Re: Why isn\'t this bullet?

With limited experience with this bullet, thus far I am very satisfied with the accuracy and performance on game. I wouldn`t hesitate to use the 140gr. 6.5 SST on up to elk size game with great confidence.

Re: Why isn\'t this bullet?

WB: I agree with you regarding the 6.5 140 SST. I have taken 2 whitetail bucks and 2 hogs in the last week with a 264 WM. Expansion, penetration, and accuracy were all excellent. Think I have found my bullet for the 264. Have also had good success with the 154 SST in a 7Mag and the 139SST in a 280. Jim

From what I've seen the .308 and 7mm Scirroccos do precisely what they're advertised to do and do it well. They are accurate and the .300 Wea and 7x57 AI deer kills were quick. Neck shot with the 7mm through the vertabre w/o deflection. 1.5" hole outbound. Lung shot at 250+/- yds w/ the .300, same story.
