    My sako 75 came with some 180 grain Winchester 'silver tips' which give a 'one hole group'!
    It's a seriously penetrating round though designed for Elk/Bears!
    I've shot muntjac with them with very little meat damage, but i suspect the round may still be in flight somewhere!

    am a firm believer in if its not broken do not fix it will stick with the sst 165 .

    I have been using the 180gr from RWS with good results recently. Have a look at their website RWS HMK The productfinder of this site is nice interactive tool.
