7 mm/.284 Caliber (.284) 120 gr. SPT
For rifles in 7mm caliber, the 120 grain #1900 Spitzer bullet offers exceptional accuracy at high velocities for hunting large varmints, small game and medium game. When used at 7mm-08 or 7x57mm velocities, it is an exceptional performer on deer or antelope. When used in magnum cases with heavy loads, this superbly accurate bullet becomes an extremely effective long-range varmint bullet.
In handguns, the 120 grain #1900 bullet would be a good choice for medium game in cartridges of this size. Good ballistic shape and traditional Sierra accuracy make these bullets excellent choices for all target work. The pinpoint accuracy of this bullet makes it a good choice for both varmints and target competition.

|This bullet will hold up to 7mm rem mag speed. Shot a 9 point 200 pound buck quartering towards me between the shoulders. Blew up the heart and lungs. No exit but the deer took all the energy in the vitals and that's how I like my bullet to perform. Had a awesome wound channel and the buck didn't take a step. I load these to 3300 fps and get .25 inch groups out of my tikka t3. Great built bullet! They defiantly passed the penetration test. Thank you Sierra for a great product! Can't wait to shoot one broadside to see the results.|

|Shot the smallest 3 shot group ever (1/4") with this 120 and Varget powder out of my Rem 700 7mm08 at a MV of 2800. Shot a large 11 pt. buck in November at 150 yards. Deer went about 40 yards. Bullet entered tight behind right leg, between ribs, exited same distance behind left leg, breaking a rib. Lungs were destroyed, quite a bit of blood gelling under the shoulders but very little meat loss. I've also used the 140 Pro Hunter with excellent results. I tried the 120 hoping for quicker expansion and maybe less running but with lung shots, that is the norm it seems. If I needed to shoot through the shoulder, I'd prefer the 140.|
