It looks like you did your homework. Will be curious to see how the bullet does in a few tests out farther than the recommended.

I'm interested to see how the bullets work for you. I've been reading alot of good stuff about the ttsx. This is why these forums are great, we can all learn from these forums. Just bought my 257 last year and can't wait to get a load worked up and do some shooting.

As soon as I get out and shoot , I'll let you know. I can't wait to see what the drop is with the barnes tipped at 600 yards. I hear alot of people say the BC is higher than Barnes has printed .
