    8 MM 150 GR. SPT

    150 Gr.
    0.323
    , ,
    All modern 8mm rifles, including all German military arms manufactured since 1905, use .323 inch diameter bullets. However, German military rifles manufactured between 1888 and 1905 used a .318 inch diameter bullet. Many of those rifles were rebarreled to .323 inch bores after 1905, but some rifles of the smaller bore size were brought back from WWI and WWII and still exist. Some German sporting guns, particularly combination guns made until 1938, used 8mm cartridges with .318 inch diameter bullets. Sometimes, a .323 inch diameter bullet can be loaded and fired in a cartridge intended for a .318 inch groove diameter, but dangerously high chamber pressures result. If you do not know that your bore size is .323 inch, slug your barrel before loading .323 inch diameter bullets. There are two Pro-Hunter bullets in .323 inch caliber in Sierra's line and both are the Spitzer type. These 8mm hunting bullets provide exceptional accuracy together with deep penetration and reliable expansion on medium and heavier game. The 150 grain #2400 is an excellent choice for medium game at typical 8mm Mauser velocities, but it will be too destructive when used in the 8mm Remington Magnum.

    8MM 220 GR. SBT

    220 Gr.
    0.323
    , ,
    The same comment made earlier for the Pro-Hunter bullets concerning the 8mm bore sizes applies here. Be very sure your rifle is bored for bullets of .323 inch diameter. Designed and constructed specifically for the 8mm Remington Magnum, this sleek 220 grain #2420 Spitzer Boat Tail bullet is an outstanding choice for the largest game on the North American continent and for African plains game. This bullet has an extremely heavy, double-tapered jacket for deep, smashing penetration. Sierra's classic SBT shape ensures a flat trajectory, minimum sensitivity to crosswinds and vertical winds, and exceptional accura- cy. It will prove to be too "hard" at 8x57mm velocities, and is not recommend- ed for use in any cartridge producing less than magnum-level velocities

    .35 CALIBER 200 GR. RN

    200 Gr.
    0.358
    , ,
    This popular bullet was designed for use with the smaller 35 caliber hunting cartridges, and it has proven its worth year after year. It is designed and constructed to perform reliably on medium to large game and give maximum accuracy in cartridges such as the 35 Remington and 358 Winchester. This bullet, with its cannelure for crimping and roundnose configuration, can be used in rifles with tubular magazines. Ranges should be kept less than 150 yards when using the 35 Remington cartridge to ensure expansion in medium game. This very useful bullet takes many medium and big game animals every year, especially in areas where ranges are short to medium distances and fast shots are necessary. For handguns, this bullet is preferred for the 35 Remington and similar cartridges for all game, small through large at short ranges. Range should be kept less than 125 yards to ensure proper bullet performance even with maximum hunting loads. Reduced or moderate loads are not recommended when bullet expansion is required. This is a very accurate bullet that holds its own in the field or on the target range.

    .35 CALIBER 225 GR. SBT

    225 Gr.
    0.358
    , ,
    For rifles, when Remington standardized the popular .35 Whelen wildcat cartridge, Sierra designed the 225 grain #2850 Spitzer Boat Tail bullet for the 35 Whelen and similar cartridges. This bullet has a heavy, double-tapered jacket drawn to very tight tolerances and a special alloy core for deep penetration and good expansion on heavy game. It also has the classic Sierra SBT shape for exceptional ballistic efficiency among 35 caliber bullets. This bullet delivers incredible accuracy and retains velocity and energy exceptionally well downrange. The flat trajectory extends the useful range of all appropriate 35 caliber cartridges and delivers smashing power even at long range. Although not suited for the 35 Remington cartridge, it is well matched to the more potent 358 Winchester and 350 Remington Magnum cartridges, as well as the 35 Whelen. In any of these cartridges, it is appropriate for all North American big game. In handguns, while the 225 grain #2850 Spitzer Boat Tail GameKing bullet is not recommended for hunting due to its extreme toughness, it is still useful to the handgunner. Those hearty silhouette shooters who can't get away from a favorite 357 Herrett or 35 Remington have a streamlined, high ballistic coefficient, low crosswind sensitivity bullet to use at 200 meters. This bullet can be fired at 1700 fps from a T/C Contender with a 10 inch barrel in 357 Herrett or 35 Remington, and it won't leave a ram standing. Also, it is capable of half minute-of-angle accuracy.

    .375 CALIBER 250 GR. SBT

    250 Gr.
    0.375
    , ,
    This heavy bullet has Sierra's classic spitzer boat tail shape for high ballistic coefficient and high ballistic efficiency downrange. It delivers accuracy well under one minute of angle. This bullet has an extremely heavy double-tapered jacket and an extremely hard core for absolute control of expansion on heavy game. It is suitable for all North American big game from elk and moose to the large and dangerous Kodiak bear and suitable for all large thin-skinned African game in rifles firing the 375 H&H Magnum cartridge. The excess velocity of maximum loads in the 378 Weatherby Magnum cartridge makes this bullet too light for close range and dangerous game. However, loaded to the correct velocity levels, this bullet has proven itself in the game fields around the world.

    , ,
    This bullet was developed after extensive research and a year and a half of testing by Sierra, and it exemplifies our commitment to quality and performance of our products. The jacket of this bullet is formed from the heaviest Sierra cup through Sierra's unique four-station draw to very precise dimensions. A very hard 3% antimony lead alloy core is inserted, and the bullet is given the classic Sierra SBT shape. Designed especially for the 375 H&H Magnum cartridge, this bullet has excellent expansion and deep penetration on heavy game at all ranges for a wide variety of hunting situations. Sierra has received many reports of 5-shot groups at 100 yards that measured less than half an inch extreme spread! An exceptionally high ballistic coefficient and smashing down-range performance combine to make this an ideal bullet in a 375 H&H Magnum or 378 Weatherby Magnum for the largest game on the North American continent and for heavy thin-skinned African game.
