.22 Caliber (.224) High Velocity 40 gr. HP
For rifles, this high-velocity bullet is designed to give precision accuracy with the explosive expansion of Sierra's Varminter-style construction. Although the bullet may prove to be somewhat "hard" at Hornet velocities, it can be extraordinarily accurate at these lower velocity levels.
For handguns, although this bullet is of hollow point construction, we cannot recommend them for hunting purposes. This bullet should be considered for ranges in excess of 125-150 yards. Also works very well as a target bullet.
The #1385 was introduced in 1984.

|Exceptionally accurate bullet in 223 rem, with 1 in 9 twist. Can be downloaded to 22 hornet or 22 mag velocities in the 223,where it still somewhat expands, but does not fragment at the lower velocities. Found it to shoot sub MOA at 2190, 2550 and 3400 FPS , from Savages 223 Pig gun, bolt action.can be used for small game at the lower velocities and full speed varmint round.applications. Why buy a 22 mag or Hornet!|
