Hornady .338 Match 250grn SST

Anyone have any experience with the 250 grain Hornady SST Match grade bullet in .338 cal?

It seems to have a very high BC and should shoot flat out past 1000 yds. I would be keen to hear of its performance on game animals at long range.

Re: Hornady .338 Match 250grn SST

Topshot, i can't tell you i've shot game with the 250's. but i did shoot a box of them last summer, part of which was some terminal bullet testing that i did at 300 and 700 yards. i too looked at them because of their high BC and also liked the large hollow point opening. i would be highly surprised if you have any problem getting them to open at long range. at 700 using water filled milk jugs and magazines they tore large holes. Hornady jackets are a bit on the soft side(peanut butter) and this really lets them fragment. i couldn't get them to shoot quite as good as the Sierras and i already had a bunch of them so i stayed with the Sierras.

Hornady is supposed to be releasing a 300 gr A-max this summer, that will be one heck of a hunting bullet.
