Re: Old Barnes 'X' Bullets for .270 Winchester... Any good?
The old X bullets were notorious for severe copper fouling and poor performance in animals. Numerous reports of a failure to expand and just zipping through animals. Not in every instance but enough to be a bit leery about hunting with them. I've never shot them so could add nothing that isn't anecdotal to the responses.
Life's too short to shoot an ugly gun.....
