First year hunting with the AR15 platform. Did some research on which bullets to choose and finally came to purchase SSA 70gr TSX bullets. All the articles I read pointed to the tsx bullets as being the best for penetration & weight retention.
All I can say is WOW & DRT!! These bullets rock. We shot both bucks directly into the shoulder area, on purpose and the results speak for themselves.
The 9 pointer weighed right at 200#'s while the 6 pointer weighed 140#'s. Both were shot at 120 yards! Both bucks collapsed right on the spot!
