Remember gents ---> in the lighter weight bullets,the boat tail takes up valuable powder capacity. I would love to see a 120 with a flat base. --- SAWMAN

I asked hornady about the 110 gmx expansion threshold as it looks tailor made for 300blk but the 2000fps seemed a bit high. They said the 110 has a 2000fps threshold as well. Doesn't make much sense to make a 125 for 308 then a 110 with a 300blk ogive profile but essentially make it useless for that cartridge.

The question to Hornady is what drunk monkey designed that bullet?

LOL

Probably the same one that engineered my truck when he worked at Nissan previously.

Yep pretty damn stupid or as we've often seen the tech people dont know shit. Im plenty happy with my SSTs so I wont be trying any. I will be getting some 125s for my 16" 308 though.
