Not all of them, confusing I know. The 6.5 127grn, 7mm 145 & 168grn, 30 cal 175 & 200grn are all LRX there is also a 338 but I don't remember the weight. The LRX offers a different Ogive & boat tail profile than the TTSX.

Barnes instituted those changes to provide a boost in BC.

That was what I was thinking, I just couldn't remember if the 265 was a LRX or TTSX.... thanks Mike.
