Yep the 160 is a hardish bullet but works great on 2 to 300kg sambar stags.
I do use a lot of Hornady projectile in my other rifles and really like the SSt's out wide. The 130' SSt's in my buddies .270 Win T3 shoot under 1 inch at 200 yards. I just havent spent enough time with the 7mm Rm and 162n SSt's etc.
They drop medium game very quickly!
A 180gn SST from my 300wsm showed
a recovered weight of 90gn at 236 yards after smashing a lower leg and penetrating 2ft to the off side ribs of a mature sambar. Perfect performance I would say with plenty of trauma along its path.
168 Bergers are showing potentail but I need to single feed.
I am having a custom .338 Edge being built as we chat and it wont be that far away. Now thats going to be differnt!
