I'm still trying to figure out what bullet to use myself.
You're asking a lot there!
The Sirocco's have performed well for me at both short and long range, but up close 200- while I haven't had any blow up I've had some flatten out to quarter size.
Hornady SST and Interbonds have done well for me at both for many years. I have less experience with the SST and Sirocco, but so far I've been pleased with them.
Note, I have yet to shoot anything thin skinned at long range with the SST, but they performed well on big hogs at 600yds plus.
The one bobcat I shot at 1,000yds plus and recovered with the 180gr Sirocco made about a nickle sized exit wound (300 Rum 3250fps).
