I'm glad to see a bunch of guys with poor XTP results. I've been preaching that for 4-5 years and told I probably don't know what I'm talking about. They're great for groundhogs, but not much else. Some of them have taken large animals, but far more have not. There are far better handgun bullets out there-Xs, AFrames, old Nos. PTs.

I?ve been told the same, Doc. If a bullet doesn?t regularly perform as it is supposed to, I don?t want to use it - period.

I just have trouble understanding the emotional attachment to bullets that some exhibit.

Billa, this past season I finally bloodied my 460. Managed to take both a coyote and a whitetail doe using the 200 grain Barnes spitzer XPB at max velocity. Both of them ran an unusually long distance when hit, despite massive exit wounds. Shot placement wasn't an issue, either.

Considering how accurate they are, I'll continue to use them. They may not have that much DRT power on a broadside shot, but there's nothing running around here that's going to take a hit from one and survive.

CHANCE: THAT HAS ALSO BEEN MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BARNES 200 GRAINER, A GOOD KILLER BUT NOT NECESSARILY A QUICK KILLER, JUST NOT A LOT OF "SMACK" ON IMPACT. I GOT PLENTY OF THE CORBON 200gr XPB AMMO SO IF I USE MY 10 INCH PC S&W REVOLVER IT WILL BE WITH THE XPB's, BUT IF I WAS STARTING OVER, I WOULD LOOK AT THE BARNES 250gr FP/HP MONOLITHIC OR THE 265 SWIFT AFRAME.
