  1. Sierra Bullets need seated deeper?

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I loaded Sierra Game Kings in my 6.5 Creedmoor and Sierra Match Kings in my sons .308 I was having issues with the bolts being very tight and not wanting to close. Turns out the bullet is a different shape I saw a guy on youtube mention it. Seated them .05 lower and bam was loading...
  2. 308 Sierra TMK

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I just bought my first box of .308 TMK's for my 20" 700, who's tried them and who's shot deer with them? I know it's not intended to be a "hunting" bullet but it looks like it would expand better than the SMK. J.B.
  3. Sierra Game King Seating Variance

    Reloading/Ammunition
    Was loading some 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser. Was using Sierra Game kings in 140 gr, #1730. Had them set at 2.460 seat depth to the ogive using an older box that called them spitzers. Opened a box with the new label. Same #1730 but say SBT. Bullet looks identical to the eye. Seating depth changed...

    Reloading/Ammunition

  6. Need AR load data w/CFE-223, using 52gr Sierra HPBT

    General Firearms Discussion
    I am a new member and have a new build-up AR 1-7 T w/20", 1" dia SS barrel that I plan to use the CFE-223 powder, if I can get a good starting load. Does anyone have any suggestions ??? Sierra doesn't have any up to date data for the AR and directed me to Hodgeon Powder Co. I will call them...
  7. Sierra Game King HPBT

    Reloading/Ammunition
    Tried some these SGK in my boss new Ruger M77 Hawkeye in 308 the other day. First load worked great at 350 yards out of the tiny barrel. 43gr Varget was a little warm but shot good. What i thought was funny is the hole they cut in the electric tape. Matchs the HP. They shot a lot better...
