Introduced in 2003 by the request of Teppo Jutsu and SBR, Barnes' Triple-Shock X-Bullet has earned a reputation as "the perfect hunting bullet." In the 458 SOCOM. The polymer "Tipped" TSX bullet features the same 100-percent copper body with multiple rings cut into the shank as in the plain TSX. It delivers excellent accuracy performance - but with an added polymer tip that boosts BC and improves long-range ballistics. The tip and a re-engineered nose cavity provide even faster expansion. Complete penetration, virtually 100 percent weight retention, and four razor-sharp cutting petals that double bullet diameter means the new Tipped TSX creates more internal damage than any competing bullet. Instant expansion and perfect penetration ensure cleaner, quicker kills. The TTSX is the bullet of choice for many hunters for medium game.
