I just got a 243, my first one. I am researching a load now. How did you like the performance of the 85 grain Barnes? Did you get an exit?
I have been shooting Barnes, almost exclusively, for 21 years. I do look at sectional density, especially for lighter bullets. The heaviest X bullet offered is 85 grains, which seems very light to me. I know it's a Barnes and you won't lose any weight, but 85 seems light. I wish Barnes made a 100 grain TTSX, but I'll be trying the 85 grain just the same.
