for shooters and hunters alike. Hopefully, if you are in pursuit of some type of game (or even a long-range piece of paper) one of those 18 cartridges will be something you already own. According to Federal, these ammo loads should be shipping to retailers soon if not already present.
