    The 200 TTSX is now the LRX, but whatever name you use for it....I love it! My current golden load for my 300 RUM uses the 200g LRX. It's shooting sub MOA groups at 3207 avg muzzle velocity.

    Also, I can confirm that the listed BC is a tad low. With my load I shoot a little over a full minute high (based on ballistics calculations using Barnes' published BC in both JBM and Shooter on my Android) at most distances out to 760 yds.
