A Barnes Original in an Orange MMP sabot in my Savage is twice as hard to load than the SST in my Ultra Hunter.

And best of all, they aren't $1 each \:\)

I think you'll like them. I shoot the 250s in my Savage at 2100fps+. They are accurate and they have performed well for me on deer thus far (last 3 years).

2100fps is on the slow side for smokeless. I believe he's gonna end up in the 2600fps range.

The deer I shot would beg to differ. \:\) But, I know what you are saying, relatively speaking.

Yes I was aware of that and I realize some people have worries of SSTs fragmenting at top end smokeless less speeds, thus the reason I listed my muzzle velocity so he would know the entire story.

As far as performance I don't see why I need to go to the all copper Barnes. I killed 2 deer with the SST's this year, both high shoulder shots (at 135 yds and 22 yrds) and both complete pass thrus. 135 yrd deer was a bang-flop and the 22 yrd deer only went about 20 yards after he woke up from the 20 second nap he took when I shot him.
What muzzle velocity was you shooting the SSTs at when you killed these two?

2700ish. The 40 cal SSTs have a thicker jacket than the 45 cals, especially the 250 gr 45s.
