Bullet ID

I pulled these from a box of 30-06 reloads, that I got a few years back in a box, from an auction. I'm pretty sure they are Winchester silver tips...but any other opinions are welcome. The bullets are 150 grn.

They do appear to be old Winchester Silvertips. Opinions varied on them as I remember and since my role models back then did not like them, I never used any.

Looks like Winchester "Super speed Silvertips" they were good for expansion at long range.

The silver tip were actually a T6 aluminum and lead the way for polymer tips.

They were also the bullet of choice for the 257 Roberts when used on Antelope.
