Hornady Projectiles for Performance
Hornady, 270cal, 6.8mm
The Hornady® SST® (Super Shock Tip) is engineered to generate massive shock on impact while expanding fast and consistently, even at high speeds.
It's a perfect bullet for whitetails, as well as most North American game animals from antelope to moose and similar-sized African plains game, because it's flat firing and incredibly accurate. The SST® creates a massive wound channel that can be devastating.
When the hard polymer tip collides with the lead core, it acts as a wedge, causing rapid but controlled expansion. The tapered point, higher bearing surface, and more aerodynamic profile, combined with a boattail base, make the SST® more efficient with less drag and more stability, thanks to Hornady's pioneering secant ogive design.
During the loading process, a mid-body cannelure keeps the core and jacket together while providing a consistent, accurate crimp. This Hornady-exclusive design physically seals the core and jacket together during expansion to protect bullet integrity, assuring maximum weight retention and boosting the likelihood of complete pass-throughs.
