Sierra Bullets has announced a new reloading bullet into their fold that will be a Gamechanger, literally! Their new Tipped Gameking bullet has been dubbed the “Gamechanger” and is initially being offered in 5 different caliber tips and grain weights exclusively through Midway USA. At the moment, if you want to give these potentially very impactful bullet tips a try you will be forced to spend your dollars with Midway USA, but this will not be a permanent sales move by Sierra Bullets. Beginning on September 1st, you will have the ability to purchase these bullets from all of your traditional reloading component retailers as well.

All of the boxes that can be currently found online are available in quantities of 100 bullets per box. In the future you will also have the option to buy in smaller quantities of 50 tips per box. All of the currently available bullet types can be viewed below.

  • 6mm (.243”) 90 Grain | Polymer-Tipped Spitzer Boat-Tail | Midway $28.99
  • 6.5mm (.264”) 130 Grain | Polymer-Tipped Spitzer Boat-Tail | Midway $42.99
  • .270 Cal (.277”) 140 Grain | Polymer-Tipped Spitzer Boat-Tail | Midway $36.99
  • 7mm (.284”) 165 Grain | Polymer-Tipped Spitzer Boat-Tail | Midway $38.99
  • .30 Cal (.308”) 165 Grain | Polymer-Tipped Spitzer Boat-Tail | Midway $45.99

Another thing that these bullets are ushering in for Sierra Bullets is a new logo, more impressive advertising and bright new packaging. Advertising can often be viewed as art, and in my humble opinion, their new graphics, advertising and logo look great! Let’s return back to discussing their new bullets though.

The beauty of the new Gamechanger is that it melds some of the best properties from a lot of their current bullets. You get terminal performance down range and the accuracy you would desire to hit your given target. To better explain this, watch Sierra Bullets’ newest promotional video for the Tipped Gameking below.

So if you are a reloader like myself, you likely have some stalwart tips that you turn to every time you are planning a hunt. Do you think that these new Tipped Gamekings will find their way to your reloading bench? Let us know in the comments below what you think! Also, feel free to share any recipes you have been experiencing success with from their traditional Gamekings.

    I have shot and killed 14 deer with my 18" SPR AR 15 over the years using the 65gr SGK running at 3000+ fps with a healthy dose of AA2520. Half of them when hit behind the front shoulder- all heart / lung shots- slammed to the ground, kicked a few times and then expired. Ranges were from 40 yds to 165 yds out in a field with a large doe.
    The other half either fell down, got up and ran 20-30 yds before expiring. I had 1 instance of a long raking shot quartering away from me. The 7 pt ran about 80 yds and not sure why. I just de boned it and didn't open up the body cavity due to the weather, so out of 14 nice NC deer, 13 were either slammed down and stayed put, and the other half bucked hard or fell down and ran 20-30 yds. I use this rifle and load when hunting where my short range stand is and usually the shots are under 80 yds except the 1 shot, flop , bang at 165 yds on a very large NC doe.
    I don't use this rifle/ caliber/ load all the time, just when I need a short, maneuverable brush rifle to thread btwn the trees/ brush.
    1 large 8 pt I shot just at dusk, perfect thread the needle shot btwn trees/ brush at 80 yds while it was rubbing a tree, was a bang / flop. Upon walking up to it, a hunk of the 65gr sgk went the whole way thru out the other side of the lungs, then 1 piece broke off and broke the spine, then a piece broke off and broke both shoulders anchoring it right where I shot it, no following a blood trail needed.
    I will continue to use this great combination for filling tags later in the season as I have since 2006. Kudos to Sierra! I did a lot of research before using a .223 (my chambering is .223 Wyle) on deer as I am a very humane hunter and always have been. Just my 2 cents....
