7 mm/.284 Caliber (.284) 100 gr. HP
It has been said that a prairie dog shooter learns more about his rifle, cartridge and scope in one day than a deer hunter can learn in a lifetime. The 100 grain Hollow Point #1895 bullet allows off-season practice on varmints with any 7mm hunting rifle. This light, thin-jacketed bullet is exceptionally accurate, and the large hollow point makes it devastatingly effective on all varmints. Effective in cartridges ranging from the diminutive 7mm BR to the potent 7mm magnums, the lightweight of this bullet allows high velocity with low recoil for maximum enjoyment. It is accurate enough for use in Hunter Benchrest competition, and it is suitable for all standard 7mm barrel twist rates.
In handguns, the 100 grain #1895 Hollow Point bullet is a light bullet for the varmint and small game hunter, and should be used for any application that requires certain expansion. This is the lightest 7mm caliber bullet currently available, and the high velocity coupled with Sierra's large hollow point makes it unbeatable for fast, reliable expansion and pinpoint accuracy. Although best restricted to coyote and smaller-sized game, it could be used for small deer with proper shot placement. It is too light weight for serious use for full-size silhouettes but excellent for other target applications.
The #1895 was introduced in 1988.

|I loaded these in my 7-08 using AR2208 and they shoot 15mm groups at 100 metres. They pulverize varmints yet hold together enough to drop wild goats where they stand. Outstanding projectile indeed.|

|This is the best bullet that I have found for my 14" 7mm TCU Contender. The gun shot amazing .750" 100 yard groups with other bullets, but the groups shrunk to .500" with the 100gr HP. I recently ran these 20 for 20 on a 2" gong at 200 yards just to prove to a AR shooter that my little handgun is more accurate then his rifle, it was no contest. After getting these set up I went on a squeeker hunt in WY, these work wonderful on game and I had many kills from 150 to 250 yards, they hit hard and give and wonderful meat report.|

|These things are like lasers! stacking shots in my 7-08 is seen in every 5 shot group. Using 46 grains of 4350 with standard OAL in my Sako A7. Still havent shot anything other then paper but hoping to see a yote soon to see the damage.|
