Default Barnes XLC's

I found some 100gr .257 XLCBT's cheap on clearance at Cabela's. I know they are not made anymore, but I've always wanted to try them and couldn't pass them up for $20 a box(50). I've heard they aren't as accurate as the TSX, but that they are just as devistating on game. I hope my T/C 26" bbl'd 25-06 likes these. At 3400fps(maybe) they would be devistating on mulies and speed goats. If anyone has any experience with the accuracy of the XLC's I would appreciate your findings. Also, was the velocity gain much more than the regular X's. Thanks, Brett

Maybe you can pushthe XLCa little faster but in my 25-06's they are not as accurate as the TSX . I have the Ruger #1 with 26" barrel and a 77 Mark II . I'm shooting the 90 gr in mine .
