    I can get close to 3100 fps with my 340 Bee. Will these do for elk? I have quite a few in my cabinet. Any input?

    I liken the SST to the nosler ballistic tip. Great for thin skinned game. I use barnes TTSX and accubonds for elk. I would go "bonded" on elk and save the SST for lighter game.

    the SST is a InterLock for deep penetration

    the InterBond is Bonded design for deep penetration and 90%+ weight retention.

    the GMX is like the barns...
