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.

Rated 5 out of 5 Vor-tex 150 grain 30-06
I killed a nice 8 pt. using this ammo last year. It ended up being a 100 yrd chip shot. He ran maybe 35 yds before crashing. The Barnes made it easy to track ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyhole Best Hunting Ammo I Have Ever Used!
I have experimented with several types of prerolled hunting ammo for my Savage 111 chambered in .300 WM.
Have tried Winchester Powerpont, Remington Corelokt, Hornady SST, Federal with Nosler Partition, and Federal with Barnes TSX.
All have proven to be suitable for the big game we hunt here in BC, and all shoot fairly well out of my gun.
However, on a few occasions I have taken close shots in the 30 yard range. Some of the results were disastrous; there were entry and exit holes larger than my fist on a big mulie that was shot with 165 gr Partitions.
Switching to the TSX has eliminated that. I use the 165 grain for moose, deer, and elk exclusively. It goes right through them and drops them in their tracks with minimal meat damage. My savage will shoot MOA at the range with these as well, which I honestly don't see much with basically stock inexpensive hunting rifles and factory loaded ammo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 7740gloria Spinning bullets
I bought a box of Barnes VOR-TX 7mm mag ammo. I went to range to sight in my rifle with the new ammo. I could not group a single shot within 7 to 8 inches of each other. I turned the rifle over to my son to see if it was me jerking the shots. Nope! Then my son noticed the bullets spun in the casing. I emailed Barnes and they basically said it was normal and it should not effect the performance of the rifle. I took out the Federal Premium copper bullet loads (they did not spin) and grouped 3 shots that a quarter covered. Barnes made no effort to make it right, as you know you cannot send back ammo for a refund. So that was $100 down the drain. Check your ammo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WallyB Outstanding ammo
Barnes ammo is one of the best ammunition money can buy. I mostly use it in 300 WSM. The ammo is very accurate and extremely deadly on big game. The bullet always exit the animal (no matter what) leaving an entry and exit wound for easy tracking if the animal goes any where. In most cases, animal just drop in their tracks as if they were hit by a truck and they do not take a step. Even if they run, they do not go far at all. When I was sighting in my rifle one of the bullets hit the metal frame where the ply wood sits. The bullet went straight through the one inch thick steel frame. Despite that fact, the bullet does mushroom very well. The wound cavity on the deer I hunted was always huge. In other words, the bullet does mushroom creating a big wound channel, and it still penetrates and goes through deer 100 percent of the time (in my case).
