.22 Caliber (.224) High Velocity 55 gr. HPBT

For rifles, the 55 grain #1390 Hollow Point Boat Tail bullet has been designed for the shooter who prefers the rapid expansion characteristics of the hollow point design. This bullet delivers devastating expansion on varmints and small game, and in many rifles it routinely delivers match-grade accuracy, which are vital considerations for long-range varmint shooting. The large, open point makes this a very dependable bullet for all 22 centerfire cartridges, except the very smallest where case capacity limits muzzle velocities with 55 grain bullets.


In handguns, this Hollow Point Boat Tail 55 grain #1390 bullet with its cavernous opening can be used for short-range varmint shooting in handguns chambering the 223 Remington or larger cartridges. This bullet is built with Sierra's high velocity design and is capable of extremely high accuracy.

The #1390 was introduced in 1984.

Very accurate bullet makes a good bullet for longer shots on coyotes and woodchucks 99% of the time it's bang flop. I get ΒΌ moa at 100 yards withem in the little 223 and 1/2" or better in others calibers. The Sierra Game Kings BTHP is my main hunting bullet in all my hunting rifles

I never used .223 rem on any big game ever. On 1/03/16 doe season here in Kansas, I shot a big fat doe and she was ran around 20 yards, and dropped. I am a believer of this bullet would take a deer down without any problem! RECAP (215 yards shown on the range finder, 17 MPH wind, 31 degree F.

New to the reloading field, not much to compare with. Out of the gate light load, IMR 3031 20.5gr est. 2800 ft/sec. 5 round group at about 75yrds. Less than .500 . No complaints with that. Looking forward to pushing it out there, and see how she handles 200 + yards.

Sierra 55 gr bullets are one of my to go to bullets for accuracy in 3 gun matches. Other brands work good for up close, but when you need accuracy at distance...Sierra bullets will get-r-done. No doubt. Wish I could get them to allow me to put a Sierra logo on my shirt.

Used this bullet on coyotes, ground squirrels, and prairie dogs out of my Remington 22-250. Does devastating damage to coyotes pelts which doesn't bother me cuz I know they are dead. Outstanding bullet for sure

This wonderful little projectile is the 'hammer of the gods' on game. I use it in my bolt action and semi auto .223s, on game ranging from critters to goats.

Works great as reduced load for larger varmints in my Savage Axis 223 around my rural home. I'm limited to 140y shots. 13.2g Blue Dot yields 2600 fps. 3 shots in one small hole @ 50y. Stops tough coons, possums, skunks right now .
