.22 Caliber (.224) High Velocity 55 gr. SBT
In rifles chambering 22 caliber cartridges of moderate to large powder capacity, this famous bullet is perhaps the most efficient 22 caliber bullet available for varmints at long range or targets. The spitzer boat tail design provides exceptional accuracy and a flat trajectory. The high ballistic coefficient of this bullet provides less sensitivity to crosswinds and vertical winds and greater retained velocity and energy downrange. It is an excellent choice for most 22 centerfire cartridges but is at its best in the 22-250, 220 Swift, and similar high-velocity cartridges. For target shooting purposes this 55 grain spitzer boat tail has been surpassed by the heavier MatchKing bullets in 22 caliber, but in many rifles it delivers match-grade accuracy.
For handguns, because it has the Sierra high velocity construction, this bullet is too "hard" to be recommended for hunting applications. However, it features the famous Sierra accuracy and is certainly an excellent choice for long-range accuracy under all conditions. If a boat tail bullet with extremely high accuracy fits your needs for target shooting, then this bullet should be your choice.
The #1365 was introduced in 1980.

|Culled over 2000 animals ranging from springbuck to eland with this bullet from 20 to 600 yards with 22-250 Tikka continental with 1-14 heavy barrel at 3850 fs mostly headshots up to 300 body shots for the rest 95% one shot kills, windage and shot placement is essential. Meat bruising is minimal compered to my other calibres.Who cares about bullet retention if the animal goes down every shot 5% is human error not poor bullet performance. Great bullet|

|I was able to get great accuracy with H 4895 out of my .22-250 savage 12 fvss 26" barrel - 5/16" 3 shot groups at 100 yards @ 3610 fps. Good penetration on coyotes- killed one at 200 yards the other day and bullet performance was excellent.|

|This bullet gets smaller groups in my 22 250 than any other 55 grain bullet from Spear, Hornaday or Nosler.|

|I have been using this bullet in the 223 for 30 years. It is accurate, deadly and dependable. A must have bullet.|

|Best bullet I have ever shot out of my 22-250. 5 shot group at 1/4 moa at 200. Great for coyotes deer and antelope.|

|This bullet has made numerous kills with a 223 and 22-250. The 223 is good out to 550 yards and the 22-250 750 yards. I hope that you never stop making this product.|

|This bullet is both accurate and expands reliably in the .222 Rem that I use to shoot Roe Deer. Giving excellent knock down power, the bullet kills cleanly with minimal meat damage, it has rapidly become my round of choice when stalking Roe in woodland margins, where shooting distances are normally under 120 yards.|
