Barnes' Triple-Shock X Bullet features include all-copper construction, no fragmentation, 28% deeper penetration than lead core bullets, and maximum weight retention. An exclusive feature of the Triple-Shock X Bullet is multiple, precisely engineered rings cut into the bullet shank. These grooved rings act as relief valve as bullet metal flows under pressure while traveling down the bore. Instead of flowing from the front to the base of the bullet, the copper material expands into the grooves. This results in reduced pressures and less copper fouling. Reduced pressures mean the bullet can be safely loaded to higher velocities. The rings also alter barrel harmonics, which can result in improved accuracy.

Thank you for having the bullets that I need. I have loaded other calibers which all performed great.

These bullets shoot great behind RL19 in both my 300 Weatherby and my brothers Ruger 300 Win mag. Consistant moa groups. Penetration is extreme with complete pass throughs on every deer I've shot.
The bullets leave a broadhead type wound channel without blowing a big, softball-sized hole like softer bullets. Although the tradeoff is less shock and knock down power.
So i usually just aim to take out the front shoulders. I assume the results are the same on elk so i shouldn't have to worry about shot angle or bones in the way. Less copper fouling in the barrel is also an added plus.
