Just in case you didn't notice AllenJ I've since changed my mind on the length of the barrel to 18" instead, is that still too short for Barnes X?
It really depends on what velocity your getting in your rifle. I would guess that using 150's or maybe even 168's you'd be fine for close encounters, the bullet should be going fast enough to cause expansion. I would not use 180 grain or heavier with Barnes bullets though. Just my opinion from what I've seen in the field using them.
