How does the Accubond perform compared to the Barnes TSX? Penetration, temporary cavity, expansion, etc.

Thanks

The TSX penetrates more and is a tougher bullet so it retains most of its weight.

I am not ready to make any conclusions until we complete windshield testing. FWIW, in bare gel, the 110 gr Accubond has good weight retention and is penetrating to depths similar to the 110 gr TSX. Also, don't forget that the Remington 115 gr Core-Lokt bonded JSP is a superb projectile.

Wow! Nice gel shots! That 85gr TSX really opens up. It stands to reason that a lighter, faster bullet of that construction will penetrate less. But the disruption in the wound channel seems greater than with the 110's. It looks like the 85's wound channel has a very shallow neck and the greatest disruption until eight or nine inches. It looks like most of the energy has been delievered after that.
