125 gr. Fiocchi sst.

Post by BOB567 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 11:06 pm

Got out and sighted in my pistol today. Running a Daniel Defense 10" upper. Started at 25 yrds. 5 shot 1 hole group. Moved it to 50, 10 shot group you could cover with a quarter. Plus the brass is reloadable. Sgammo had some in stock the other day. I ordered 15 boxes.

the 125 sst is a fantastic bullet in the blackout world.

i cant recall anyone off the top of my head who's had much trouble getting it to shoot reasonably well in this caliber. Im glad you found a load your gun seems to like.


in general, my experience with the SST, the eld-m (amax) and the vmax bullets in multiple calibers are all pretty damn stellar. those 3 product lines are why the majority of the boxes on my reloading shelf are red.


we've got 4 different barrels in the family that the 165 sst run amazing in. My brother just finally let me do a load workup for his 30-06 700 BDL and the *WORST* group at 100 yds with that bullet could have been covered with a quarter. and we didnt even tinker with OAL games or anything. that gun's 20 years old.

This is my go too cartridge when eradicating wild pigs!
It has no issues with producing humane kills with pigs well over 200 lbs - if the correct shot placement is applied.

Rreread this today and thought, i sound like an arrogant a$$. Rest assured, these groups were shot from a Caldwell lead sled not free standing, off hand. I do believe this is still some of the beat super sonic ammo I can buy.

The SST has produced more kills over the years than any other bullet in this caliber. Probably due to availability, ease of producing accurate ammo and price. The 110 Barnes has it's fans but the 125 SST has always been there, no lime light, nothing sexy, it just plain kills. Firedavis, a member no longer active, killed so many Texas hogs with this bullet it would take a warehouse to hold them all.
