    I took this buck at 300 yards facing me with the 180 TSX from my 300 Win Mag. The bullet entered the side of the neck entered the chest area and took out 5 ribbs, continueing full length of the Deer and shattering the hip before exiting

    Good shooting!

    That type of penetration and bullet performance should solidify confidence in the load.
