I know some live by hornady so this will go over like a lead ballon, but I have never been particularly impressed with hornady bullets. I have gotten other brands to shoot more accurately in most of my rifles than hornady. Also I have been severely disappointed with the on game performance from a wide variety of hornady bullets. From exits the size of a grape fruit to zero expansion from one bullet to the next in the same box with similar shot placement. I don't shoot hornady any more. This is hand loaded not factory.
I shoot hornaday SST 117gr in my 25-06, shoots real good and has been great on deer this year (my first shooting the 25-06). I tried the american whitetail ammo and it was not as accurate, although with the soft point I would bet you get good internal damage from that sucker.
As mentioned above, i would have decent groups but an occassional flier with the WT ammo, not good enough for me when the SST shoots 1/2-3/4MOA easily all day long.
I also shoot the 117 sst out of my 25-06. Super accurate. I bought the gun last year. I had a 60 yard neck shot,,,, pass through. I also had a 140 yard lung shot,,,past through. Im sticking with them until I have a reason not to.
