    I shot a medium size nanny last weekend using the 135 gr hollow points. (I was actually after pigs but couldn't pass up some freezer meat). Shot her through the front shoulder which dropped her on the spot of course but due to the rapid expanding nature of the round I wasted a fair bit of meat. Anyway, that shoulder will go to the dog. haha. In short if I'm going after meat goats specifically then I wouldn't use this round.
    Can confirm also that this round is great on pigs. Shot a decent size sow and she dropped like a rock. It wasn't the best shot on my part, as the round hit her in the neck in that big thick section of muscle above the spine and behind the ear. The damage was catastrophic but what impressed me was that there was still a fair bit of weight retention in the bullet. Granted it didn't pass through bone, but when I squeezed the trigger an enormous explosion of dust kicked up behind as large pieces of the bullet blew through her. Good sized exit wound of about 2.5 inches. I wasn't expecting that with a hollow point even weighing 135gr. Impressive stuff.

    I'll make up some hand loads with these or using the 130gr Speers.

    Who needs ballistic gel when you have old tree trunks.

    Hi Ozzie – i watched the video. 9.5/10 ­čÖé nice stuff. Just 1 question > how do you value or rate a 308 subsonic ammo vs 308 supersonic/normal ammo if available by the same vendor ? yes. i have seen them on websites and in the market that subsonic ammo's are also available , how do you rate them and what is your view about them ? would they be good on hunting or target shooting ???

    Hi Ozzie, love the reviews. Any experience with the Fed 130gr through the Tikka T3 or CTR?

    Hey Ozzie, what would be a good rifle and calibre you would recommend for hunting medium size Kangaroo and Whitetail Deer at 100-200m. Thanks.

    The Aussie Outback 165gr Sierra Gamekings also shoot sub MOA in my .308 A Bolt.

    Hi Ozzie, coming to you from the UK at the moment. And I've brought my hat!! Thanks for the review as it will help me with ammo choices for my intended .223 when I get back.

    Seriously Oz, this review couldn't have come at a better time. Was questioning this week whether my .308 would be too much gun for a breeding pair of wild dogs I'm about to go after. They're roaming over 2000 acres. 135gr Sierra hollow point is the perfect answer to that question. I've just gotta find the dogs now.

    Thanks for the review. At least now I know what hollow point, soft point, gameking v matchking all means.

    Love those OSA 135's. Plenty of punch for the game I come across, polite shooting manners, and pretty reasonable on the hip pocket.
