Thread: Hornady SST's

    Hornady SST's

    Im just wondering what other peoples experiences are with these bullets?

    I use them in my .270 in 130gr and have found on the larger fallow bucks I'm shooting (55+Kg) that they are not exiting. They are very fast at 3200fps and with the plastic tip i was initially worried about excess meat damage.

    My 6.5x55 140s travel at 2,660fps and never had a problem exiting, although yet to shot anything bigger than a 2yr old Fallow buck

    Will let you know how I get on next week with 162 SST out of a 7RM

    In .308 I find the 150gr always exit on chest shots.

    .243Win 95gr at 3200fps do not (though do on neck shots.)

    Perform well for me in both cases.

    Just bought a box of 6.5mm 123gr SST's yesterday. I'm interested to see how they work. They apparently have the same profile as the 123gr A-Max.

    Will load owe some up today.

    In 130 .270 they are very accurate in my rifle but I stick with the interlock soft points.
    not convinced about the damage when hitting bone first

    found them a bit messy compared to the soft point interlock

    What calibre are you sending them through? I have bought some 123's to try through my 6.5x47L, once its built. I have previously fired .308W 165sst and .243W in 95sst in the past and they are a lovely accurate bullet. I also have some new 150sst to try for the .308W

    260rem. Should be running at 2850-2900 fps. Bought them because I couldn't get 120gr BT's.
