Precision loaded with the deadliest bullets on the planet, Barnes® VOR-TX® Centerfire Rifle Ammo gives hunters all copper accuracy, terminal performance, and handloaded precision in a factory loaded round. Offered with Barnes' deadly TSX, Tipped TSX, and TSX-FN all copper bullets, these rounds deliver lower fouling, better accuracy, greater velocity, and lower pressure for performance you will love. The bullets' all copper construction delivers a lighter bullet than comparable lead core bullets, delivering higher velocities, flatter trajectories, and less recoil. This construction also delivers nearly 100% weight retention and produces surer, deeper penetration with its specially engineered nose cavity that peels back into four sharp-edged petals that cut through game. This specially designed nose cavity also expands to double the bullet's diameter almost immediately after impact at both high and low velocities, giving you a bullet that is as deadly on longer shots as it is at point blank range. Multiple precisely engineered rings cut into the bullet shank serve as relief valves as the bullet travels down the bore, giving the copper material a place to expand into under pressure for reduced pressure, less fouling, and better barrel harmonics for improved accuracy. Made in USA.

I love this ammunition. It's lead-free, shoots straight, and doesn't foul your rifle. Not to mention its lethality. In Zimbabwe I took down a large Zebra stallion on the move with one quartering uphill shot at 140 meters using my Tikka T3 chambered in .30-06. The PH thought I missed him, since he crested the ridge he was climbing. When we got there, he was dead as a doornail, with zero blood pool.

Being a Californian, I'm subjected to ridiculous laws...one of which is lead free hunting. I bought 2 boxes of these in .308/150gr. to sight in and then hunt with. At 100 yards from a bench these were all over the place. Did cold bore shooting over several days, same thing. Put in another brand of premium .308 in my rifle, fired 5 shots, and they produced one ragged hole (so it's the ammo, not the shooter or rifle). Barnes is known for top notch products, but they have lost with me.

I used the 180 gr in my Tikka T3 Lite 30.06. Shot 200 yds at the range and bullet holes touched. I shot an elk at 190 yds right in the shoulder, barely quartering to, and the bullet penetrated just inside the entry shoulder. I tracked him in the snow with absolutely no blood just tracks, up the mountain approx 300 yds and caught up with him where he appeared wounded. I was able to finish him off with a 100 yd shot, quartering away, that went in the ribs and lodged on the inside of the opposite shoulder. It appears the first shot was a dud shell, which is hard for me to comprehend, but buddy I was hunting with said the 2nd shot was definitely louder than the first. Not sure what to make of this but I do like the accuracy and the reviews of it's penetrating power.
Buddy of mine shooting exact same bullet 180 gr 30.06, different box, shot an elk at 290 yds right behind shoulder, bullet lodged on inside of opposite shoulder. The bull went 10 steps and then went down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chelito Only Ammunition I'll Hunt With
Took a nice Arizona bull elk in the late hunt this past week. Ranged the bull at 321 yards. A perfect heart shot with the Barnes Vor-tx 30.06, 150 grain bullet put him down five steps from where he stood. In preparation for the hunt, I practiced at the range this year with Remington, Nosler, Hornady, and Federal ammunition. My 30-year old Weatherby Vanguard VGX can shoot sub-MOA with all of them. I chose the Barnes Vor-tx because it not only produced consistent sub-MOA patterns but it did much more damage to a variety of targets. Very confident with my choice. Only drawbacks are that it's pricey and has been difficult to find.
