Re: Hornady SST
I have shot a LOT of the 130's through my standard .270 Win. mostly FOR hogs. They do a decent job, but as mentioned, you need to have the impact velocity under the 3000fps range. That said, the 140's or 150's might be better for your rifle. THey will also give you a better downrange performance as well.
They are much like the BT as "06" say's and will come apart, but on hogs up to around 200 pounds the 130's have done well for me so far. Just try to keep the shots to the base of the head/neck junction, or slip it in behind the shoulder on a quartering away shot and your good to go. With all the wonderful brush and cactus you got down south, your hogs have more grissle up front than the ones we have up around the Madisonville area.
I haven't used any from the .270 on deer but would imagine they should work equally as well. I have used the 154gr from the 7 mag on a couple and they did wonderful.
