Default Performance of Barnes TMZs

I set up a steel bullet trap at my shooting range. I used 5/16 inch plate on about a 30 deg. angle. At 50 yds., using a 290gr TMZ pushed by 120 grs. of FFF - 777 the bullets completely flattened out and stayed intact. Every bullet I found looked just alike, because of the angle they hit the steel they looked like an eagle. I don't see how you could ask for any better performance. There also was a large bulge on the back side of the plate. They load too hard, in my Omega, with the yellow sabots, so I use a sub base and an HPH 24 sabot. I get about 5/8 inch groups, at 50 yds., with this combination.
