150gr hornady sst in 270 win ?

My Lee reloading book shows the 150gr sst going 3010fps w/58.5gr of re22 in a 270win.
The bc is .525.
Does anybody use this bullet on big deer ?
What's your expierence w/it close and far ?

Also has anybody been able to get 150's going that fast ?

I bought an ADL 270 w/a hs precision stock a couple of months ago and am going to start loading for it soon.
Wanting to use re22 for 25-06 & 270 .
Thanks -Mike

I shot a blacktail at 100 yd. with the 130 gr. sst out of a .270 going 3150 alot of blood shot and bullet made it in about 6" and came apart, what was left of the bullet weighed 65gr.I will never use them on deer again

I got them to 2990 with MagPro, but the higher the velocity got the more erratic the groups. Then again, this rifle will not shoot anything REAL good.

Best of luck!

I've shot or seen several medium sized whitetails shot with the 130 gr. SST's.In each case ,penetration was adequate at best and tissue damage was best described as severe.I was less than impressed with their performance,but can't argue with the results-DRT.That being said I would be more comfortable with a little tougher constructed bullet on heavier animals.Almost forgot,all were shot with 270Win,velocity 3050fps.

I only shot paper. I would not hesitate to shoot anything up to and including elk with the 150 SSTs. Remember, folks are reporting lots of damaged tissue with 130s not the 150s.

Re: 150gr hornady sst in 270 win ?

I have loaded the 150's for 270 and they performed very well. I loaded them at 2900 and they were grouping under 1".
These were for a friends rem 700 and he took a Doe with them at 360 yrds and the exit hole was the size of my fist. I have not yet recovered a bullet to check retention, but terminal damage was extensive. I have shot Elk with the 150 SST in my 300 and they performed well, but I had to back off Max loads to gain accuracy by quite a bit. The nosler BTip performed much better for me at high velocities.
