    Past several years I’ve gone “el cheapo”, using Federal “Nontypical” soft points.
    They’ve worked great, but last year I used the .257 Wby Mag with 100gr TTSX loads. And man oh man did they work well.
    Well, I’m gonna be using them again, but also added 130gr TRSX in .308 and picked up some 150gr TTSX in 7mm Rem Mag.

    I can’t wait for hunting season!!! :D

    Those TSX and now TTSX bullets have a stellar reputation. I’m afraid to try them, I might think I needed a bunch.

    You'd love it here, we have tons of deer. Only headache is you have to have the carcass checked for Chronic Wasting. This is actually the worst state in the union for hitting a deer while driving.

    Me? if I go, I just carry my Model 54 with iron sights. Yes, it's that easy.

    I have given some thought to trying these on my 270 Win.
    How are these grouping for you Joe?

    First off, welcome back stranger!
    :cheers:
    I haven’t ordered them for the .308 or 7 Mag yet, but they group MOA to Sub-MOA from my .257 Wby
    Took these 3 in one day last year in Texas.
    200 +/- yard head shot on a hog
    And then a buck at 50 yards quartering towards me in chest/shoulder and a doe almost head on in lower neck at about 40 yards.
    Buck skidded on its chest for about 25-30 yards leaving most of his blood on the ground in a straight line to where he was piled up and doe dropped in her tracks.
