Its a great bullet, not the highest BC but it just plain and simple kills fast when you do your part, up close and at longer distances. I've also shot a couple of deer up close also and the bullet will go through the shoulder and exit on the other side and turn the lungs to jello, and everyone likes jello.Anyone got reviews of the SST as a long range bullet. The 150 grain .30 out of Superformance 308 is at 1800 FPS and groups nicely out of my Tikka. I might hunt with it.
On the 30-06 the 165gr SST is a better option, or even the 180gr. On larger cartridges heavier SST's work best. Example:Killed a whitetail last year 30-06 150gr sst superformance factory at 80 yards. Through the scapula and exploded inside chest cavity. No exit. Killed the deer but to me they are a more fragile bullet than other options.
