I'd like to here other's thoughts on that possibility, as maybe that is the key on this particular bullet. PS: That's a very purty lady ya got there for a hunting partner!!!
I have used the "light magnum" Hornady loads (before they had superformance they offered light magnum) and the results were the same.
Like I said 90yds was closest. never seen one "blow up"
Maybe guys are confusing the V-max, which also has a red balistic tip with the SST I don't know.
I have never seen one "blow up"....
If you look at a cross section of the SST and Interbond the copper jacket thickness is identical, only difference is the cannalure.....otherwise the jacket is the same thickness...
Use whatever you desire. I'm sticking with SST's
