As for shooting anything dangerous or charging, I'm pretty sure I want something more like the 200Accubond or 200TTSX.

Good points. I've had the 208 Amax on backorder for months.

The BC of the 200 Accubond and 200 TTSX are 0.588 and 0.546. Those are both high enough to reach at least 800 yards with a 300 RUM. And the 200 TTSX would be about as good as it gets on very large or dangerous game where you might need to shoot head on in a charge or butt first as they run away wounded.

On a grizzly I want a bullet that will reach the vitals very time whether I have to stick it up his nose or into his ass. The TTSX will do that very time. The Berger or Amax I don't know what I might get on a desperation shot. Thru the ribs into the lungs on a quartering away shot like you'd shoot a bear with a bow, the Berger and Amax would probably kill a bear DRT.

    The Barnes 200ttsx looks like it could have alot better BC if they would tweak on the design just a little. It's plenty long but the overall profile must not be very high BC minded.

    They don't shoot well in my rifle. I surmised it was because of the long jump to reach the rifleing. I'm not interested in having my rifles magazine area lengthened
