    Here is a couple of bullets that we recovered from my muskox. They are 165 gr. GMX. I was going to use Barnes but my rifle will shoot the 165 gmx sst and interbond to the Sam point of impact as the have the same ballistic coff. and sec. density. IMG_20190914_100129.jpeg

    Looks like they worked great! My wife shoots the 139 gr. GMX in her 280 Remington. Whenever we’ve been able to find one that’s exactly how they have looked. She has had great success with them in 4 trips to Namibia

    GMX seems to be a good bullet, I have several buddies that swear by them

    Looks good to me. Do you have any idea of the impact velocity?

    I have been using Barnes TSX.
    I would use the GMX and/or Nosler monolithic if they shot well in my rifle.
    I just started with the Barnes and have had no reason to experiment.
