2019 Editors’ Choice Award – Black Hills 110-gr, Tipped TSX.300 Blackout Ammunition

In what may be the best available choice for short-range personal defense with this cartridge, Black Hills Ammunition has developed a new and devastating .300 Blackout round. Using a Barnes 110-gr. TTSX (Tipped TSX) bullet, and fired from a 6.5-inch barreled SIG Sauer MCX, this load created a temporary wound cavity diameter of 4.625 inches and a temporary wound cavity length of 9.375 inches—most-definitely sufficient to punch the ticket of a bad guy.

The Barnes TTSX develops 1,955 f.p.s. muzzle velocity, measured at a 12-foot distance from the muzzle to the block of ballistic gelatin. It expands immediately upon impact and retains nearly 100% of its weight, penetrating to desired depths of 18-plus inches. It also performs well through tough barriers, such as car doors and windshields, making it very suitable for law enforcement use. Used in a hunting capacity, it provides superior performance against everything from whitetails to monster hogs. Weight retention of the TTSX bullet 107.4 grains with an expanded diameter of 0.664 inches.
