Hornady - SST - 150 Grain 30-06 Ammo - 20 Rounds
The .30-06 Springfield was born of the US .30 Army – the .30-03 Springfield – case with the adoption of the German designed “spitzer”, or pointed bullet. This makes all the old .30-03 chambers capable of firing the aerodynamically superior ’06 and provides superior performance over longer range. The .30-06 served in the US military for almost half a century and is still regarded as one of the best performing rifle rounds ever in service. Long-range target shooters with military style rifles and big game hunters apparently could not agree more.
Hornady bullet designs are among the most advanced and relied upon projectiles on the market, which is fitting considering the company’s roots: “H” began in the 1940’s making bullet jackets for the military out of spent rimfire brass. In the 1960’s they began making complete cartridges of their own and to this day, their components are prized by reloaders and smaller munitions makers for the superior quality.
The 150 grain Super Shock Tip bullet by Hornady exits the muzzle at 3080 feet per second and can hit with 3159 foot pounds. Designed to deliver every ounce of energy into the target, this polymer tipped bullet is designed for hitting game at exceptional ranges without requiring a lot of after shot tracking.
