Re: hornady sst bullets
They are a great example of how guns/bullets differ. First let me say that my guns are commercial Mauser sporters, and when I get one load that works I stop looking. To me this is anything around 1.25" or better. My 308 and 30-06 both shoot 165 Partitions to this standard. The 308 shoots great.75" or so with the same load using the 165SSTs, but much bigger groups with the Ballistic tips. The 30-06 shoots the same groups, even almost to the same POI with BTs, but not as well with the SSTs. They shoot very well in both my and my friend's 7x57. I'd try them if I were you, but I think the 165 is about perfect if for deer/pigs. capt david [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
"It's not how hard you hit 'em, it's where you hit 'em." The 30-06 will, with the right bullet, successfully take any game animal in North America up to 300yds. Get closer!
