Thread: Hornady Superformance .243 75gn SST

  1. #1

    Hornady Superformance .243 75gn SST

    As some of you have may already read, Hornady will be producing the above load in .243 as of 2015. They should be a very good fox/roe crossover load for those of us who like lighter ballistic tipped bullets.

    PH

    Edit: Possibly available now!

    Great rounds....95's shoot sub inch at 100yds in my Howa Varmint, I reload 165's in my Sako 308win with similar accuracy too... all we need is a .224 variant and i'll be laughing...

    SST= Super Shock Tip... controlled expansion not ballistic perfect for deer.

    The 95 grain sst is one of the best .243 deer bullets around, yes they can do a bit of meat damage, but boy do they put deer on the ground, FAST.

    The .243 95 gr SST's didn't group quite as well as 80 gr soft points out of my rifle. Got a few box's of the 75gr to try, will report back after some testing on paper then fox and deer.

    Well there very good on paper, 3/4" groups which will do me very nicely, so re zeroed 1/2" high at 110 yds. Hope to get out a few times in the next week so will post my findings.

    The marketing people can re brand it all they like

    it IS a ballistic tip and is NOT the same as an Interlock with a nipple
    even Hornady's own literature calls it rapid expansion

    Bullets - Hornady Manufacturing, Inc

    SST® (Super Shock Tip)

    Streamlined for ultra-flat trajectories our SST contains a polymer tip for rapid expansion


    InterLock® (RN, SP, SP-RP, FP, HP)

    The aerodynamic secant ogive of the Hornady InterLock® delivers flat trajectories and great accuracy. It's tapered jacket allows for deep penetration and controlled expansion while the InterLock ring locks core and jacket together.


    I do my mincing at home
