Out of 300WSM. All close shots offered so far. 1 boar about 250lbs 105yards broadside shoulder lodged in opposite side skin,shed one pedal but great perfect mushroom, great wound channel and DRT.
100lb sow running at 105 yards also, high double lungs, about 1.75" exit also DRT.
Bull nilgai about 400lb very close 30yards came into watering hole, broadside low shoulder, pass through. I think it may have shed all pedals cause the entrance was devastating, but rear of bullet continued through, also DRT.
I was worried about expansion on mid-size game like deer but after seeing what it did to that sow I think it will be a great all around bullet, where I hunt anyway.

When launching any solid copper TSX bullet from Barnes at 3000+ fps, expansion is pretty good inside 200-300 yards. Plus the animals you are shooting these on a pretty tough also, so that helps with expansion.
