    7.62x39mm TSX

    Does anyone know if the 7.62x39mm TSX displays reliable expansion in soft tissue or ballistic gel?

    I seriously doubt Barnes would market this bullet if it did not perform well. I have shot the TSX rounds and like them, but in the 7.62x39 I think I will wait for a "tipped" TSX. Barnes bullets are VERY expensive but do the job VERY well. If you are hunting why skimp on a great bullet? :2cents:

    Have you asked Barnes if they have gel tests for the 7.62x39 TSX?

    I'd guess that the 7.62x39 TSX wound profile would be similar to (but perhaps not quite as good as) the 110gr 6.8 TSX below:

    Re: 7.62x39mm TSX

    Funny to read this, when yesterday I was working with one of my flight medics who used to work in L.A. as a paramedic. He and I are both gun lovers, so guess what we like to talk about...

    Anyways, while he worked in L.A. he saw many GSWs of all calibres. He said the worst GSWs were always caused by AKs(7.62x39). He was telling me that the amount of damage they caused was always amazing. Basically he was confirming what I have read. And, these were usually just standard cartridges, you know, all the bulk stuff that comes cheap.

    I have not shot any of the expensive ammo available to x39, but my guess is that you put a quality expanding projectile into the cartridge and you will have a very formidable weapon/hunting rifle.

    Is that the bullet in the CorBon DPX?


    edit to add: I think it is. The CorBon page describes the bullet as a "Barnes pure copper Triple Shock X bullet" .

    So for those of us who don't load our own, we can still get something almost as good by just buying the CorBon DPX (at two bucks a shot, it sure isn't cheap, though).

    I don't know if it is the same bullet in DPX as in TSX, but the DPX is a Barnes copper bullet. Trainer John Farnam swears by them and has hunted with them in his XCR. I have some on hand and can't wait to try them in my XCR, which I am still waiting on, perhaps next week it will arrive?

    Is this just because that was the most common rifle round, or is he comparing to things like 5.56? One would expect a lot more damage from a 7.62x39 than most any pistol round I'd think.



    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.
