    Sierra tgk gamechanger bullets

    Anyone have a chance to try these on a live target? Are they just a clone of the Hornady SSTs?

    well

    Sierra makes great bullets, but they are all cup and core designs that lots of folks have moved beyond for their own reasons. I'm sure they will work fine for their intended game. Most of us hunt pretty thin skin game, deer, antelope and a cup and core bullet in fine, inexpensive and promotes shooting and practice the maybe a higher priced bullet doesn't.

    I loaded a box of 20 with CCI BR-2 primer, 61 grains of IMR7828 and went to the range. Rifle was a Rem 700 with Shilen barrel in 6.5-06AI 9 twist. Took my first lope with it in 1987. Used it last year with rem 9 1/2 Primer, 61 grains of IMR7828 and Hornady 129 gr interlocks. The rifle is likely needing a new barrel and the barrel isn't as free floating as it needs to be. The 3 shots in the lower left are the Hornadys. The ones in the center are the TGKs. Not what I was hoping to see for the TGK, but I'm still going to use it to fill one tag.

    Got 2 antelope with them today. Worked great. One was DRT before he hit the ground. The other ran in a small circle and died. Minimal meat damage from what I can tell.
