Looking for some good hunting ammo and sight in a 30-06. Supplies seems to be a little low out there... Is Barnes Vor-tx any good?
Right on, thank you!My expierence with barnes is that they either work great for you or they'll be a huge disappointement. I'm in the disappointment lane.
I never could get any of it to group worth a crap, either factory or reloads....and I reloaded about $500 worth before I gave up.
On game, it tends to blow through the animal, leaving a small entry and exit wound, allowing the animal to run...sometimes for quite a ways. The ones I have recovered, failed to mushroom.
I switched to the Nosler E-tip (150 grn 30-06) and all my troubles went away. It has a very similiar performance to Nosler partitions.
The only way to find out which is right for you is to try it out on your rifle. Mine hated the things.
