I want massive internal damage. Thanks.
The TSX at 300 yards will kill like any bullet when placed in the vitals. I don't use them anymore but when I did they worked best at 300 or less. When we missed any bone going in I was less than impressed. They do penetrate and if you will take a shot at the azz of a fleeing bull this bullet might be a good choice.
you said "massive internal damage". That describes the way a Berger works, especially at 300 and less. My choice for a 300 wby would be the 215 or 230 Berger on elk. They flat put them down. Don't worry about the freebore of your rifle either. I shot 1000's of 210 and 230's now through a factory 30-378. In fact the bull to the left was from a 210 in a 30-378 Accumark. All the factory Weatherby's I loaded for shot groups of 3/4" or less at 100 yards with Bergers. The custom barreled rifles were all 1/2 moa to 1000 yards.
Don't take my word for it on the Berger terminal performance. Just read this thread. See if this is what you are after.
Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid
There are 19 big game kills including many elk with impact data an wound channel pics all from last season with my 300 win and 215 Bergers @ 3035 fps MV. That should be pretty close to what you will get from a 24" 300 Wby.
