Sable – 338 Win 210 gr. TSX
I just wanted to drop you a note and say thanks for building the best bullet on the market. I used your .338 caliber, 210gr. Barnes-X bullet on a Hippo/Nile Crocodile/Sable safari to Mozambique in the latter part of August of 2012. All of my veteran safari friends said the .338 Win Mag was “too light” to use on Hippo & Croc, especially with the 210gr bullet. Well, they were wrong. One shot on the Hippo bull resulted in a complete pass-thru on a side brain shot. In one ear, out the other. The PH was extremely impressed with the performance of the Barnes bullet and even said that most .375 H&H rounds do not exit with that shot. He was equally impressed with the performance on a 14’-7” croc at 100yds. A perfect side brain shot resulted in the croc never moving anything other than his tail! Again, perfect performance. The Sable was a broadside 130yd heart shot with complete pass-thru. The bull only made it 30 yds. Perfect performance as expected. Keep up the fantastic work.
Mike with his Hartebeest
One of the first questions that my PH asked me was what kind of bullet I was shooting. When I told him both rifles were shooting Barnes TSX bullets, he grinned and said that we were going to get along just fine. I could not have asked for better performance from a bullet. I used both rifles and they both worked great. I recovered one 180 gr bullet that traveled through about 36 inches of Blue Wildebeest. It weighs 179.9 grains.
Your bullets have a lot of respect in South Africa. All the PH’s at the camp I was at said that they wished all the hunters coming would use Barnes bullets.
