Does this in 178 superperformance match overcome the limitations mentioned in the books about hunting with the HPBT?

Doubt it does, only asking cause I've seen some at a good price.

I’m sure if you trimmed the meplat back just a little bit it would ensure the results you’re after, but that is not based on any experience on my part so take that for what it’s worth.

Hi Bryan, as Calvin said, meplat diameter is the key. The sacfrice in BC is worth it. Trim the meplat as per Cartridges 2, set the input BC to .480 and see how this correlates to the actual drop in the field.
