Ive never shot a Berger bullet. Just never liked their description of the bullet shedding weight. . .
It would be nice if Hornady made a 140 gr Interbond
I'll research the Bergers . Thanks again. !
The SST is basically a smoothed out interlock but all that hold it together is a crimp ring which I've never seen one hold together enough to see if it works to stop the rapid expansion. The 140 Berger performs flat out!!
I really love bonded bullets and used to shoot hordes of copper bullets, took me two years of shooting Bergers before I trusted them enough to not load Barnes or Accubombs under them in the mag. Every cal I load for if available I have Accubond, TSX, TTSX, LRX, CEB, Berger, Matrix and a few Hornady. I pick the most accurate and start shooting deer, the best one gets loaded from then on out for elk. On game performance is what matters not the name on the box or hype!!!
