The Hornady® SST® (Super Shock Tip) is designed to deliver tremendous shock on impact while expanding quickly and reliably, particularly at higher velocities.
Flat shooting and deadly accurate, it’s an ideal bullet for whitetails, as well as most North American game animals from antelope to moose and similar-sized African plains game.
The SST® creates a devastatingly large wound channel.
Super Shock Tip Bullets combine proven Hornady performance with a higher ballistic coefficient than available with most hunting bullets.
The sharp, pointed polymer tip creates a faster, flatter shooting bullet.
With its one-piece core and jacket strengthened in critical areas, the SST delivers much more controlled expansion and superior weight retention than other tipped bullets.
Featuring Hornady’s trade mark Interlock ring system, this bullet’s core and jacket remain locked solid during expansion, creating massive wound channels.
Upon impact, the hard polymer tip drives into the lead core like a wedge, initiating lightning-fast, yet controlled expansion.
Secant Ogive, Boattail Profile
Incorporating the pioneering Hornady secant ogive design, the tapered point, increased bearing surface and more aerodynamic profile, combined with a boattail base, makes the SST® more efficient with less drag and greater stability.
A mid-body cannelure helps keep the core and jacket together while providing a consistent, accurate crimp during the loading process.
This Hornady exclusive design mechanically locks the core and jacket together to maintain bullet integrity during expansion, ensuring maximum weight retention and increasing the chances of complete pass-throughs.

NOTE: These are bullets which are intended to be used in conjunction with reloading.
This is NOT loaded ammunition.
Hornady’s custom grade dies provide a lifetime of reloading.
They’re so well crafted that they’re guaranteed never to break or wear out from normal use and now they’re better than ever!
The spindle design features a series of light threads out on the spindle and spindle colet.
This design eliminates spindle slippage and takes the knuckle busting out of tightening the spindle lock while making spindle adjustments a snap.
