I have shot the 150 grain Barnes TSX out to 600 yards, and it expanded in wet dirt at 600 yards, and seemed to shoot about as well as my old loads. I am thinking that 150 grains would be the best to keep the 600 yard velocity up.
But I now see two potential better candidtates: the TTSX, and the MRX. The MRX looks real attractive because it takes up less powder space (I have found that with the 150 TSX I am forced to use 180 load data because of length), but I do not know if they hold accuracy to long range.
Does anybody have any feedback before I launch a bunch of money into my local hillside?
If your not hunting those lead free zones (A south zone,D7,D8,D9,D10,D11,D13) I wouldn't change. California has appr 120 hunting zones and the A south zone /D10 is mostly private land and those lead free zone make up about 20% of the huntable land in Calif.
You might want to try 24hr campfire site alot of poster use TSX/TTSX and have had good luck.
