As PawPaw points out, the bullet was "full caliber diameter" when it left the barrel.
What is the final diameter of the bullet?
It sounds to me like it performed exactly like every anecdote I've ever heard regarding the TTSX bullets, meaning perfectly. I've never heard of a failure to expand (at speed), I've never heard of the bullet coming apart (except a "petal" or two on heavy bone) and they always
penetrate like crazy.
Of course, you're apparently not even sure that's the correct bullet so I think it's a little silly to pass judgement based on no information.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
