Now don't anybody have a heart attack or think I have been drinking anything. You all know I don't conjure up to Barnes TSX bullets. I order by mistake a box of MRX 180gr bullets for my 30-06. I don't feel like going to all the trouble of shipping them back!!!!!

So here is my question since I have not used them. Has anyone on this forum used the 180gr MRX in a 30-06 to take game. I am not interested in how it performed on paper, I want to know it's terminal effect on game because you shot something with this bullet. Thanks

Well I am not crazy at all about the TSX and never tried the TTSX. I am wondering if the Silvex core and especially the tungsten base would drive the bullet forward in a more direct manner keeping the bubble in front of the bullet meplat allowing a better cavitating wound channel than the TSX?

I also noticed that there is more variation in the weight of the bullets than I experienced with the TSX when I weighed each of the MRX bullets. I can see where you would not have as good accuracy with the MRX as opposed to the TSX if each bullet was not weighed and sorted before loading.

Man, these are expensive bullets indeed!!!! You would almost have to be lucky in picking a load that shoot good the first group or you would certainly run out of bullets. What in the world was Barnes thinking???? Oh, well I will at least shoot a few groups with a known powder charge and load that gave me good accuracy with the TSX because I am curious.
