Re: 150gr hornady sst in 270 win ?

I was going to use this bullet in my .270 for longer range shooting. I was using 57.5g RL-22 or h-4831sc, velocity was 2950-3000fps out of my 22" bbl, and accuracy was pretty good, around 3/4 moa for my rem 700. I sold the rifle and never got a chance to use them on anything, but I would think they would be a hammer for deer. They seemed to hit pretty hard even out at 800 yards. IF you find an accurate load, I wouldn't hesitate to use them.

I have not been impressed with the SST. I tried the 130's in my .270 and could not get them to group well. I used the 95 grain SST in my .243 to take a whitetail buck, but the bullet punched right through the chest, with no sign of expansion. I also shot a small hog, running. The bullet went through one hindquarter and lodged against the bone on the other side. The point of the bullet was bent, but not expanded at all...no excessive expansion like others have reported.

By the way, a 150-grain Partition chrono's in my .270 at around 2930 fps with 54.0 grains IMR 4350.

I used the 150 sst in a 270wsm at about 3000fps to kill an elk. The shot was about 75 yards broadside and behind the shoulder. The elk turned around at the shot and I shot again at which time he went down and died. Both shots were pass throughs.

papa45 ,

That's some odd expansion for sure w/a 130gr bullet.

I ran the numbers and the 140 accubond w/.496bc vs 150 sst w/.525bc.
Figuring the accubond at 100fps fasters it's basically a toss up out to 800yds.
I'll shoot these up then go to the expensive accubonds for big deer.
A friend gave me 300 speer 130gr spitzers and 200 speer 100gr hp's,so i've got a lot of shooting to do.

I've found the 150 sst to be the most accurate bullet in my 28" barreled Browning 1885 high wall, but only with H1000 @64gr. A very compressed load, not sure of the velocity but groups are consistantly .625" @100yds and .875" @200yds. The wound chanels look just like any other bullet I've ever tried, and I've tried just about everything.

Re: 150gr hornady sst in 270 win ?

Hey Mike,
I use the 140's in my 270. 56.4 grains of rl19 produces 3100 fps. This isn't max, it's where the rifle shoots best. .3" groups. Unfortunately, I have yet to use it on game.

I was thinking I could use this bullet interchangeably with the 140 accubond. Bc on those is .496. The sst's are half price. This would let me shoot an inexpensive bullet at targets, and a bonded bullet at game.

I have yet to test this theory. Honestly, I'll most likely try the sst on game first. Just food for thought. Maybe somebody else has tried this.

Re: 150gr hornady sst in 270 win ?

I use the SST in my 270 win I do shoot big game they are on of the best hunting projectiles I think. I use the 150 gr, the have rapid expansion at the start and hold up well as they slow down, wouldn't recommend any thing lither on big game/

:longest kill shot: 250 yds
:speed i'm running em at 2825fps with 52 gr of AR2209
:ave group size 2cm/under one moa. at 100yds

they will kill a rabbit and much larger game then deer ;)
