I found these two tipped triple shocks in the grass behind my 100 yard target. From my bench to 100 is slightly downhill so these bullets went through two 1/2" sheets of plywood and then impacted the ground behind the target. I found them about 40 yards past the 100 board so I'm assuming they skipped or tumbled out there. Load was 66.5 gr of imr 4350, CCI 200, Winchester brass. Both bullets weighed 163.5 on my Lyman scale. Expansion at widest point showed about .650ImageImage

I use the 168 TTSX IN MY 300 RUM. Great bullets, from 5 feet to 500 yards the story has always stayed the same, full penetration and obvious expansion!

I never used the TTSX on game, but I have certainly shot a fair number of moose and elk with the TSX launched from my 300 WSM. The bullet always dropped the animal right smartly. Those two bullets show why Barnes hit the gold mine with the TSX and then with the TTSX.

Just think what that bullet would do to flesh while spinning through at 200,000 RPM !
