.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.

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 .
