BARNES 30(.308)165gr TTSX BULLET TIPPED-BT 50/bx
Since its introduction in 2003, Barnes’ Triple-Shock X Bullet has earned a reputation as “the perfect hunting bullet.” Now, Barnes has improved on perfection by adding a streamlined polymer tip.
The new Tipped TSX features the same 100-percent copper body with multiple rings cut into the shank. It delivers the same gnat’s-eyelash accuracy and “dead right there” performance—but with an added polymer tip that boosts BC and improves long-range ballistics. The tip and a re-engineered nose cavity provide even faster expansion.
Complete penetration, virtually 100-percent weight retention and four razor-sharp cutting petals that double bullet diameter means the new Tipped TSX creates more internal damage than any competing bullet. Instant expansion and perfect penetration ensures cleaner, quicker kills. This is not loaded ammunition.

165 gr ttsx Elk Hunt
By Robert B.
on Nov 16, 2017
My .300 Win Mag is loaded with 165 grain Barnes TTSX at a muzzle velocity of approximately 3150 fps.
Four days ago, I harvested an elk with that bullet. The elk was at 250 yards. The bullet entered the left shoulder and exited low on the far neck. The results were as claimed by Barnes. The elk went down immediately. Note that one petal apparently broke from the bullet and traveled back into the the abdominal cavity. I believe this was due to the speed at impact with the bones of the shoulder.
All in all an excellent performance. I will use this bullet and powder combination on my next elk hunt.
