In rifles, this 100 grain Spitzer bullet #1540 has a heavy, double-tapered jacket to ensure adequate penetration with reliable expansion on medium game. This bullet may be the correct choice for hunting large varmints as well as deer or antelope. It also may be the bullet of choice in some rifle’s because its flat base construction enhances accuracy in that particular rifle.

In handguns, the 100 grain #1540 Spitzer bullet is too “hard” for use on field game due to the moderate velocities from all but the largest wildcat cartridges. However, this bullet will deliver to outstanding accuracy in long-range target competition and high momentum downrange for silhouette competition from handgun barrels with standard twist rates.

The #1540 was introduced in 1956.
