Formulated to increase muzzle velocity by as much as 200 fps without extra chamber pressure, recoil, fouling, or ballistic deviation
Extra-heavy jacket and InterLock™
Tough, accurate premium ammunition that stands in a class by itself. The Hornady® Superformance® SST® bullet's custom propellant blend is unaffected by extreme cold or heat, and formulated to increase muzzle velocity by as much as 200 fps without extra chamber pressure, recoil, fouling, or ballistic deviation. Result: absolutely deadly downrange performance! 20 rounds per box.
Superformance® SST® - it IS rocket science! The SST bullet has earned the reputation as being a tough, accurate, flat shooting hunting bullet. Its polymer tip streamlines the profile to deliver high BC’s and initiate rapid expansion. The extra-heavy jacket and InterLock™ feature reduce the chance of core/jacket separation, while increasing penetration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by huntguy Great hunting bullet
One of the best hunting bullets in a factory load that you can buy. I use SST's in several calibers and have not had any problems, in my Whitetail calibers its a one shot kill and no run no tracking bullet, I love them.

I have hunted deer since I was 14 years old and am now 60. I hunt with my wife and 2 daughters and although I used the 338 Win mag for many years and still love the cartridge I stepped down to the 7-08 because of the area we now hunt and the 50 to 150 yd shots that are now more frequent. We have all bagged our deer with this ammo. One shot through the lungs or neck and they never go far. My wife and daughters all use the 7.62x 39 with the SST bullet and have never used a follow up shot as the kill is quick and the run short. Thankyou Hornady.

The SSTs are a polymer tipped soft pointed bullet, Not a hollow point. But as far as bullet expansion/knockdown power- these SSTs make hollow points look like FMJs. They are the hardest hitting, biggest exit hole making bullet i have ever shot.
This ammo features the SST bullet which has a polymer tip that initiates expansion quickly upon striking the target. Hollowpoint rifle bullets are typically found in match loads where ultimate accuracy is the only goal. The .270 is a hunting cartridge, and thus not normally loaded with hollow point projectiles. I shot a one inch group @100yds using a Browning A-Bolt and Superformance .270 ammo. It's good stuff!
