The TTSX needs more velocity to perform well, but the benefit is that it seems more consistent in its performance to me, and causes less unnecessary meat damage at those higher velocities.I personally didn't think the tipped triple shock did as much tissue damage as the trophy bonded tips did . I've shot several deer with both
Yep I agree. I think a 180 grainer out of a .30 caliber magnum would fling it fast enough to open up good. I think the trophy bonded tips are a good compromise between deep penetration and tissue damage. They're both excellent choices for heavy boned game.The TTSX needs more velocity to perform well, but the benefit is that it seems more consistent in its performance to me, and causes less unnecessary meat damage at those higher velocities.
I’m glad to hear that they are working so well for those that have used them. Federal have since released their Terminal Ascent projectile. A bullet built exactly the same but for those wanting a long range bullet with very high BC. I am working with them now in 30 cal. They make a 200 gr pill that is very efficient but you need a faster twist barrel then what I have as 50% of shots at 100 yds have slightly oval holes in the target. I’m driving them at 3000 in my Weatherby, maybe at 200 yds they may be stabilizing, haven’t checked yet, but the 175 grs are working fine.I've used them out of a 30.06 in 180 grain offering for elk, whitetail, black bear, wild boar, and I consider them to be the cat's pajamas. I used one to break both shoulders on a spike elk at about 200 yards. I've recovered a couple that went through whitetail length wise and they look like the pictures from a Federal brochure. Perfect mushrooms with long perfect thanks. Truly beautiful lol .
There's probably bullets that are just about as good (a frame comes to mind) but trophy bonded tips are my favorite
