This cartridge sports the lighter 155 grain .30 cal MatchKing. It is a match grade hollow point boat tail, with a jacket that is drawn within an exacting concentricity standard of ±0.0003” in max variation. This is not a hunting bullet – the MatchKing only has a hollow point because its core is inserted into place so it can perfectly match the jacket’s contours once it hardens.
The precision poured lead core possesses no voids that could have harmed balance, and it is measured so that no MatchKing deviates from 155 grains by more or less than 0.3 grains. The MatchKing ends in a boat tail, a feature which helps the HPBT retain more velocity, hold on to a flatter trajectory, and hold out against crosswinds.
The MatchKing’s stellar accuracy is as valuable at the rifle range as it is for varmint hunting. Federal takes care to put the MatchKing’s consistent ballistics on full display by loading it with a premium brass case, benchrest-grade match primer, and specially formulated powder.
