Re: Experience with Hornady SST on deer?
Well, the only feed back Ive got for you is Ive hered and seen what they do to elk. 1 shot behind the shoulder and lodged on the other side against the leg bone just below the shoulder of the off leg. Dropped in its tracks. I wached my uncle shoot it(300 win mag, 180gr) at about 125-130 yds. at a down hill angle. I liked what the bullet looked like when we dug it out enough to start loading it in my 270WSM in 150gr. for Mule deer. And it shoots tight groups out of my factory Win. M-70 rifle. (best 5 shot group so far was .924, but 4 of the 5 grouped .541......I had a shooter indused flyer on #5). I wouldnt hesitate to use it on deer of any size or elk for that matter, and I plan to.
I cant find IB's anywhere or else Id try them too. I like the bonded bullet performance on game, but Im sure the SST's will do just fine.
