Re: Experience with Hornady SST on deer?

My brother shot a hog with one and it hit the spine. It completely destroyed the entire area. You could have put a softball through the hole.
Funny thing was it didn't kill him, it needed a second shot. 300 win mag at 250 yards.
We don't shoot them anymore.
Try the accubond for as good as SST accuracy and excellent performance.

It's a quality bullet and will serve well in your situation.

Re: Experience with Hornady SST on deer?

All I shoot is Hornady sst 117 grain bullets in my 257 Roberts. My farthest shot was on a mule deer doe, at about 375 yards, one shot and it went down not 30 yards from the hit. In my gun they are extremely accurate.

I've used the 150gr 270 cal SST to take deer or sheep from 100 out over 1000yds and have yet to be disappointed. Muzzle velocities were from 2700-3650fps with impact velocities anywhere from 2800 on down to below 1800fps, all bullets opened up and achieved adequate penetration.

What kind of 270, and load, gets 3650 fps with a 150gr?
A hot load for a 300WBY and 150's only gets you around 3500ish(+or-) and a 7mmWBY gets around 3300ish(+or-).
Did you neck nown a 7mmRUM to 277? Confused......but very intreagued........

SST's are not bonded bullets, Hornady's bonded bullet is called Interbond.

Wich is why I said ''maybe this is not a fair shake to the SST'' (comparing bonded to non bonded). Poor wording on my part I guess, but You wrapped the rest of the quote, you can see that I planned on swiching to IB's.(Innerbonds a.k.a. IB's) I scratched that plan and I swiched to Accubonds now and couldnt be happier. The performance of the SST kinda soured me on Hornady bullets for this caliber(270wsm). I have hered of better results with SST's in bigger caliber(.338) at a wide variety of ranges. But have no personal data on them in that cal. I will try Hornady bullets again in DIFFERENT caliber. Bigger caliber(.308+ vs. .277) and slower, maybe on my 30-06, or my .338win mag.
