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 3 out of 5 by Accurate 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. January 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best bullets period as i enter my 71st year, (60th hunting), the one thing I hate to do is exercise while trying to find an animal. all i can say is with Barnes tsx or ttsx ( from 400 grain {Brown Bear}, to 168 {whitetail}, I never go much more than 40 or 50 yards. Last Caribou (250 grain TTSX) didnt take a step. Dropped in his tracks. The guide and I just looked at each other. I'm sold on their stuff. November 16, 2013
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 ;) April 15, 2013
