Re: Barnes TTSX, performance vs accuracy
I took a doe antelope last year at 610y with a 150gr .284 TTSX, expanded just fine. I think some guys blame the bullet for not expanding when it was more then likely poor shot placement. With that being said there also seems to be two different schools of thought on shot placement. One calls for a bullet that will expand very very easily and the other calls for a bullet that stays together more. Not meaning to derail your thread but I think that which ever type of shot you intend to take plays a big role in which bullet is going to do what you want done.
I like to break bones when I shoot an animal. They don't run near as far with both front legs knocked out from under them.
