ohiohunter,

I mentioned the Sierra 7mm 160-gr HPBT being their toughest 7mm bullet because so many uninformed people believe that all hollowpoint bullets are fragile and "made to fragment".

Sierra's .277 140-gr HPBT is their toughest .270 bullet, according to Carroll Pilant, Media Relations Manager at Sierra. Sierra does not make a 150-gr .277 HPBT, but does make a 150-gr in SPBT.

I shoot the Hornady 150-gr SPBT and Remington 150-gr RN in my .270s.

you are going to have a tough time trying to convince me that the sierra 140 gr. HPBT Gameking bullet is tougher than a 130 gr. SPT Prohunter. -keith

I am not trying to convince you. I just conveyed what the expert at Sierra said. Call him.
