I like 130gr. BTSP bullets in my .270 they have a perfect one shot kill record this year especially on coyotes.

I am really liking the Hornady SST also. I used the 130 gn in .270 this past year for WhiteTail season. It has proven very accurate and totally reliable on big hogs as well. I also load the 150gn SST in the .308 and it results in one shot kills . Never recoverd a bullet, as they always pass clean through. I have had excellent resuls with the Nosler Partition in my .243 in the past.

I like the Hornady SST 150gr. in my 300wm. I have had great results with these on deer and a moose this past year. They thought 150gr. wasn't good for moose but I showed them how good they were when they went throught and broke both shoulders at 425 yards.

I use the 150 GR Speer BTSP in my .30-06 for mule deer and antelope. I use the 150 Barnes "X" for elk and moose. Both loads shoot to same point of impact, so no need to readjust scope when switching from deer to elk load!
