Thread: Good bullet other than 150gr for 308?

  1. #1

    Good bullet other than 150gr for 308?

    I have been using my 308 for roe the last few weeks due to changing my 243 and waiting on firearms variation. I have been using 150gr Hornady SST'S through the 308, good bullet for Sika, bowles them over!! but had a few runners on Roe, I don't think their is enough body mass with Roe for the bullet to expand properly.

    Any recomendations for a good head for 308 for Roe?

    I use Nosler 150gr BTs in .308 on everything. Driven at circa 2700 fps and have no problems.

    If I were you I'd give them another chance, sst's are normally very soft meaning expand quickly.
    Otherwise try a standard soft point. What speed are they traveling at out of your 308?

    Shame it's illegal on deer so not much good for the original posters question.

    If you like polymer tipped bullets then you won't go wrong with Nosler 125gr Ballistic Tips if you want a soft point then the Sako 123gr game head it's a good bullet for a thirty cal.
