Hornady 270 Cal 277 140 gr SST Projectiles Overview
Hornady 270 Cal 277 140 gr SST Projectiles;
The Hornady® SST® (Super Shock Tip) is designed to deliver a tremendous shock
on impact while expanding quickly and reliably, particularly at higher velocities.
Flat shooting and deadly accurate, it’s an ideal bullet for whitetails,
as well as most North American game animals from antelope to moose
and also similar-sized African plains game. The SST® creates a devastatingly large wound channel.
Upon impact, the hard polymer tip drives into the lead core like a wedge,
initiating lightning-fast, yet also controlled expansion.
SECANT OGIVE, BOATTAIL PROFILE
Incorporating the pioneering Hornady secant ogive design, the tapered point,
increased bearing surface as well as more aerodynamic profile, combined with a boattail base,
makes the SST® more efficient with less drag and also greater stability.
