I have not used their factory loaded rounds but I am currently shooting the 150 ttsx that I hand loaded. So far seems good to go out of a 22 inch bbl 308. Shot a bobcat last weekend and the bullet opened up just fine. Also dropped a few hogs with shots to the vitals. No tracking required on 5 animals so far but I haven't shot any deer with it yet so....

I shoot 150 grain Barnes with my Remmy 700, but just at targets so far. Groups really well. As far as performance on game, I expect it would not be any different than my 7mm-08. Got two bucks before Thanksgiving using 120 grain factory loads. Shot each one at the base of the neck, both DRT. I was surprised at the low loss of meat. Hit bone but the TTSX went straight through without all the bloodshot meat that happens with lead bullets that blow up on impact with solid bone.

I've used it on hogs and deer. So far, so good. I get tight groups out of my Remington 700 police. Like "Ah Hunter 78" said, they were all DRT.

I picked up a box for a new Sako 308 last night to try.

I shot a box last year in 168 I think. Did well and put Dow a real good deer with a marginal shot on my part.

I'm currently shooting the 168 gr tsx bullet out of my .308. Shot 2 deer so far and both were DRT.

Literally watched this buck disappear straight down into the wheat this morning at about 200 yards.

Haven't shot the 150 but I have really liked the performance of the 168s.
