I'm sure they have a solid reason for that. Sierra does extensive ballistics testing on all types of brass/projectile combinations. They have a state of the art 300 meter underground test range below their facility in Sedalia.

I load Sierra projectiles almost exclusively with the exception of Hornady V Max in 22 caliber.
Fits with my suggestion.
