I am playing with the 265's right now. I havent made any kills yet but have recovered a couple out of stumps at 500 yds they mushroom good and have good weight retention. They group well with 86.5 grains of retumbo

They shoot just as well as any target bullet which is typical of all the ttsx bullets. They perform very well on game and the BC's are higher than listed which is also standard for the ttsx line. Unless you regularly shoot well beyond 1000 yards they will serve you well.
