    Looks like you had a great safari.Lots of nice animal. Great BW and nice mass on the Nyala. I have used the Barnes TTSX and really like the penetration. You'll find lots of fans of them here on AH. My taxidermist was over earlier this year. They killed 31 animals, all 1 shot kills using Accubonds. Lots of good bullets to choose from. Bruce

    Enjoying the talk about the 300 WM I just got a Ruger 1 in 300 WM but have never shot Barnes so if you have any more info I will be using it for Elk and Mule Deer I hope.

    I have killed several deer and elk with the TTSX. The only thing that I don't like is the BC. If you are doing any long range shooting then they may not be optimal. Anywhere under 500 yards they will work gReat. You can use them with confidence. Bruce

    I have a nikon scope on it and the attachment is from a zero of 200 yards so I am going to pick up a box and see if I can zero it at 200 yd. I don't see me shooting over 300 yds. I can shoot a small rock at 300 with the SST? That is what I picked when I got the rifle. image.jpg
