Not much luck with seventy-eight views but only the one reply on the Ballistic Forum...so I've posted it here:
Please feedback and comments on experiences of these bullets ONLY on UK deer, and elsewhere wild boar and elk.
I'm trying to rationalise my bullets and thinking about going from Hornady 140gn Interlock to the Sako 156gn Hammerhead (NOT Super Hammerhead) or the 160gn Nosler Partition as a "one size fits all"...plus that "magic" 10 grams weight minimum for some European Game Laws.
I'm using a standard Parker Hale 24" barrel 270 Winchester. Not a 270 WSM or a 270 Weatherby.
Is there any advantage of Nosler Partition 160gn vs 156gn Sako Hammerhead vs 150gn "Other" (such as Sierra, Hornady, Speer)?
And is the Sako Hammerhead really "bonded" and how does it perform if anyone has any feedback. I'm also heard that for European hunting on boar, deer, elk that the Nosler Partition "blows up" and loses the front end on boar...so is actually not very good?
I'm also hearing some real horror stories about the Sako Hammerhead!
Any feedback on these bullets only please greatly appreciated!
I'm lloking for something good for heavy game but also with no excessive velocity no excessive meat damage on light muntjac or roe shot at say twenty or thirty yards in woodland.
I also welcome feedback on the TWO Hornady 150 grain bullets the spire point and the round point regarding how they perform.
