.338 Caliber (.338) 215 gr. SBT

These bullets have been designed for the 338 Winchester Magnum cartridge. Controlled, but reliable expansion and deep penetration are assured by a heavy double-tapered jacket and hard core. The Sierra Spitzer Boat Tail shape assures a flat trajectory, minimum wind sensitivity and precise accuracy at long range for both bullets. The 215 grain #2610 has been designed as a higher-velocity, lighter bullet for the 338 Winchester Magnum, although it is considered light for the 340 Weatherby Magnum. This bullet is suitable for medium through elk-sized game. The #2610 bullet will reliably withstand 338 Winchester Magnum velocities. Shooters using the 338-06 or similar cartridge must keep loads with the 215 grain #2610 bullet near maximum velocity levels for reliable expansion. Hunting rifles have shown extraordinary accuracy with this bullet in spite of the robust recoil of maximum loads.

Have been using this bullet in my .338 Federal. Like most cartridges based on the .308 case, this one is very accurate and the 5 or 6 deer I've killed with the cartridge have dropped like they were hit by lightning. ( Well, maybe one or two ran a short distance) I'm sorry Sieraa is out of these because deer season is just ahead and without a supply of these bullets to go with my ReadyToLoad brass I will have to plan on using another rifle. Bummer.

I'm sold on Sierra Game kings for my .340 WBY. I've taken several elk using 215 grain game kings and the penetration and weight retention are excellent. This was best exemplified when I shot an atypical through the large leg bone just below the front shoulder. The Game King shattered that bone passing through the ribs, lung, heart, stopping just outside the far side of the rib cage.
