It was 1932 when Fred Barnes started selling bullets out of his basement in Bayfield, Colorado; he was unhappy with the performance of the bullets available at the time, so he created his own, which performed significantly better than the commercially available bullets. By 1939 Barnes Bullets became a large-scale manufacturer, and today they’ve been in business for more than 80 years. Over the decades they’ve continued to come up with new, innovative ways to enhance the capabilities of bullets, and these VOR-TX rounds are a fantastic example of their talents.
These 55 grain rounds are fairly lightweight for the .223 Remington, but that lighter weight means they can move faster while still hitting pretty hard. These are Barnes VOR-TX rounds with TSX bullets, which Barnes advertises as “the deadliest bullets in the world.” TSX bullets are capable of impressive accuracy and terminal performance, and one of their claims to fame is handloaded precision from a factory-loaded round. These bullets have fantastic weight retention and double their size during expansion. Their cutting petals are described as razor-sharp; there are many descriptives applied to this ammunition, but they all mean one thing: superior performance.
Each of these rounds bursts from the barrel of your rifle with a muzzle velocity of 3240 feet per second and tears into your target at a muzzle energy of 1282 foot-pounds. This ammunition is made for hunting varmints and game such as whitetail deer; its penetration qualities are touted as easily able to rip through bone. There are 20 rounds in this box of ammunition from Barnes; production takes place at their plant in Lindon, Utah. If you’re looking for a hunting round with practically unmatched performance capabilities and enormous power, you’ve found it. Barnes brings the heat, all you have to bring is the shot placement.
