|I have shot two cow elk with the 150gr SGK out of my 270WSM. Last year's was a bang-flop chest shot at barely over 100yds. Went in between ribs on left side and broke two on right side going out. Hydraulic shock did a number on the boiler room; wound channel took out the lungs. She never tried to get up, just kicked a couple of times and expired. This year's was lasered at 465yds, farther than I guessed, so I hit lower than I would want. Bullet shattered right front leg at joint, penetrated/broke breastbone and shot through left front leg bone. Shock severely bruised heart and bloodshot both lungs. Jacket recovered just under off-side skin, right past shattered leg bone. Jacket-core separation is over-rated "problem." Two shattered legs and brisket coupled with fatal internal injuries is success story in my book! I have shot well over 100 Texas whitetail with Sierra bullets in my lifetime using several different calibers. They have always come through, and usually yield the best accuracy. The load I use for elk in my 270WSM has given 3-shot groups as small as 0.4" at 100yds.|

|When working up a long range load for my Savage 11 270 WSM I was a little frustrated with either my groups or speeds with those long poly tip bullets. Since SGKs gave such good accuracy in my other rifles I decided to give them a try and first time out they shot a one hole group at 100yds averaging 3010fps with a healthy dose of RL22, I tried that same load several more times yielding cloverleaf or better groups every time, while they don't have the .500+BC that some of the "high tech" bullets have there is no doubt that I will be using the Sierra come opening day. I load Sierra bullets in EVERY rifle cartridge I handload for, and after years of experience here is my honest opinion. 1 Across the board this is the most accurate bullet out there, a few rifles will shoot slightly tighter with another bullet but EVERYTHING shoots very well with the SGK even my super picky Browning. 2 After many heads of game I have never been disappointed with the terminal performance, the only gripe I have is sometimes they are a little TOO dramatic for smallish deer at full speed/close range forcing me to reduce speeds a bit or reach for my 7mm-08 or 6.5x55 instead of my 30-06 or various magnums to reduce meat damage. The furthest I have ever had a SGK hit deer run was 20 yards, and that was an accidental gut shot. 3 I have never had an instance of core/jacket separation, I think that "problem" is way too overblown by the bonded bullet market, especially when talking about deer/hog class game.|

|Excellent groupings in both my 270 Win and 270 WSM for target ( less than .625" at 100 yards in both) and superior penetration, expansion and knock down on 240 lb deer.|
