The TSX isn’t just an accurate bullet because it’s incapable of placing lead fouling on a barrel’s rifling. It’s an even cleaner-shooting bullet thanks to its Accu-Groove, which is a series of channels machined into its shank that limit the amount of contact the TSX can make with the bore. The TSX’s sweeping profile ends in a precision heel radius, which gives propellant gasses an exceptionally uniform surface to thrust against. And because the TSX is made of pure copper – and hasn’t got a jacket that could have contained a concentricity flaw – its in-flight stability is essentially perfect.
The 150 grain .30 cal TSX achieves a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.184 once it clears the muzzle at a rate of 2,220 fps. Aim to 150 yards and expect the bullet to rise no higher than 2.67” above the muzzle line. The bullet overcomes frontal air resistance efficiently enough to retain 1,000 ft lbs of kinetic energy at 125 yards. At 150 yards you’re still looking at nearly 900 ft lbs of energy, which can easily pin down any buck.
The TSX is a solid copper hollow point. It is rugged, and accordingly retains almost 100% of its weight no matter the velocity at which it strikes its target. While it penetrates to an effective depth inside the quarry, the TSX produces four separate cutting petals. Each one hacks a devastating wound channel into the quarry while distributing crippling energy outward.
