I've only shot a couple of deer with Triple Shocks and in both cases bullet performance was superb. See my new post in the Reloading forum.

You may have solved the mystery here. Hit a twig as big as a toothpick, and the bullet is going to become de-stabilized and tumble. I had a Nosler Partition do this once out of a 7 Mag - even found the small branch it clipped about 25 feet in front of the animal.

I would not jump the gun at one bullet failure. There are a ton of factors that go into it. It is not a given at every shot. It may have glanced off something on the way or when it struck the target and it prevented it from opening.

I have seen bullets do some pretty strange things that they shouldn't have.

Great post. I am not a Barnes fan. I couldn't get the XXX to stabalize in my .243 Sako which just happens to be the least fussy rifle I own. Now it seems, not only are they are spastic.....they don't work!!!....Same with the worthless Hornady SST's .....pure junk. These bullets are just plain spastic IMHO.I went back to the basic Nosler BT and the Sierra Game King and am a happy camper.....although the Noslers are not 100%. Regards, Rick.

The Barnes and the Partition are both Premium bullet but from differeny classes. The barnes is Primarily penetrator. The Partiion is primarily a expander although both normall do both jobe pretty well. On deer with a caliber of any decent size, a non premium bullet is really a better bet. Except for the Partition which always seems to work even on this skinned game.
