Do you find the TSX has better terminal performance on game than the TTSX? I used the TTSX last year for the 1st time in my 35 Whelen loaded with 180 gr TTSX and shot 7 whitetails and a few hogs and terminal performance was great. Nothing over 200 yards, 6 of the 7 deer were bang flops and so were the hogs. 1 of the deer ran about 60 yards or so from a lung shot, other than that it hammers em hard. Yet to recover a bullet, complete pass throughs and everything liquified in between. I never tried the TSX.

They are the exact same in my opinion. The only reason i prefer the tsx is the tips dont deform

I have to agree with Mike. I use the TSX in every rifle that I shoot. I loaded the 140 gr TTSX in a 7 RUM and shot a Oryx with it at 338 yds and it didnt expand anymore than the TSX does on game. The BC gain of the TTSX is not even that much over the TSX.
