Rated 5 out of 5 by HornadyFan Better than any For years I shot Federal Premium exclusively. After using Hornady custom for one season, I'll never shoot anything else. Hornady has 100% control of every component which assures me of total quality control. It's accurate(consistantly), clean, and gives consistant firing from round to round. Don't get me wrong, Federal is good ammo but they buy components and assemble from tier suppliers. I'll continue to use Federal shot shells beacuase I have found none better. I have converted quite a few of my shooting friends and all attest to my claim that Hornady's overall quality is secong to none. September 25, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by basshound Love this stuff I use the 150 gr. SST in .30-06. VERY good ammo; the only down side is if you hit bone, the round seems to expand just a little too much, massive tissue damage etc. but that is to be expected from a 30 caliber bullet built for expansion. Overall, if you do your part it will do what it is supposed to do - and they don't run very far. September 7, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremehunter12 The Most powerful load I ever used The Hornady SST 30-06 Springfield in the 180 Grain load is a shell that I will never stop using. The expansion is remarkable. Very low noise and very low recoil. I never had to use more than one shot to drop anything. cheap for the performance. Other shells that are like this are Federals Nosler Ballistic Tip and Winchesters Supreme Ballistic Tip. At 50 yards with the SST the entry hole in a piece of wood was round as a standard pencil. Exit hole on the two by four was round as a nickel. I found the bullet in a tree 70 yards behind it. Very great bullet. February 7, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by yotaman Very Fine!!!! I harvested the firt deer with the Hornady 140 gr. SST in .270 Win. yesterday evening from around 140 yards...the load performed to unbelief!! At the shot, it was if the gun hadn't even went off before all four of the does feet were skyward! The entry hole was of course the size of the bullet, but the exit hole was somewhere in the area of 5 inches wide!! I would tell you that it left a great blood trail, but like I said...legs skyward! They don't group as well as the Federal Fusions out of my gun, but different guns handle different loads better...My buddy gets about 3/4 in. groups at 100.....I wouldn't hesitate telling anyone to get some.....All I can say is FINE! VERY FINE! November 18, 2007

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.
