Hornady Superformance SST Ammunition 243 Winchester 95 Grain SST 500 rounds

(4 customer reviews)


Superformance ammunition is loaded with proprietary propellants that increase the velocity ratings up to 200 feet per second compared to other popular brands. Because there is no increase in pressure, regardless of the caliber, there is no increase in felt recoil but there IS an increase in efficiency and high speed performance. From sub-zero arctic temperatures to almost unbearable desert heat, Superformance ammunition can withstand any hunting condition.

Loaded with Hornady’s InterLock Super Shock Tip (SST) bullet, this round combines 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.

    Hornady 243 95 Grain SST
    Harvested many deer with this ammo out of my TC Encore. Never had a whitetail go more than 50 yards – quick, clean kills. Largest deer taken was a 170 class whitetail – shot behind shoulder, recovered bullet just under hide on off-side shoulder – running shot and deer went maybe another 20 yards going downhill. Excellent ammo and makes my single shot rifle Encore my go-to gun.

    Very accurate nice hunting round for .243

    I recently used the 95 SST Superformance .243 to take two whitetails in the Texas Hill Country near Sonora, Texas. The first was a nine point buck at 100 yards. A single high shoulder shot killed it instantly and dropped it in its tracks. The bullet exited in front of the opposite shoulder. I then took a doe at 50 yards with a double lung shot tight behind the shoulder and an exit behind the opposite shoulder. The doe hunched up at the shot, stumbled about 25 feet, and fell dead. Impressive quick kills with complete penetration on both deer.

    Now using the SST exclusively in my Ruger Precision Rifle with great confidence and performance. A very good round
