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.

Simple adds less drop and accuracy to a good bullet

Rated 5 out of 5 by GatorFanForever Great round!
As far as my Remington 700 in .270 is concerned, this 140 grain SST round is "Dead in its tracks" accuate on Whitetails and hogs. A great factory load at a reasonable price!

The 139 grain SST in 7mm Rem Mag grouped like a dream out to 200 yds. I shot deer #1 at 180 yards right behind the shoulder and found no blood or hair but found the deer about 60 yards away. Deer #2 was at a little over 200 yards and was shot directly through the shoulder, found a few drops of blood the size of a pencil eraser and I found the deer about 100 yards away. I recovered both projectiles with total core/jacket separation with only 6-8 inches of penetration. I shot a 300lb boar at 160 yards with a center mass shot and it stumbled and ran off. When i went to recover it 4 hrs later i found it very much alive and angry,did not recover that bullet. I'll still shoot Hornady but definately not 139 grain SST in 7mm.

Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome Ammo
Used 150 grain SST this year in my Remington Model 700 30-06. Awesome load and pleased with results, very accurate and harvested a deer @ 145 yards and a mature black bear where they stood, no tracking required…

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!
