    Barnes TTSX 100/120 grain in 6.5mm

    Looking for any first hand experience with either 100g or 120 grain Barnes TTSX in either 6.5 x 55 or for that matter in 6.5 x 284 on our native deer species.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks guys. Much as I thought, they seem to need to be driven quickly to ensure best on game performance. But they should have better on game performance on our native deer, than the TSX, which I have seen not open up on red hinds when used in 150grain 308 guise.

    My 120 and 140 grain TSX are fine!

    Redmist has used TSX in 6.5mm on reds with very successful results, not sure of the bullet weight though. I am thinking of trying the 100g TTSX in my 6.5x47 as the sierra 120g seem to cause more meat damage than I like.
    Where are folk getting their heads from these days?
