The funny part is that I weighed a few of the slugs before I loaded them and they normaly weighed in around 109.6 to 109.8 grains. I don't have a chrony but useing loading data and bullet drop figures I estimate this load to be right around 3500fps. They group right at an inch and the fouling shots go into the same group too. I really like that because I know that whether my gun is squeaky clean or a little dirty it'll shoot right where it's supposed to.
Amazing, the Barnes only lost .4 grains....... Have you done any group testing yet? How did your loads Chrony ?

The "cold shot" data, knowing where its going to impact is, in my opinion, one of the most important pieces of information about your rifle/load that you posses, ask any Sniper. To the rest of us, often the one round you get to squeeze off during a hunt is always the cold shot. Knowing where it will hit usually makes the difference of bagging one or walking home empty handed. Every time I fire one of my rifles, I go through the same cleaning process prior to hitting the range or field. The cold shot data is recorded along with the ambients of the day. For example; my 22-250 will place the first round 4" low and 4" left in calm wind at 600 yards. Important stuff to know.

I know a guy who uses 120gr tsx bullets in his 7mm mag and .280 AI for hogs and big utah & idaho mulies. He puts more game on the ground than anyone I know so I figured that if they worked for him I'd give them a try.
Thanks for the report. I was a little worried about the TSX after trying out the VG's. Sounds like they would work well on larger size game. I'll have to give them a try in my 7 Mag.
