This round’s hollow point boat tail projectile is nothing less than Sierra’s world-famous MatchKing. The MatchKing’s hollow point does not provide terminal expansion – the opening in the bullet’s tip provided access to the lead core while it was still molten. The form-fitted core’s jacket is drawn to a concentricity standard of ±0.0003” to promote even greater rotational stability. And thanks to its streamlined profile and optimally angled boat tail, the 175 grain HPBT exhibits a G1 BC of 0.505. That’s ballistically efficient enough to keep the bullet supersonic at ranges beyond 1,000 yards.
MatchKing Competition ammo is loaded with premium brass to ensure optimal feeding, chambering and extraction, and its non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder are both fastidiously matched to produce clockwork 2,600 fps muzzle velocities. This match ammo supplies the precision you need to bag varmints as well!
