    Found it: Super Shock Tip.

    Would be keen to know what the SP’s are going along at so we/I can chuck it in a ballistic calculator. I always thought it would be around 2500 out of the 20” barrel

    Just got some more data and will write a full report later.

    Belmont advertise it at 2815fps. Most likely from a 24 inch barrel.
    Its the same as the Belmont black that they sell for $280 for 250 rounds and comes with the ammo tin.

    Chopped my barrel down to 20" Fps is now 2650.
    Friends 16 inch T3x is getting 2500 on the dot.

    Tikka are notorious for being 50-100fps slower than other barrels of the same length.

    To get yr BC,zero say at a 100yds then with out adjusting yr scope,go to say 400yds and fire 3 or 4 shots at the top of yr target sheet and see what yr drop is as 400yds.Just adjust yr BC to match yr bullet drop,distance and velocity.Gota be close enough.

    This method works very well. I tried it a few times before using chonograph and was close enough for sure

    Yearling at 30 metres this week, one shot to the shoulder and fell where it stood with the Belmont SP 150gr. Same as a few months back a stag at a little over 320metres dropped where it stood.
    Very impressed with the killing power of these! 20 inch barrel

    I keep banging this drum in the face of the overwhelming desire of many shooters to pay way way way more for projectiles that have a plastic tip or simply promise more. Fact is that for killing deer and printing little groups there is very little to equal the Hornady spire point. And certainly not for the money. Belmont Ammo know this. Sure it has a flat base but it opens up fast, but holds together well and punches out the other side. That is what you want. I actually do like the 150gn SST in my 308 too but on big deer the SP edges it out for consistency. I have a 15 inch barreled Tikka. I run the SP as a standard load but carry a few 150gn SST Superformance in my pouch for the odd longer shot. The SP shoots 2 inches high at 100m. 2550 fps. The Superformance 3 inches high and 2750fps. Perfect.

    Having read entire thread but the 7x57 ammo from them with 139sst is literally the most accurate combination I have owned or shot and I have reloaded and owned a lot of rifles and calibre from 204 to 338.

    Unfortunately it's only going 2420 in my 17" barrel but has an es of less than 10 across the lab radar and 10 shots. Still seems to kill very well at that velocity however

    I ran out. Have some more on the way but its now a sierra soft point same price tho. Hopefully it shoots just as good for me.

    I will be doing the same. Making a 150 or 168 BT load for 250m+ but inside that ill use soft points.

    I had someone complain to me it doestn have nice packaging or the pastic ammo holder things....Well what do you want to pay for...the product. Or the product + some fancy packaing with gold lettering and a clear window and some plastic ammo holders and the middle man and retailer.

    Shot this wallaby a fortnight ago. In the Humerus threw the chest and out the other side in the armpit area.
    Expansion was about 20c piece on the exit hole, very impressive considering how well it also performs on larger game too.
