The MatchKing may be a hollow point boat tail, but its nose cavity is not capable of triggering terminal expansion. The meplat’s narrow opening is just wide enough for Sierra to inject molten lead through it – which is precisely how they create the MatchKing’s voidless core which is perfectly molded to the interior geometry of the jacket. The jacket is drawn to a ±0.0003” concentricity standard to further improve in-flight gyroscopic stability. The MatchKing’s narrow tip, ballistic jacket profile and sloping boat tail are all in service of conserving the 69 grain projectile’s velocity. At 0.165, the HPBT’s G7 ballistic coefficient ensures supersonic flight until just past 800 yards.
Federal’s highest-grade brass cases, Gold Medal match primers, and specially formulated propellant let the MatchKing achieve its highest potential. Order the whole case of 200 rounds and still put one hole through your target!
