Has anyone tried the 110 grain Barnes TTSX in their 308? Barnes are claiming 3600fps or thereabouts and a quick poke at a ballistic calculator reveals that with a 250 yard zero this would be 1 inch high at 100, 2 inches high at 150 and just short of 3 inches low at 300.
Now, I know that knowing the trajectory is better value for money than "flat shooting" wonder ammo but on the other hand range estimation can sometimes go a bit wrong. A friend and I took a look at a deer the other night that we both though was about 120 yards until I went to shoot it and looked through the scope and it didn't feel quite right, so I didn't shoot. I went back the next day and was down in the mouth as when i looked at it in daylight I was even more positive it was 120ish yards. The laser was of the view that it was 284 yards! Oops.
Any idea how the 110 grain TTSX might perform on deer?
This is mostly academic as I have a good 150 grain load with Hornady spire points and am working towards a load with 150 grain partitions as well but it is interesting to investigate these things with a view to future loads.
