.30 Caliber (.308) 85 gr. RN

This 85 grain #8005 Round Nose SportsMaster bullet is for use in 30 caliber handguns only. The thin jacket and large exposed lead nose provide good expansion in varmints and small game at moderate handgun ranges when loaded and fired in cartridges, such as the 30 M1 Carbine and the 32-20 (in handguns with .308 inch bores for the 32-20 cartridge). It is an excellent selection for varmints and small game and has traditional Sierra accuracy for informal target practice.

I had been looking for a bullet to use in reloading my 30 cal Luger. Other than a hollow point in 309 I was not able to find anything. This bullet loaded just fine in my reused 30 cal Luger brass and had no problems with feeding. Accuracy was just as good as any available ammo for 30 Luger. I am very satisfied.

Loaded in my 7.62x25. A little pricey but for that weapon you have few choices. Loaded with 8 grains of longshoft nice load not to hot. Estimated fps 1750.

Excellent 30 Cal bullet!. I use this for target with my 7.62X25 Tokarev. It fires well in my reloads and is comparable to the S&B 85 gr FMJ bullet. I load the sierra with 7gr of Blue Dot & get a 4" pattern at 50 yds. Not bad for a 71 yr old vet huh?
