They shoot extremely well in my gun and wanted to try them out on deer. I was also wondering the same question about the TSX? Any help is appreciated!
You'll be a lot happier if you move up to the 140gr BT's if that's your bullet of choice. Any rifle with enough spin to stabilize the 120's will certainly stabilize the 140's and you will have a much higher BC and SD in the 140's.

I shot them in my 7mm Rem Magand 7mm STW for a long, long time but after some bullet failures (complete break up and no exit) I moved up to the 139gr interlock and interbond and finally the 154gr interbond where I really found the best accuracy/velocity combination with both rifles.
