Reviews and comments written for the Speer Grand Slam bullet.
 
I've been hand loading since 1981 and hunted with this bullet for all North American game. I recently killed a Wild Russian Boar and the bullet and load performed flawlessly, one shot thru and thru. I killed a B & C Caribou one shot. I shot and killed a 8'6' Sq. Grizzly Bear and it took four shots in the shoulders, the bullets never went thru. Big Bears can take a lot of punishment and still keep going. I can shoot .750 minute of angle at 100 yds with my Sako Safari Grade rifle. I can't say enough about the Speer G.S. Bullet.

I was worried about 100 grain grand slam in 243win not expanding on smaller deer. After shooting my first deer a fallow doe it left a large exit wound through the sholder. Im sure it will do a great job when i find a trophy buck. With hand loads i was able to shoot under 1 moa.

I normaly use Nosler Part. in my 338 210gr and was out of bullets to reload, I had just bought a new 338 and had a last min invite to hunt pigs figuring this would be a great hunt to get that gun it's first kill, I used the 250gr GS had one day to reload and dial in, it was shooting 1.5" groups @ 100 yards good enought for a hunt, I had a facing shot at a feeding hog 160+ lbs at 80 yards it went in front top next to shoulder the bullet went full length of the pig and was found aginst hide and went through rear leg, it mushroomed just fine and weighted 216grs the hog went maybe 10 steps and died.

I've used the 175 gr. Grand Slam in my 7mm Mag for many years. I've taken everything from whitetails, mulies, elk and moose. All have been one shot kills pretty near where they stood. My last experience was a bull elk at 384 yards, broadside. He did walk about 50 yrds but then again, that's a bull elk for you. Recovered bullet weight was 144.5 grains for better than 80% mass retention. Can't complain about that.

I live in Sask & I have shot many Moose & Elk with this bullet being pushed along at over 2700 fps: I find that it holds together well & has a lot of knock down power when it gets there, I like the overall performance of the bullet & will continue to use it on these large beasts in the northern forest:

I have used this bullet for the last ten years on whitetails.I like the 145's better than the 160's.The performance is near perfect.It will smash through bone and keep on going.This bullet makes a very nice wound channel,looks like an 11/2"-2" cannonball passed through but destroys very little meat around it.I was getting too much penetration with 160's,this bullet would be better for larger game.The 145's seem to deliver more shock and will drop them on the spot with a comeplete pass through.I have taken over 30 whitetails with these bullets in a 7mm mag. at 3200fps. and only recovered one after going through over 24" of deer.My hats off to a great bullet.
