Barnes 120 grain Tac-Tx finally available to reload

I have emailed Barnes, I have called Barnes. I asked if there is a performance difference and the same answer I got from both was that there is no difference in expansion or penetration.

Now if Midway sells them for 20/box like they did the 110 black tips that would rock!

This does have a boat tail and a higher BC .358

So many bullets, so little time. Maybe in the next couple weeks I will get one loaded.

That 120 looks nice with the bt on it, but what is the benefit of the 120 vs the 110 tac-tx?

Might have to pick some up. They would be awesome in a 16" 308 carbine gas gun too.

Yeah I'm curious as to how these would shoot at higher velocities in bigger 30 calibers. Anyone know if they could handle 27-2800 fps?

I have ran the 110's to 2800, I think TXR has ran them over 3,000 successfully. If the 120's are constructed the same there should be no problem.

Ok guys,
We're well into deer season, has anyone shot a deer with the 120 Tac Tx? If so, give us details!

What powder were you running to get that velocity? The best I've gotten was 2400 with 110s.

You'll need the kind of powder that gets your barrel to grow :mrgreen: .

The 110 is a flat-base. The 120 is a boat-tail. So your rifle may be more accurate with one vs the other at close range vs long range. It is just an alternative to test out and see which you prefer.

For close-in self defense, which is what I like 300 BLK for, I would tend to pick the 110. For long range, the 120 may or may not have less wind drift.
