My dad swears by the SST he has always used the 150 grain in his bolt action .308 but I can only find them in the 165 grain so that might be a option. Have they performed well up close and medium range?Use 165 sst in my tikka roughtec .308. Work great on deer and antelope
I got some of that in 130 gr last year for my .270. It was all I could find. It shoots great. Had a pretty big exit hole on a small buck at about 40 yards. I would recommend.Norma 150gr 308 is available on their website for $16.99 now. Free shipping over $150. Hard to beat that. Deer die easily with well placed shots. Any 150-165 bullet will work fine. Don’t overthink it.
You have the worlds greatest user name.165 Sierra Gameking HPBT over cfe 223 is what my subalpine 308 is loaded with. Not good BC but I’m packing a 4.5lb rifle im
Not shooting past 350 yrds anyway. Rifle shots then about an inch at 100 at 350 about 4”. Plenty good enough for such. Light weight rig.
My wife shot a buck a few days ago with these bullets. It was about 100 yards and the buck dressed out around 150lbs. The bullet went in through a rib right in the vital V and hit the opposite side shoulder. No exit. It took out the lungs but not very impressive at all. If it would have hit a heavier bone, I'm not sure it would have took out both lungs. There was a really good blood trail but the deer still ran about 100 yards. I might just shoot all these and use the brass for reloads.I got some of that in 130 gr last year for my .270. It was all I could find. It shoots great.
