HORNADY 6.5MM (.264) 123gr BULLET SST 100/BX
When Hornady engineers set out to design a bullet that combined deadly terminal performance with a high ballistic coefficient, they found the answer to both in the SST design. They started with the proven design of our InterLock bullet, and added a sharp, pointed tip to cut through the air for faster, flatter shooting. They combined a one-piece core and strengthened the jacket in critical areas to make a bullet that delivers controlled expansion, superior weight retention, and massive shock for a clean, quick kill. This is not loaded ammunition.

Excellent bullet for the 6.5 Grendel and 6.5CM

I've used the 123sst, and 123Amax, in both 6.5Grendel and 6.5CM. I've also used it in 6.5-284, but they are a little soft for the velocity that round can deliver.
In the Grendel these are excellent bullets for medium game.
When launched at 2500fps, from my 20" AR they penetrated very well and gave text book expansion.
At 3000 from my 22" 6.5CM, they are more explosive, and shots should be limited to softer hits, due to the reduced penetration.
All of my shots have been inside of 200yds tho, and at longer range and lower impact velocity, I'd expect them to mimic the slower Grendel's performance.

Timely shipping and good pricing. I use it in my grendel and I’m Getting around half minute at 100yards with Benchmark.
Good hunting bullet

Using them to load 6.5 Grendel for an AR with 18” barrel and a CZ 527 with 24” barrel. Initial tests are promising with the CZ, giving slightly less than 1” at 100. I expect it might improve when the optimum load is found. Similar results from the AR but slightly mor3 than 1”. I have yet to use them on any game.

I've been reloading/hunting/competitive shooting for quite some time and I actually believe that Hornady's SST projectile is perhaps the most versatile on today's commercial market.

Shoot these out of a 6.5 Creedmoor that shoots 0.5 moa using match bullets. With these SST’s I get right around 1 moa. Not bad for a hunting bullet. The barrel is a 20” Faxon 5R Gunner barrel.
