Hornady bullet failures have been discussed at length on AfricaHunting. I stumbled onto a site which may be of interest in that debate. Terminal Ballistics Research site is devoted to serious study of what makes for efficient killing of game animals. The founder has participated in the taking of thousands of head of game, and taken copious notes on the effect of different projectiles at varying velocities and ranges. The TBR site quotes Hornady by name and seems to suggest that it guided and or approves the developement of such bullets as the SST. Some of the conclusions of the site make seem at variance with traditionally held views on how to stop an animal in its tracks. You may not, for example, agree with their views on "weight shedding" of bullets upon impact. I would invite AH members to visit the site and comment: are TBR and Hornady on the right track or not. Regardless, it would seem that TBR has Hornady's ear on guiding principles for cartridge developement. What say you?
