Re: 140gn SST vs. OLD 140 A-Max -- Jerry Teo.....

I have my 7 ultra loaded with the 154 sst's @ 3350 fps. I am going to use them for whitetails in November down in Arkansas. These rounds flat out shoot in my sendero. Do you think that they will put 'em down at close range.

Re: 140gn SST vs. OLD 140 A-Max -- Jerry Teo.....

I would suggest against trying to break too many bones at close range. Any conventional bullet is not going to be too happy hitting bone above 3000fps. Through the boiler room, look out. Big whomp.

Same goes for hard quartering shots or Texas heart shots. At that type of impact velocity, not my first choice. Will give massive expansion and this can reduce penetration.

I'm a boiler room hunter so have never had an issue with these bullets.
