My 338 LM should be done soon and I bought a box of 300 gr Bergers before they came out with the 285 LRX. After I shoot these bergers up, I am going to try out the LRX myself.
Do you mean the 285 grain TSX or the 280 grain LRX?

I'm 18

Biggest fail of 2014 so far...

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Well, I ended up eating Non-resident tag soup on my deer. But, I did get to defend myself from a violent and agressive coyote at 222 yards. All I had available was the STW with the 168 grain LRX. Entry mid body on right side, exit about the size of a softball on the left side. Definition of DRT!!!!!
    I did learn a valuable lesson that day, do NOT shoot a gun with a muzzle brake without hearing protection!!!!!!!
    Next on my plate is a cow elk. We shall see how the LRX does on one of those!
