Another thing that plays a huge part in ANY bullets terminal performance, is the rate of twist. In any given caliber, take the same bullet, and change the twist rate, and it changes how much, or how little the bullets " upset " on impact. Shoot a 150 grain bullet in a 12 twist, 308, and shoot it in a 10 twist, and the upset will be different. Another thing is how many riflings are in the barrel! Some are 6, some are 5, and even 4.
My first 7 STW Sendero has always shot, and still does shoot 140 CT, and it has never failed me. I'm a little concerned right now, as I just ordered some more of them, as I just ran out. Will these bullets act differently? I hope not! The ones I just ran out of, were bought in 1997, when the CT's first came out, and that was before they started putting them in factory ammo. ( QC ) . Time will tell! take care my friend!

A guy from Nosler asked the question one day, " At what time, during the death of the deer, did the bullet fail"?
I'm like you though, if the Nosler won't work, the Barnes will! Count on it!
If your worried about exploshions, fragmentation and all the other words that sound like that .......just send a Partition down the tube and call it a day

    I have several moose and deer kills with 160 AB out of my STW and all were one shot kills. I have been using the AB's in my .270WSM with great results also. I love them for hunting.

    Let's banish him.
    No talk of the evil 338's here in the brotherhood

    Your stw will shoot flatter if you send the proper pill downrange.
    Heck my stw with 140 ab's at 3400 fps will shoot flatter than my 300rum with 225 hdy hpbt's at 3000 fps.
    And it'll still have over 1000 foot pounds at 800 yards.

    Man, you must be walking in " High Cotton" right about now! I know I would be! But I wouldn't think twice about what rifle I would be taking, it's spelled STW! That animal my friend is what this rifle cartridge was made for. Don't get me wrong, I DO like the 338 LM, but I know the STW will fill that bill! Congrats on the pick! Man, that is really awesome!

    Gentlemen!!!!! Please remember, my STW is till being built and I am not sure I will get it and have it ready by my hunt. I know my mcwhorter is ready to go!!!
    I know that the brothers love their STWs. And I hope the guy is good enought to give me a sweet rifle like y'all have. I am just so excited I wanted to share!! If I can get it sighted and a load built , it will be with me on those NM. Mountains.

    Brothers must forgive transgressions in the height of excitement!!!!!! Right
