    Sierra 125 SPT in .308

    Is anyone loading these and using them on Muntjac, Roe and Fallow?

    If so, can you tell me what pace you are pushing them at and what the terminal ballistics are like. Just trying to work out whether to go for these of the 150's.

    Thanks, NigelM

    I have 80 odd left. Couldn't push them slow enough. Messy. The 123gr Sako is a much tougher bullet and can still be messy. Go for the 150s. You're welcome to take a few of my 125s if you wish to experiment.

    Just looked at my records from 1992 & I was pushing these same bullets at 3000ft/sec driving them with Vit N140 (no pressure signs). Achieved 1" groups. I used them in my lightweight Mannlicher stutzen 308 on roe & muntjac. Chest shots at around 100 yards had good results. Bang - flop, no runners. No excessive meat loss. Nice low recoiling round that suited the wee kicker!
    I have some to try again sometime. Now I can check groups at 200yds as well as 100 it will be interesting to see if they hold grouping at longer range.

    Superb it is my go to 308 load i used to use it in a Tikka t3 i now only use it in a Sako TRG for high seat work where i have to shoot at longer range (335yds max) along a tree line and field border WHICH IS A PROBLEM AS THE NEXT PROPERTY ARE ANTI SHOOTING AND A BIG PROBLEM. So i use the 125 sierra with the max book load of vit 140 i think it is 48.6grs or 46.8grs PLEASE CHECK BEFORE USING THIS LOAD it is pretty much the same as my 270win

    Used them and one fragged in flight the rest did terrible damage to Roe. Gone back to 150's and 165's all sorted. Wouldn't use them again.
