Hornady® Superformance® SST® Bullets
Very good ammo
Pulling off 600 yrd shots with factory ammo! Not bad at all!

I have downed 3 elk since I started using Hornady SST Ammo. I shoot a Ruger M77 7mm Rem Mag. The ammo is 162 grain. I only started using the ammo 4 years ago. The first elk was a 225 yrd shot, one round it took 3 steps then dropped. The next elk was a 460 yrd shot across a drainage. I heard the bullet strike the elk and it looked to the sky and dropped where it was hit, also one round. The last elk I took was a 340 yrd shot, it staggered when it was hit and then stood there in shock for about 10 seconds and then fell where it stood, another one round hit. This ammo is devastating, the terminal ballistics puts a shock that completely stops the animal in it's tracks. BPS needs to stock this ammo regularly, especially in my caliber and weight. I recommend zeroing your weapon at 200 yrds, I did and like I stated this ammo is deadly accurate. The year I didn't get an elk was because I didn't see an elk.

First, I love Hornady ammo, so you won't hear any bashing here. I shoot it in everything I own. A couple years ago, I sighted my son's Rossi 243 in with the Custom 95 grain as recommended by Hornady tech support for my young son. Those things we unreal! I could have driven nails with them and my son took his first 3 deer with them.
So fast forward to now and a time where that particular round has been discontinued. I tried the Superformance SST in the same grain, and I will tell you that I was frustrated. I shot 20 rounds from a vise and couldn't group any better than a basketball. I even shot off the target twice.
I called tech support and was told to try the 100gr Am. Whitetail Interlocks. The speed makes all the difference.
Again, I'm not downing the ammo; I'm just trying to be helpful for someone else that may have trouble in the future. Some "high speed" ammo simply doesn't do very well in some rifles, even if it is extremely close to what you shot before.

Everything i wanted but BPS doesnt have my caliber
Was highly recommended to hornady, felt it would be right for my new 243, never shot a rifle, these were not expensive but were not cheap. So i felt good buying them, took ten shots till my first bulls eye. Not the gun, probably user fualt. I feel confident in this ammo for all my hunting needs, it sure makes a good bang. My daughter will sure enjoy it when she is old enough to use it. I rate this a three cause BPS doesnt have it in stock.
