.280 caliber Remington 150 Grain Barnes TTSX (lead free)~ The .280 Remington, also known as the 7mm-06 Remington and 7mm Express Remington, was introduced in 1957 for several Remington models. The .280 is based on the .30-06 necked down to accept 7 mm bullets, with the neck moved forward .050 in (1.27mm). The neck was deliberately moved forward to prevent chambering in a .270 Winchester rifle, as firing a .280 round in a .270 rifle could cause the projectile to get stuck in the barrel or rupture the barrel due to excessive pressure. The .280 Remington is capable of generating slightly higher velocities with a given bullet weight than the .270 Winchester, and also able to use heavier bullets due to the larger .284″ diameter. .284″ bullets also have higher ballistic coefficients at the top of the weight spectrum than .277″ bullets. The greater energy and higher ballistic coefficient of heavier .284″ bullets give the .280 Remington a slight ballistic advantage over the .270 Winchester.

100-PERCENT COPPER BODY
Since its introduction in 2003, Barnes’ TSX Bullet has earned a reputation as “the perfect hunting bullet.” Now, Barnes has improved on perfection by adding a streamlined polymer tip. The new Tipped TSX features the same 100-percent copper body with multiple rings cut into the shank. It delivers the same gnat’s-eyelash accuracy and “dead right there” performance—but with an added polymer tip that boosts BC and improves long-range ballistics. The tip and a re-engineered nose cavity provide even faster expansion. Complete penetration, virtually 100-percent weight retention and four razor-sharp cutting petals that double bullet diameter means the new Tipped TSX creates more internal damage than any competing bullet. Instant expansion and perfect penetration ensures cleaner, quicker kills.
