Did multiple searches and found zero results, presenting the possibility that awareness of this option has escaped the hive mind here. Or maybe the search function isn't that great on this site.

Online prices for the bullets are less than the similar TMKs.

I asked Sierra CS about the factory loaded ammo...
https://www.sierrabullets.com/product/3 ... k-b-c-298/

...and was told, "The bullet was designed specificaaly for the 300 AAC Blackout. Feed and function has been very good. Test barrel length was 16” with Muzzel [sic] Velocity of 2115 fps."

This is one of the few factory loads that seems to be quality that I can find in stock for <$1/rd right now.

On the face of it, it seems like a good option that may shake out on par or better than a 125 SST.

Has anyone tested with this stuff? Do we just not like it? Did Sierra not do a good job promoting it? It seems to be a fairly new product - maybe it's just not out in distribution in a lot of places yet.

Until I see at least a gel test, I will stick to Barnes 110 Tac Tx. The sig 120 looks like a good round though. Haven’t tried it though.

looks good. I would try them but they are more expensive than the SST bullets that I have had excellent real world results with.

Buy some and test them, to let us know how it goes.

:shock:
Just as soon as you buy some of the Sig ammo and test that.

Or any of the others bullets you have wanted other people to provide test results for.

I'm a dealer and haven't been able to lay my hands on a box of these. In the meantime I have sold gobs of the 150 gr. Gold Dot. I'll have to test it or see it tested from someone I know before I'd say it could whoop the 125 SST. Hope it does, means the caliber is gaining ground yet again and driving mfg. to make specific components.

I’ll pass on this bullet after Sierra answered my email about minimum fps for expansion, which they stated 1800 fps.
