Never shot the swift.Expensive or not everytime I pull the trigger I know it will hit the ground if I do my part.

A buddy of mine is a guide for european hogs down in South Carolina and this is a 300 grain bullet out of a 45-70 that was taken out of the opposite side of a 300lb hog. I can't say that the bullet could've performed any better than this.

I really think Barnes has set the bar and now the TSX and tipped TSX are the standard by which all other manufacturers will strive to meet.

I am new to here but definately not new to hunting. I used to shoot Nosler BT all the time a respected gun guru friend of mind reccomended tryin the TSX and I will shoot nothing else now. I load them in my elk and deer rifles. I shot two deer last year with my 257WTBY and neither took a step out of their tracks, one at 70 yds and one at 190 yds. My 14 yr old daugher shot a big whitetal buck at 100 yds with my Sako 25-06 and dropped it like lightning struck. 1 elk with 338 and 1 with 300 WTBY both one shot kills with bigger bullets as well.

I picked up a box of these TSX's in 30-06 165gr. I'm curious to see how they are going to shoot and perform.

Anybody tried the Tipped TSX? For the 7mag they only make it in 110gr. seams a little light.
