GameChanger Hunting Bullets
By Sierra Tech Team
The 2019 hunting seasons are in full swing, making them the first full seasons for the latest additions to the Sierra Bullets hunting lineup. In the fall of 2018, we introduced our new GameChanger bullets. These are also seen mentioned as Tipped GameKing (TGK), but are not just a re-do of the GameKing bullets that we have used very successfully for many years.
The GameChanger bullets are actually a new design that incorporates features from other types that Sierra make, resulting in a unique and enhanced bullet style. They do feature a synthetic tip, which serves to maximize the ballistic coefficient (high BC), allowing for greater downrange trajectory and energy performance. The tip also allows us to achieve a very positive expansion over a wide range of velocities and types of game animals. The increase in jacket wall thickness ensures very deep penetration with each shot. This special bullet style gives us a true all-purpose bullet design. Our initial offerings included:
We have had multitudes of favorable reports for both accuracy and game performance. Watch the videos below to see the bullets in action.
We have received many requests for other caliber and bullet weights, and rest assured that we will continue to add to this line. Stay tuned for further Product Announcements!
Any plans for .25 cal Game Changers ?
I have found these in 6.5 shot in my AR-15 in 6.5 Grendel to be as accurate as any other Bullet that I have tried. I have not been able to use it to collect a Whitetail yet. The reason I am commenting on this Bullet is I have ejected two rounds after they were chambered and found that the tip had broken off during the ride from the magazine into the chamber. I have not had this issue with tipped Nosler or Hornady Bullets.
This leads me to believe that the GameChangers need work on the durability of the tip. Until then if I use them they will be hand chambered for hunting.
Hi, are the 6mm tgk sent to Australia? I can’t find them anywhere.
My thoughts exactly, Jerry. Would also love to see this bullet in 25 cal. Loved it with my .308 this past season (2019). Two whitetail. One was DRT at about 180, and second ran maybe 30yds. It was a 70yd shot.
Can you please assist us on some reloading data ons the 6.5mm bullets please, if you have something in the 260Rem it would be very nice
I and I’m sure many 25 caliber fans would love to see a .257 gamechanger bullet. I would like to see it in either a 110 or 115 grain. Also, I would like to see either a 180 or 200 grain gamechanger in .308 caliber. If not the above, then please offer a tipped Gameking bullet in the weights requested above.
Another vote for .257 here! Have had good results with .243 version. Thinking this would be an awesome pronghorn projectile.
Can you please supply info to use the 6.5 TMK (part 4330) in a 6.5 x 55 swedish mauser, using Hodgdon h4350 powder. I would like to shoot 2750ft/s if possible. The rifle used is a Sako, 24 inch barrel, twist rate 1:7.8
Please also supply me with the physical data of the bullet to enable me to enter the bullet on Quickload.
