    i have an elk hunt this fall and i'm planning on using Barnes TTSX bullets. 2 reasons. the first is i can get them. the second is i can get them. OK the second reason is it's bear country and i like the thought of a solid copper if it's up close and personal with a Griz. i got them through Barnes and i can get more if i need them.

    I agree with Dave, The ttsx may not have the best BC but are right in there. But they do shoot very well and no bullet made anywhere has better performance on game.

    Dave, You are right about the grizz. Saw a big one up there today while limiting out on rainbows. I will probably cow hunt up there in December after the bears go in. Good luck on your hunt.
