For rifles in 6mm caliber, deadly Hollow Point construction and legendary Sierra accuracy combine to make this bullet an outstanding choice for most varmint hunting. Designed for high velocities, the bullet features a gaping hollow point to ensure positive expansion even at long range. Capable of outstanding accuracy from a wide variety of 6mm rifle cartridges.
For handguns, as the Varminter name implies, these are excellent varmint and small game bullets. The Varminter construction lends itself well to the velocities attainable with cartridges such as the 6mm TCU, 6mm PPC and 6mm BR. This Sierra bullet features precision accuracy and are best utilized at short to medium ranges for varmints and small game.
The #1510 was introduced in 1956.
For rifles, this is a high-velocity bullet designed to give precision accuracy with the explosive expansion of Sierra's Varminter-style construction. This bullet is at its best when fired from the larger-capacity cartridges, such as the 22-250 or 220 Swift in rifles with barrels having 1x14" twist rates, stabilizing easily for excellent long-range accuracy and effective expansion. Normally, 1x12" or faster twist rates work best for medium-capacity cases, such as the 223 Remington. These bullets are excellent for long-range varmint hunting.
For handguns, although this bullet is of Hollow Point construction, we cannot recommend it for hunting purposes. This bullet has been very successful on half-size NRA Silhouette targets.
The #1375 was introduced in 1984.
Originally designed as a varmint bullet for smaller capacity 25 caliber cartridges, this 87 grain Spitzer bullet #1610 has taken on an expanded role. It turned out to be extremely accurate at all velocity levels, making it suitable for loading in the entire range of 25 caliber cartridges. This bullet gives outstanding performance as a varmint bullet at high velocities, but may also be used as a medium game bullet from smaller-capacity cartridges such as the 250-3000 Savage or 257 Roberts.
