Okay so after reading everything you guys have to say about the Barnes tez and the tmz I think I've decided to go with one of the two. What is the difference between them? And will I need to buy an adaptor or something to put on my ramrod to get these bullets to seat properly? I plan on shooting 100 grains of powder and I was thinking of using a slug in the 270-290 range. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! I'm heading to cabelas soon!

you will need that bullet adapter for them so you don't smash that tip. Also what are you hunting? For deer 250 is a good choice,, for elk 290 is perfect. I like shooting the 290 for both deer and elk.. The tez loads easier vs the tmz..

Unless you have a couple of days to get out to the range and to do some shooting with them I would stick with whatever you are shooting right now. You have 9 days before the season starts which is a little late to be switching bullets.

Well after calling everyplace in the valley pretty much and no one has them I think I'll stick with what I've got. I think I was shooting the hornady sst but I'll have to check with my dad.

the difference between the 2 is. The TMZ has a boat tail and the T-EZ is a flat base (non-boat tail) otherwise its the same bullet
