The buck picture I posted in the other .338 Fed thread was shot in MT and with a 160 gr TTSX. I shot that deer at under 100 yards he never took a step straight down. To be honest I thought I missed him even though I couldn't see him running with the other deer through the trees a friend Ed saw the whole thing. Deer went down at the shot and was dead before we could walk up to him to take care of him. I could not be happier with the performance of the TTSX 160 gr bullet the caliber or the Ruger rifle. I don't believe any other cartridge combo can do any better of job at hand and in it's range. If I were still living in Calif. and had put this hunting rig together I don't think it would be any less of a good hunting outfit and would be using it there. There are people here in this forum that have the idea that the .338 Federal is under powered and can not do the job, they are closed minded.
