I use 100grn TTSX in my 260. It loves them and they knock animals very well. They certainly smash bones and cause very high shock levels. Good out 300 meters you want them to be doing 2000 FPS to open at extended ranges.  No lead fragments in the meat either.

Only really shoot out to 100m max where I hunt(Clements mill rd)so speed shouldn’t be a problem.

I shoot 130g out of a 30-06 and 62g out of a 223 and love them for deer.  I am thinking of changing to 50g for the 223.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.
