Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheQuiet Hornady Custom - 300 Win Mag - 150gr SST Interlock I have used "Hornady Custom" ammo, components and reloading equipment for a few years and the company has become well trusted by me. It matters to me to shoot something made by an established stateside company. I buy mine from the retail store in Nashville. I shoot Hornady Custom - 300 Win Mag - 150gr SST Interlock through a 26" Fox-Ridge-T/C Encore barrel and if my Chrony is correct the bullets average 3345 fps in the first box I shot. The rounds and gun work well together and there are no accuracy problems at all. Thus far in the inaugural season for this rifle and Hornady Custom 300 Win Mag, 150gr SST Interlock (HPN 82014) we have taken 5 whitetail deer and 1 coyote. Sparing graphic details, the bullets expand quickly just as they are designed to do and on 3 of the 5 deer, transferred 100% of their energy to the animal. Do be warned they can be messy. This is not a round you want to land on shoulders/hams. Then again, this particular caliber is more suited for elk and is overkill on whitetail deer. Still, it should be expected that in 243, 308, 270, 30-06 and other calibers your results will vary somewhat with the energy available to those calibers and the hardware it is shot from. I use this same bullet (as a component - 7mm Interlock SST - not loaded ammo) in a handload in 7mm-08 and .280 Rem. and have seen it produce massive damage. As you would expect, the result from my short barreled 7mm-08 (22") is a little less punchy than the 26 inch .280 Rem. - but effective in both cases. The bullet expands quickly at all of my velocities. I only mention the handloads because they do use the same Hornady Interlock SST design. I believe Interlock SST bullets to be very effective and humane regardless of the caliber. When it gets down to it, the bullet is the business end of any cartridge. I just don't think you can go wrong with any Hornady Custom ammunition. Try a box and see for yourself. November 23, 2006
Rated 5 out of 5 by CBunny Best, most reasonably priced ammo on the market! I'm a whitetail deer hunter and I've been using Hornady Custom 180 grain SST 30-06 ammunition for years. For factory loaded ammo, it is very accurate and has plenty of knockdown power. I will not use any other factory loaded ammunition for whitetails. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomfosco Nothing Else I have been shooting Hornady Custom rifle ammo for at least 6 years now. It has never let me down and everytime I take my gun to the range to check it before hunting it is always in groups of quarter size with usually two shots touching at 100 yards. I hunt deer in GA and shoot 140 BTSP and have never had one go more that 20 yards. While sighting in my daughters 243 i used some less expensive ammo to get it close and on the paper and finished it off with the Hornady and there was more than an inch difference in 50 yards by using the Hornady. I will never shoot anything else in my rifles. November 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by LarryTheLegend 100% Satisfied I have both a 30-06 bolt action and a 30-06 semi automatic and I have not been able to pattern my shots to less than a 5" circle at 200 yards with either gun. I sighted in my bolt action with this new product and 2 shots were within 1/8" of each other and the third shot within an inch, all three patterned with a quarter $.25. I was afraid that these bullets may not have the knock down power I was used too, but, these proved to be just as good, with 100% more accuracy. I am 100% satisfied with this product so far.

Details:I am sold on BTSP at least in 270 140 grain and in the 300 Win-Mag 165. Best performance ever from both. For two years running now I have not been able to find the .300 165.....
A:Go to the Hornady website and submit this question to them and they can definitely send you in the right direction.
A:I shoot 165 BTNP balistic tip in 300-Weatherby. Very good round out to 400 yds easy.The 300 Win.Mag has been around for years and has a past reputation to uphold. Their are so many new guns and cartridges on the market today it is hard to keep up. With that said, it only makes sense to shoot a 180 gr. projectile to match energy to other calibers on the market. That's why you can't find your 165 BTSP's. Sales were low.I would suggest Hornady's Heavy Mag SST-Interlok or Interbond in the180gr. Or Rem. Premier Accutip in 180 gr. also. Both are available and produce some impressive ballistics.
