I hear about this bullet being a pretty good bullet in a 308, 2 deer and hog, no exit, deer shot right behind the shoulder thru the ribs, hog in neck, all stumbled off and went way further than should when hammering there. The old relliable 150 grain sierra's will go right thru, blood trail there and usually folded up. Bullet selection rr is it just me be a unlucky shooter.

Yep. I load the 150 Interlocks to over 2900 fps and they smuck deer. They are extremely accurate, also, in my RA. I have a 6x ss mounted on it. I will never load another SST. Some say the newer ones are better, but no thanks. Poor performance loaded to only 2650 on white tailed does.


You did not "seen" anything, you "saw" it.
A "creek" has water in it, a "crick" is what you get in your neck.

Well we ran the 150 SST a little hotter than that so speed is not the issue, i have punted on them and will run thru what's loaded just shooting targets, I do load the 165 sst in one of my 308 norma magnums, and that's a weapon of mass destruction to the rib cage of anything.

Sounds like you recovered them all. How far did they go after the shot?

I`ve had good luck with them, rib shots, 170grn. 8mm SST, 8x57.
