Re: Barns tipped tsx bullets
I shoot the TTSX in 168 gr. I originally got them for elk when I went to Colorado. I shot a mature cow at 325 yards through both front shoulders. She took 2 steps and dropped and the bullet passed completely through her.
As for whitetails, I've now shot 3 with it, 1 buck and 2 does. I killed all 3 with 1 shot, all 3 shots where through the lungs / rib cage, nothing through any major bones. The one doe was pretty blown up (lots of blood shot trauma throughout the front half of the deer), the buck and the other doe were both fine, no more bullet damage than I've seen with my typical 150 gr corelokts.
