    Hornady GMX bullets

    Has anyone used these bullets yet, particularly on UK deer species? Am interested to hear of any terminal expansion findings.
    Would be in the 150 - 180 grain range in a 308/306 calibre.

    Many thanks

    i,m using the gmx superperformance in 139 grain 7mm08 and i,ve only shot roe and fox with them yet,meat damage does,nt seem anymore than the federal fusion i was using,seem to be very consistent and very accurate in my rifle,i,ll be sticking with them as long there consistent.

    If they are anything like the Barnes they should be fine. I would advise going with a lighter bullet than usual to keep the velocity up. They should still penetrate deeply as there is no core to shed. My experience with 7mm, .308 and 22/250 is that meat damage is negligible even when impact velocity is very high (3600fps ish). I am looking at using the 100 grain barnes in a 6.5 but havent got any to try yet

    I've been using them for a while now - 30cal, 155gr.

    Great consistency and expand better than barnes.
