Your opinions on the ttsx 120grains for Deer?
I use the 120gr nosler ballistic tip because the ttsx does not expand as well at longer distance
(400 to 600yards).
I have made shots over 600 yards and the performance was very good with the NBT at those
velocities (MV = 3120 ft/sec) and the most accurate load in my 7/08s have been 49.5 grs
of H414 for 3010 ft/sec below 50o and 3151 ft/sec at 90 to 100o+.
The ttsx requires more velocity than the 7/08 can produce at longer distance.
Just my experiences.
