    My macro photography may not be that great, but the Sako SuperHammerheads certainly are. This 180-grainer launched at 2520 ft/sec broke the big shoulder joint of an eland cow at 80m. It was retrieved below the skin of the opposing ribcage (quartering-on shot) and retained 81% weight. Granted, you are talking higher muzzle velocities, but I have used this bullet on many a kudu, always having excellent results.

    This is 8 shots consisting of four different loads with 130gr GS Customs. This was just to tests speed. Will start with seating depth in two weeks.

    I am currently using the 85gr hpbt in my 243 and it performs well. Will use the GS 69gr as soon as I can get them to group at a consistant 15mm, up to now I hAve only got MOA with them

    As the GS is a hunting bullet MOA is surely good enough out to 300m. You need speed to get the monos to expand sufficiently.

    I have used gamekings extensively. they work well but are not ideal at close range as they are fairly frangible.
    About the super hammerheads: Not bad, and penetration is good but I have experienced separation with the 250gr in my .338 WM on a animal (Eland), with the core going right through and the jacket remaining inside the animal. Could be a once off issue but personally i think the Swift is a better option.

    I would suggest using Norma Kalahari 150 gr, exceptional. I have hunted from Steenbok to Eland but mostly Blue Wildebeest and Gemsbok. Chest and head shots out to 250 meters.
