    The 225 Grain TTSX has a BC of .514 and can be driven to much higher velocities. The 285 does not have enough of a BC advantage to peak my interest. the difference is only .071 and the 225 TTSX can be driven several hundred FPS faster

    The 185 ttsx is .435 or so and my lapua can drive it near 3600 fps. Great flat shooter under 800 yards.

    ok thanks. i thought it might be a contender for a good long range bullet that is actually a hunting bullet. obviously there are still better choices
