Re: Hornady SST on whitetail
I've shot the 140s in a 6.5-284 at 2950ish, never had a problem with them. Most of my shots were broadside and damage was sufficient but not "total carnage". Did hit one in the spine and even that one I wouldn't consider explosive. I will say that most of the deer I shot with the SST were dead or down right there, not much tracking needed.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
