Brand: Sierra 1340
Sierra BlitzKing bullets are used for varmint hunting, the Sierra BlitzKing bullet has a plastic tip inserted into the bullet cavity, which expands on impact and delivers high ballistic coefficient.
0.142 sectional density
0.222 ballistic coefficient at 2,800 fps and above
0.217 ballistic coefficient between 2,800 and 1,800 fps
0.207 ballistic coefficient at 1,800 fps and below
All Sierra bullet jackets are made from gilding metal, a copper alloy composed of 95% copper and 5% zinc. Sierra makes the core of the bullet from four lead alloys: 6% antimony-4% tin, 6% antimony, 3% antimony, 1 1/2% antimony and pure lead. For each bullet, Sierra selects the proper lead alloy for the best combination of accuracy and expansion in the finished projectile. A customized lead extrusion process contributes to our product uniformity. Varmint hunting places extreme demands on bullet performance. Such bullets must be exceptionally accurate to hit small targets, lightly constructed to provide explosive expansion while minimizing ricochets, and lightweight to obtain high velocities with flat trajectories.
