Great Deal on Sierra Varmint Bullets

Jeff Bartlett of GIBrass.com has some great prices on new Sierra production 55gr varmint bullets, .224 diameter. Two varieties are offered:

55gr BlitzKing with cannelure. Sierra item #9373.
Prices: $12/100; $55/500; $100 per thousand

55gr Varminter Soft Point. Sierra item #1360.
Prices: $12/100; $55/500; $100 per thousand.

Bartlett’s special production BlitzKings have cannelures, making them better for reloaders who prefer to crimp their ammo. Regular production Sierra 55gr BlitzKings (Sierra #1455) have no cannelure and typically sell for $16/box. Jeff also reports that he has plenty of the ultra-accurate ‘Euro’ 4895 powder, highly recommended by G. Salazar of ShootersJournal.com. This burns slightly slower than IMR 4895, closer to IMR 4064. It works great in the 6mmBR and .308 Win. Price is $100 per 8-lb jug.
