Re: Hornady match bullets/big game
I have used a Hdy 168 HPBT in my 30-06 to take 9 deer, 3 3 elk, and 17 VERY large hogs. I have never had a kill that required more than one shot. If you have to use a match bullet, I would use Hornady over a Sierra. With the exception of 5 or 6 hogs and the 3 elk, the bullet has always penetrated completely. Every shot has always expanded reliably and done it's job. Though, on two of the hogs that I recovered the bullet from, I saw a core/jacket sep. Even then so, it was still a clean kill. As for any other Hdy A-Max, I cannot say as this is the only one I have ever used to hunt. IMHO, it's an excellent hunting bullet.
