.22 Caliber (.224) High Velocity 55 gr. SPT
In rifles, this bullet is fully capable of producing 1/4 minute of angle accuracy at velocities that would destroy most other bullets. Each bullet has the Spitzer point shape and a flat base. These bullets are the choice of many accomplished varmint hunters. All feature precisely drawn jackets to assure pinpoint accuracy and reliable expansion, even at maximum ranges. This bullet is slightly "hard" at 222 or 223 Remington velocities, but are especially well suited for velocities from 22-250 and 220 Swift cartridges.
For handguns, while capable of producing traditional Sierra accuracy, this bullet must be considered too "hard" at handgun velocities for anything other than target applications. If your handgun will produce velocities greater than 3000 fps at the muzzle, the 45 grain and 50 grain bullets could be used for hunting varmints out to moderate ranges, but will not have explosive expansion.

|W ith imr 4064 in 223 I'm getting groups measuring .75 in@200yrds .25 moa at 100 on average terminal performance is similar to the heavier 65gr GK when impact velocity is 3000fps and on out there deep penetration and devastating wound channel on coyotes even at 275yrds even neck shots on hogs out to 200 yrds penetration was enough to drop them in their tracks but prefer the 65gr on larger quarry|
