    Has anyone tried these bullets in a 300 mag? I have always shot 200 gr bullets in my 300 ICL...usually Nosler Partitions and lately the Accubonds. I've had good results with both but the world is changing and copper seems to be the choice over lead, at least out here in California.

    I just ordered a box and I see they're not calling them TTSX, but LRX. Are they the same?

    I realize they're going to be pretty long and I'll be seating them deep due to my Winchester's magazine restriction. Any thoughts?
