Bullet review
For years I used the 70 HPBT Sierra Match pill in .243Win for hunting with Good results in my Rem:788 (First model)it was a good Roo load for Head or chest shots. also it was good on foxes, cats ,rabbits etc: I took it hunting Donkeys in the N.T. it was deadly with frontal head shots on Donkeys at 100 and 150Yards shattering all of the bone in the skull and popping the eyes out onto the donkeys cheeks with instant death every time it was very effective, The Load was IMR4350 DuPont powder ( AR2209 Equivalent) with Winchester cases CCI Primers the exact charge weight is now lost to me as I don't own a .243Win any more and my early loading data book also lost some years ago, many said that IMR4350 as to slow for a .243 70 grain bullet But I found that the muzzle flash was very small at night. Well placed this pill will kill we out of its category with fine accuracy, and in my book accuracy and placement are more important than speed.

My choice for the .243 bore and varmits. In the 6mm Rem 49 grains H4831 yields 3255 feet per sec. and 1/2" groups in the old 788. In the 243 Win 37 grains H4895 yields 3110 feet per sec. and 5/8" groups in my father's pre-64 model 70.

I've loaded several different bullets for my 223, but so far the Sierra 52 gr HPBT Matchking is the most accurate. Haven't tried it on dogs yet...still playing with my new 204! Load for 223 is 28 grs Win 748

I reload my weatherby .308 win with 165 gr sierra hpbt in front of 43.5 gr of ar2206 using winchester brass and cci 200 primers with oal of 70.5 mm. I have found this load to be quite accurate in this rifle, averages .58 moa in a four shot group, can't wait to see how they perform on game.

Long time standard varmint bullet for my 6mm Rem. 40-XB. For years used 46.0 gr. IMR-4350, CCI-200BR primer, W-W cases for 3350 fps with this bullet. This projectile is as accurate as any match bullet (always under .5 MOA in the 40-XB and expands violently at any range, even at low remaining velocities. Often will not exit on a large chuck. Lately have been using the 90 gr. Berger HPBT because of its better BC. So far terminal performance with it has been good on varmints, but my experience is limited. I've shot literally many hundreds of chucks, crows, and a couple of foxes with the 6mm Sierra, however, with always spectacular terminal results.
