You want your 223 Rem cartridge to give you two great advantages while you’re hunting small and tenacious beasts: great accuracy, and devastating terminal performance. This round’s 55 grain BlitzKing offers both in full. Its uniformly distributed jacket and core promote stellar in-flight stability, and its profile, boat tail, and polymer tip all streamline its overall form so it can retain greater velocity for a flatter trajectory. And when the BlitzKing’s green polymer tip sinks into a varmint or predator, it effectively lights the fuse on total disruption of the entire bullet. No small game can resist such massive cavitation!
Sierra loaded their preeminent varmint bullet with clean burning propellant, a non-corrosive Boxer primer, and a new production brass case.
Thumbs Upon 11/23/2020
Years ago, I was into reloading metallic cartridges on a Dillon 550B.
Among others, I reloaded triple-deuce (.222 Rem) with Sierra 55 gr Blitz bullets.
Back then it was just called "Blitz".
Deadly on groundhogs with my tuned reloads from an old Savage bolt action.
Now I have an AR15 and intend to get back into groundhog shooting.
I must say this factory ammo surprised me.
Factory ammo from an AR15? Yes.
It's very accurate and loaded rather hot.
I can't comment on terminal performance, but if it's on par with the old 55 gr Blitz, it's gonna be all one could desire in a varmint load.
Fast shipping. Thumbs up.
