Thread: Sierra Varminter 22b bullets 52off.

  1. #1

    Sierra Varminter 22b bullets 52off.

    These won't group in my .222R and are more suited to barrels with a faster twist than 1 in 14.

    Got the headline slightly wrong. Should say Code 1330, Spitzer .224 50 grain.

    To quote from the Sierra web site about these bullets:
    22 Caliber (.224) High Velocity 50 gr. SPT

    In rifles, this bullet is fully capable of producing 1/4 minute of angle accuracy at velocities that would destroy most other bullets. Each bullet has the Spitzer point shape and a flat base. This bullet is the choice of many accomplished varmint hunters. It features precisely drawn jackets to assure pinpoint accuracy and reliable expansion, even at maximum ranges. This bullet is slightly "hard" at 222 or 223 Remington velocities, but are especially well suited for velocities from 22-250 and 220 Swift cartridges.

    Product - Sierra Bullets - The Bulletsmiths

    So if anyone wants them let me know. 12 miles North of Bristol. M5 J14 or 15.

    This just shows how different rifles perform. Luckily, the Sierra #1330 were the first bullet I tried in my 1:14" Heym SR40, too many years ago. They've never been matched for accuracy by anything else including Nosler BTips and various Match bullets. They've proved the ideal weight for the .222 ... at least for me.

    At the moment #1330 aren't in stock locally, but I'm thwarted by the F-2-F rules anyway. Hope someone near you can make use of these - they're well worth a trial.

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
