Brand: Sierra 2400
Sierra's bullets are all purpose designed for a specific task, and the Pro-hunter is no exception. The Pro-hunter bullets feature a tapered jacket and soft lead point, to promote uniform expansion, and retain mass upon impact. Pro-Hunter bullets are Sierra's go-to bullet for all hunting applications.
All modern 8mm rifles, including all German military arms manufactured since 1905, use .323 inch diameter bullets. However, German military rifles manufactured between 1888 and 1905 used a .318 inch diameter bullet. Many of those rifles were rebarreled to .323 inch bores after 1905, but some rifles of the smaller bore size were brought back from WWI and WWII and still exist. Some German sporting guns, particularly combination guns made until 1938, used 8mm cartridges with .318 inch diameter bullets. Sometimes, a .323 inch diameter bullet can be loaded and fired in a cartridge intended for a .318 inch groove diameter, but dangerously high chamber pressures result. If you do not know that your bore size is .323 inch, slug your barrel before loading .323 inch diameter bullets. There are two Pro-Hunter bullets in .323 inch caliber in Sierra's line and both are the Spitzer type.
These 8mm hunting bullets provide exceptional accuracy together with deep penetration and reliable expansion on medium and heavier game. The 150 grain #2400 is an excellent choice for medium game at typical 8mm Mauser velocities, but it will be too destructive when used in the 8mm Remington Magnum.
The traditional, flat base design of the Pro-Hunter has been skillfully blended with Sierra's world-famous accuracy. Our custom tapered Pro-Hunter jacket design helps assure maximum expansion, optimum weight retention and deep penetration for game stopping, one shot performance.
