.22 Caliber (.224) High Velocity 55 gr. BlitzKing

For rifles, this bullet is designed for explosive expansion in varmints and small game and with accuracy characteristic of the MatchKing bullets. The nose tips of the bullets are made of a proprietary acetyl resin compound, and the sharp tips improve the ballistic coefficient over the traditional flat-base Spitzer bullet design. The 55 grain #1455 has a boat tail to further increase ballistic coefficient compared to a flat-base design in these bullet weights. All the BlitzKing bullets in 22 caliber are designed to be fired at muzzle velocities up to 4400 fps.

For handguns, the BlitzKing bullets are especially effective in varmints and small game for the full range of centerfire cartridges in 22 caliber. They have outstanding accuracy, a flat trajectory and superb expansion in small animals even with the smaller-capacity cartridges. The 55 grain #1455 bullet are recommended for moderate-capacity cartridges, such as the 222 Remington and the 223 Remington in handguns.

The #1455 was introduced in 1999.

This is an update to my last post. I have shot a coyote with one ad I was pleased to say it did just what I want it to. The coyote was dead before it hit the ground. The entrance hole was .22 the exit hole was about the size of a baseball. At first I was upset with the exit hole but then I took this into consideration the coyote was at 52 yards facing me. The shot went through the coyote's chest hitting the ribs causing the bullet to expand rapidly causing the exit hole. Since I last posted I have tried Nobles and V-max bullets they shot okay but I like the consistency of the Blitzing to anyone wanting a very deadly and accurate bullet. I hope this helps as I would recommend this bullet to any one.

I have a Savage Arms Axis chambered in .223 Remington with a Leupold VX III 4.5-14x40mm. I bought this rifle second hand for a song. I was worried that the rifle might have been a waste of my money. Once I got the rifle home and started to work up a load for the BlitzKing I realised that this rifle shoots as good if not better than some more expensive rifles I own. I currently am using Varget with a Remington BR primer on a 55g BlitzKing and am pleased to say that I can get 1/2 groups at 100yards. Providing I can hold steady and not get inside my own head. I have not yet been able to deploy them in the field on a coyote but can not wait to do so. I have shoot Sierra bullets most of my hunting life and have never been let down. I would recommend the Sierra BlitzKing to anyone wanting a very accurate bullet.

Blitzking's are the only varmint bullets I shoot. Accuracy is superb. My smallest 3 shot group was under .200" at 100 yards. One shot kills on groundhogs out to 500 yards. Very common to have no exit wound.

1/2 MOA with Varget. Safe for varminting in farm country. Sometimes no exit on coyotes, none have taken a step after a good shot. Affordable cost.

Typically produces one ragged hole groups at 100 yds for me, in front of Varget, with a Bushmaster Predator, 1-8" twist.
