6mm .243 Caliber (.243) 80 gr. Blitz SBT
In rifles chambered for either the 6mm Remington or 243 Winchester cartridge, this 80 grain #1515 Blitz bullet is dependably frangible and has no peer as a varmint bullet at velocities delivered by these cartridges. The Sierra Spitzer boat tail shape assures a flat trajectory, good resistance to crosswinds and vertical winds, and high-energy delivery even at extreme ranges. Built at the request of numerous varmint shooters, this bullet will bring out the best in both a shooter and his rifle for all varmint hunting applications.
In handguns, the soft core and thin jacket of this 80 grain #1515 Blitz bullet will deliver positive expansion at handgun velocities together with the accuracy and ballistic efficiency of the famous Sierra boat tail shape.
The #1515 was introduced in 1994.

|This bullet is very accurate at 3,420 fps with Superformance powder out of my .243 win ( 26" custom Hart barrel). Shoots under half inch - awesome coyote load! I've killed 2 crows @ 270 yards and a coyote at 200 yards so far. Coyote dropped on the spot.|

|Loaded with IMR 4064 in 243 Win for my Tikka WT Hunter, shoots like a house afire. Unzipped a yote in a head on chest shot, stem to stern. Very accurate in my 1:10 barrel.|

|I have used the 80Blitz in 243, 6-284, ad now 6 Remington. Running 3500 in 6 Remington an 3600 in the 6-284 I used to have and it flat hammers coyotes at these high velocities with an exit hole being rare. Also shoots about like Match Kings.|
