    Sierra 140gr HPBT

    Hi, has anyone tried the new hp from Sierra?
    Im looking for the 7mm08 I already use the SGK 140gr
    ...................................
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!
    Another 7mm08 shooter!

    I really like the SPBT SGK but its a little soft so it may be a good alternative.
    Not sure if the 7mm08 will push it fast enough though

    I use the 140gr SPBT SGK and find it's very good but I don't push it too fast 2,730 ft/sec. Always an exit on Reds so can't see the problem.

    However to the original question, 140gr HPBT. I used to use the Sierra HPBT a few years ago in my 243 (85gr) and all I can say is it was very good and used it mostly on Fallow and smaller. Yes it was a tough bullet, superbly accurate, seemed to always do the job, generally an exit unless over 200 yards and very little meat damage unless very close range which is to be expected.

    So I have some on order for my 7mm-08 and will be picking them up asap, will report back when I can.

    On the point of loading some in 6.5 @ 130gn , based upon great results some years ago with a .243. Would make a good alternative to 130NAB.

    used the sierra 140 hollow point game king in the 7x64 last few days 8 sika stags all carcases showed no excessive damage small entry and on average a 2 inch exit so will be continuing using them

    Just a quick update on the 7mm HPBT for 7mm-08. Got some, made a load, 2770 f/s, very accurate.
    Will use them when we start in November.
    More to come. . .

    Got some a few weeks ago shot a few deer with them now I thought they where very similar in terminal performance as the gamekings no more no less damage, accuracy was similar as well
