Re: Your info on the Nosler .308 BT

Jerry that is a interesting test procedure. I never thought of trying it like that.
I have a couple 5 gallon buckets with lids that scap on, I thought of filling them up and putting the lid on and shooting it from a 100yds?
Have you or anyone tried the Hornady Interbonds? What do you think of it?

Out of the SST and Nosler BT which will explode the least amount of the 2 on a Buck? Or least amount of damage?

Thanks
Troy

Re: Your info on the Nosler .308 BT

If I had to make an educated guess, I would go with the SST for slightly less expansion and less bruising on boiler room shots.

The best way is to slow down the impact vel. If impact vel is under 2400fps, expansion will be good and bruising will be reduced. Of course, not shooting them in an edible part doesn't hurt either.

Troy, Last years Oct. issue of Shooting Times tested all the 180gr bullets, and between the NBT and SST, they were virtually identical in retained weight etc. etc. I'd think the 150s would give the same kind of results, just a guess though, Jay

I have used the NP in 180 gr for 308 and 30-06 and they have worked fine for muleys and elk in AZ.
use what your confident with and make the first shot count.

Re: Your info on the Nosler .308 BT

I would go with the 165 sierra game king. It is real close to the 168 hpbt in ballistics in my match rifle and I have gotten deer with it before. It worked great. The only thing I don't like about ballistic tips is the meat damage. They do work though. Even on them big nasty hogs. HOgs don't care what they are being shot with. I always have preferred head shots but if you can't then get them in the ribs with either bullet and they are going down. Just watch out for the shoulder. I don't know how it happened but I saw one hit with a 45-70 at about 75 yards once in the shoulder. It did massive damage to the leg but didn't go in. Since my freind was standing there with his mouth open after he shot in amazement I had to kill it with my 308. Just don't miss the vitals.
