The xst is a ballistic tip. They shoot good out of my x7l marlin. I also shoot berger vld 130s through it

Made a hole bout the size of a baseball comin out of her neck. The others where between the size of a golf ball and a tennis ball on exit through the ribs. The one i shot in the head was a royal mess.

Yeah, I own one of each. The 7x57 in a Ruger #1 single shot and the .244 (6 mm) Remington in a model 722. Both great rifles and great cartridges.
