I use Barnes in a few rifles. I do have a couple that I just plain haven't been able to get a load worked up for so they use others.
I really like their terminal performance on deer. Most of my Barnes loads are developed for medium/large game. I stick with conventional bullets for lighter stuff like coyotes and varmints.

Given an identical bullet weight, I typically see about 200fps faster with a given powder charge.
BUT...you will reach max with a lighter powder charge running a Barnes than you will a conventional jacketed lead-core. So...be sure to use Barnes data for their bullets!

What calibers are you thinking about running them in? I can dig up some data from my journals for .25-06, 6.5x55, and .270Win.
Mostly TSX but I have a few TTSX loads too.
