I shoot Hornady SST out of a 30-06. Been doing so for years and they have done well for me. Although spent the past year searching for anything in stock and finally found a few boxes. Attempted to reload but still searching for large rifle primers. I have all other components.

Gave some of the 165 super performance to a buddy who started deer hunting this year. Shot a doe last year with it and she dropped like a ton of bricks. I was impressed.

Shooting 150 gr eldx out of a 7mm-08. Velocity should be around 2700 fps according to reloading manual and some math calculations but don’t have a chrono to confirm. Did an excellent job on my mule deer though and lines up perfect with my Nikon monarchs bdc reticle.

I’m shooting speer gold dot 140s in my 6.5x55. They shoot great but I’m not sure I will have the opportunity to rifle hunt with them this year

Now where in the world did you find those little beauties?! I haven't seen a box in years & all my Swedes have adored them!
I'm reduced to 129gn Hornady BTSP in my current 6.5x66. It really shots well with the Berger 140 VLDs, but they have universally failed to impress me on game.

165 Partitions in my '06
150 Accubonds in .308
220 Speer HotCor in .358
77 TMKs in .223
120 BTSP Sierras in .257 (unless I can get these 100gn NPTs to shoot better
310 cast in .44 &
510 cast in .45-70

Variety is the spice of life! 😁
