7 mm/.284 Caliber (.284) 150 gr. SBT
For rifles chambered in 7mm cartridges, this bullet has the heavy, double-tapered Sierra jacket for hunting. The 150 grain #1913 Spitzer Boat Tail bullet is a little heavier and thus provides a high ballistic coefficient compared to the 140 grain bullet. It is an excellent choice as a lighter bullet in any of the 7mm magnum cartridges for use at medium to long ranges. Both bullets are superbly accurate and provide excellent expansion with good penetration on medium game at ranges to 500 yards.
In handguns the 150 grain #1913 bullet is considered too "tough" for smaller cartridges, such as the 7mm TCU and 7mm BR. However, these bullets are seeing much use in the Remington XP-100 chambered for the 7mm-08 Remington or in similar cartridge/handgun combinations for both target shooting and hunting applications. This bullet is a good choices when driven at 2500 fps or more for medium or large game at typical handgun ranges. Using this bullet for hunting is limited to muzzle velocities achievable with only a select few cartridge and handgun combinations, but no such restrictions apply to target use. This bullet can be used in all 7mm cartridges for target shooting.
The #1913 was introduced in 1987.

|My favorite medium game load for 7mm Rem. Mag. uses this bullet at about 3000 fps using IMR-4831. Accuracy is superb and I've taken 3 Pronghorn at 150 yards on the short end and 250 on the long end. All were immediate one shot kills with complete penetration on broadside shots, but I could tell the bullet was coming apart and I would probably switch to a 160 for anything larger than medium deer. For medium game though, this bullet is top notch.|

|The 150gn Game King with Superformance powder from my 280 Rem has outstanding long-rang accuracy. The ability to mushroom and penetrate the full width of the deer without falling to pieces makes for bang-flop hunting.|
