Default Nosler Ballistic tips in .308

I am sorry to read that some of you are having bad performance out of the Hornady lever-lution bullets. I was wondering if I should be switching over to Hornady's SSTs and away from my standard load of Nosler BTs. Cabellas had 165gr .308 BTs onsale for 15.10 per box so I went ahead and picked up 3 boxes. I really went back and forth wondering if it was a good time to try the SSTs they also were onsale for 22.50 per box of 100. I haven't loaded the SSTs before but they do get good reviews. I would prefer to hunt Deer with the same bullet I have been shooting all year. I have only Elk hunted twice and Nosler Partitions were in the chamber on those hunts. Has anyone done a comparison test beween Hornady SSTs to Nosler BTs?

Karl

I just got the bullet back yesterday from my Kentucky 8 pnt. I killed it with my CZ 550 FS in 9.3x62 shooting 285gr Prvi Partizan cartridges (very inexpensive!). The rifle shoots them under MOA. The largest width of the mushroomed bullet was just a whisker over 1" from a .366 caliber bullet. Although not a picture perfect mushroom the bullet is in one piece and was found in the offside shoulder after penetrating 2 ft + of deer (shot was quartering away)
