The SST is available in both the Superperformance and the Custom options from Hornady. I shoot the Supers in my 280 and the Customs in my 308.

The SST is an excellent bullet as is Nosler's Accubond.

I.ve bought the compact handi-rifle in .243 for my children ,installed an adjustable ar stock ,4x weaver ....perfect, affordable,small child compatible shooter they can grow into . 1 trick to help forearm be a little more free-floating I took a small rubber tire off son's toy truck (had only 2 on it anyway)installed it around barrel /forearm stud like a rubber washer which gave me about an 1/8 between forearm and barrel ....tightened up 100 yrd groups to about 1.5 -2 moa ..if I lay off on the java monster coffee drink .
