Re: Hornady SST's for deer in 308???
I have shot a few deer with this bullet in my 308 from 100 to 500 yards. All shots have been in the shoulder or chest. The 165 performs perfectly at all ranges. Have had no deer move more than a few yards. The 165 SST's seem to hold together better than the Ballistic tips at closer ranges. I use 45.3 grains of Varget with Lapua Brass and Fed match primers. I seat them in the cannelure. Velocity is 2800 fps. Rifle is. Reminton mil spec with 11.25 twist, r-5.
