The BlitzKing is designed in a similar fashion as Sierra’s popular MatchKing competition bullet. The biggest difference between the two is the BlitzKing’s polymer tip, which disrupts the thin jacket on impact to trigger violent, fragmentary terminal expansion.
This round’s BlitzKing is a little thing at 105 grains. But by shedding so much inertia, the bullet is able to pick up a velocity of ~3,150 fps before reaching the muzzle. Sierra reports the round’s G1 ballistic coefficient at 0.425. In other words, the BlitzKing should hit with ~1,700 ft lbs of energy at 200 yards – and drop about -6.1” 100 yards farther down the lane.
Sierra bullets are always in high demand by handloaders. This loaded ammunition saves you a lot of steps, and it also features nickel-plated brass cases that’ll smooth out functioning in your semi-auto.
