    Hornady 308 168g SST Superformance

    Does anyone know who sells the Hornady 168g SST Superformance, 308 in Scotland. Has anyone got any experience of how good the ammunition is.

    They were the first factory round that I managed to keyhole fairly regularly with my R93. It did not like the 150g SST superprformance anything like as much. I only managed to buy one box at the shooting show and have not seen them since. I shot one deer with them. A fallow doe heart shot at 90 odd metres ran 25 metres.

    I cannot tell you where to buy it in Scotland, but I have only used that bullet (in 150g) for the last year (since I bought my Jaeger Haenel 308), and itīs a great bullet for long distances. I have killed foxes, hogs and deer up to 300 metres with one shot, very accurate and very effective (a lot of internal damage in the animals). BUT: I also shot 2 hogs at close distance (50-70 meters), hit them and never found them. I donīt know if that was a coincidence. Anyway, I am very happy with it, itīs my favorite bullet for stalking now.

    I have no clue about availability in Scotland (or anywhere in the UK for that matter), but I have used the 165 SST (Nosler makes a 165 and 168 BT, but the SST is 165 only) loaded to about 2700 FPS from the 308 and had good results on a few whitetail deer -- boiler room (lungs and top of heart) shots under 100 yds, bang flop, impressive but NOT excessive wound channel - minimal meat damage). Initial expansion is very fast, but tends to be well controlled and behaved at 308 velocities. If your rifle favors them I imagine the round would serve you very well across a pretty wide variety of game weights and ranges.

    The ones I had were 165grain. I assumed the OP's 168 was a typo. I should have clarified it...
