Winchester® Supreme® Ballistic Silvertip™ Rifle Ammo
Excellent predator round
I use Winchester ballistic silver tips in .223 for hunting predators at night, and I find them to be clean shooting, and accurate rounds. Expansion is great with plenty of knock down force and internal damage. That equals in quicker kills and less blood tracking, which hunting at night is preffered. Damge to the fur is minimal due to most of the energy is used up inside and not out. I will continue to depend on this round until Winchester comes out with something better.

Winchester 300 WSM BST
The ammunition is great. Every deer shot with this ammo has dropped in its tracks fro 95 to 260 yards. The ammo has been shot from a Browning Auto Loader. Each shell has fed well , fired when required , with no hangups and has ejected when it should . I continue to rely on winchester products.

Best ammo for my 300 WSM/308 WIn
I've used this ammo for 3 years now, and have taken over 15 deer with it. Usually they drop where I hit them all the way out to 100-125 yards. Accuracy is amazing out of my Browning A-Bolt 300 WSM. My brother also uses it out of his .308 to the same outstanding satisfaction. Everything we hit drops! Give it a try, you'll be amazed how much the performance is over standard grade ammunition.

Why keep looking?
This is the most accurate rifle ammunition I have ever found for my Tikka T3 300 WSM. (180 grain) I shoot 3 hole groups on paper that can be covered with a nickel and sometimes have 2 of the holes touching at 100 yards. Groups that are just outside of a quarter at 200 yards, but that has more to do with the shooter. I have taken multiple animals with this ammo including deer, javelina and wild hogs at distances over 200 yards. The deer either drop or make it about one good leap before crumbling and that was with him lined up directly towards me with his head slightly turned... I put through the top of his right side taking out his shoulder and did severe damage to everything on that side of his body as it passed down and towards the middle of the cavity. The farthest I had to track one to date was about 15 yards. I have dropped Javelina in their tracks from 200 yards off of a shaky rest and in wind. Multiple Javelina. It made me look good in front of my wife's best friend's husband as it was the first time we had ever been hunting together. I have complete confidence in this round matched with my rifle and that is a huge boost at distance. I don't have to worry about the round or the rifle, just a smooth trigger squeeze and keeping my crosshairs when I want the thing to go. He is from Georgia and typically doesn't shoot over about 80 yards. I hunt West Texas in an area where 200 is the norm and that is where I have it zeroed with the 180 grain Ballistic Silver Tips. I will occasionally buy a box of more expensive or exotic ammunition just to play around, but no matter price or reputation, I am yet to find anything my rifle likes better than this ammo. I stock up when I can find it in 180 grain.
